Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Happy Anniversary Mr. Tran ! (82)

A Mars bar for lunch,
Or wet sandwiches surprise.
(Already a gourmet cook!)
Your jacket hung
___ on thin shouders.

Happy anniversary Mr. Tran !

In a simpler time:
I was barely a graduate,
You in a hundred dollar suit
___ from Lowe’s.

A Mars bar for lunch,
Or wet sandwiches surprise.
(Already a gourmet cook!)
Your jacket hung
___ on thin shouders.

We had two rooms,
Two pairs of chopsticks,
A bowl of rice,
Piled on with morning glory.

Days long ago
Months so pass by
Two hearts a light
Blink, twenty one years.

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