Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Dear Pen Pal (70)

Knocking
On the heart of one thought dead
a poet.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

 

Dear Pen Pal,

 

Knock knock on the decades

The littered letters hugged you

 

Knock on the casket

A mummy of you inside

 

Your blood seeping through the bandages(the jest)

They – saw you 

(you, with no use for clothes)

 

Knocking

On the heart of one thought dead

a poet.

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