Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | I’m on my knees (62)

Wishful from within the haze a maze of longing
Abandoned dazed on the gravel grating

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm, translation from English to Vietnamese by Lê Vĩnh Tài
***

Wishful from within the haze a maze of longing
Abandoned dazed on the gravel grating
I’m on my knees

The engorgement of an ocean of damp wanting.
_____

mơ ước từ mê cung của một sương mù
của khao khát
bị bỏ rơi bàng hoàng
tôi quỳ gối trên sỏi

sự ngấu nghiến một đại dương khát khao ẩm ướt.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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