I feel I am an observer, a traveler, and a passenger....

travelling in a time machine.

Isolation...
alone in a crowd.
"扶摇万重兮,
放我麒麟冲荡。
清清渭水兮,
舞我手中霓裳。 "

that is the short version of the original poem...
the poem is basically about the speaker trying to define/draw beauty. the speakers see a lot of unfamiliar faces in the metro and claimed that they are beautiful. yet he cant not find words to describe such beauty. if one read enough of eraz pound, he/she can tell that almost all of pound's poem is about a moment in time.
In college alone and I am loving it. ^^
