Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Why am I so changeable? (2)

I change my face
I change my place
I change the state of my fate.

by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

Why am I so changeable?
I change my face
I change my place
I change the state of my fate.

Why such a mundane insignificant query?
Ask me why the water is green
The Sun so mean
In time takes away my sheen.

Ask me why the sky is blue
Why won’t you
Why won’t you stay true?

Why, why, why you ask.

Think.

Maybe I don’t want to be found
I prefer darkness black and sound.
Inward bound.
