The Long Nose of Pinocchio
The Long Nose of Pinocchio by Nung-Hsin Hu / 皮諾丘的長鼻子：攝影與文字創作 by 胡農欣
In the brain, the section controls believing also dominates the sense of smell
Taste turns out to be as abstract as religion
This time, Pinocchio doesn’t lie. The nose which gets longer is because of the lie hidden in food.
In stewed tofu which is dipped in soy sauce,
he smells the test paper with failing grade on which he disguised his parent’s signature
In crispy stuff fried in oil, he smells the betrayal behind lover’s over thoughtful behavior
he smells the betrayal behind lover’s over thoughtful behavior
In greasy flavor mixing with the sour of pickles,
he remembers the promises which was never fulfilled
The delicious food hidden behind all the lies is the most real
Smell disperses and becomes an element in memory.
The memory with all flavors makes up the so-called real flavor
The sense of smell turns out to be interlocked with religion.
