Distant Heaven
By Yuan Hongri
Translation by Manu Mangattu

Often I see the future city of the giant.
The young giants in and out of the great mansion in platinum
And I’m one of them
In the body the sacred flame burns
On the head flickers the signs of zodiac
And the Diamond eyes glimpse the distant kingdom of heaven!
