I have been searching for my mother The mother of my creative root I spread open a wad of paper-cut flower that looks like a map I search on it for the origin of my life Paper-cut --- the most common creative expression used by Chinese mothers Paper --- emerged in the 8th century; in the East Han Dynasty in Shaanxi, Tsai Lun made papers Red --- represent the eternal warmth from the maternal glow Taiwan? A name of uncertainty Colonialism, replacement, rotation, eradication, marginalization History is far away from me How do I turn back to search for it? Where Is My Mother?
