The two Chinese characters “農用” stand for “Farm-Use”, which are printed on most farm tools in Taiwan. The Chinese characters “黑皮” phonetically sound like “happy” in English, but literally, they bear the meaning of “black exterior”; so the wordplay is used here to question is it HAPPY or BLACK?
The “Happy or Black Book” is an alternative version of farmer's almanac. From the already delineated seasons, we could look into how out of touch are we with the ways we treat the environment and its creatures.

三七五減租。公地放領。耕者有其田。農復會。香蕉王國。GATT關稅貿易協定。老農津貼。土地徵收條例。休耕政策。農村再生計畫。跨世紀農業建設新策略。WTO。土地正義。
(農用):是農家器具上所噴用的揭示字詞。黑皮=HAPPY或者BLACK?
黑皮書或許是一本農民曆,在早已劃定的時節中,我們對待環境萬物如何脫節。

星期天的早晨無事,我們停止製造荒涼
遠方的轟炸聲傳不到我們耳裡
有一些無關的生命活著,有些則不
會議桌上的人們低頭私語,擘劃著其他的國家
收音機每隔一小時流出訊息的肉汁
星期天的早晨我不上教堂,我上英文課。
這是我們的小屋
這是我們的雨水
這是我們綿延的臉
這是我們的海岸線。
