“This is the query I have asked faces for long years, but I have never got a simple answer.
Having frustrated of talking to the faces, I turned to the only real person I knew ever: to myself!
I asked myself of the mysteries around the faces but suddenly found out another face is standing in front of me; a blind and veiled one the same as others.
Then my world collapsed down as my life became these faces!
I have not seen anything excluding the trans-shaped faces and not heard anything but the sweet lies.
And as if for centuries, I have been assuming that life is just a nonsense joke full of faces playing identity while holding none.
A bitter and terrible joke;
A joke existing through suffering and torture;
A joke which itself is confused and lost!”
