Lê Vĩnh Tài |You’re a fungi (12)

slow and gently began to show

By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translated by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

The fungi is you
slow and gently
began to show
delicate and fragile
as though the earth is crumbling at your very feet.
_____

Bạn nấm
chậm và thật nhẹ nhàng
bạn nhú lên
mong manh
như thể cả trái đất sụp đổ dưới chân bạn.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
