Lê Vĩnh Tài | no. 10:3 – April, the nation breaks in half

the unplanned stroll
following the tanks
to its destination.

By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

 

April

the nation breaks in half

between two skies

 

the unplanned stroll

following the tanks

to its destination.

_____

 

tháng 4

đất nước vỡ đôi

giữa hai bầu trời

 

cuộc đi dạo tình cờ

theo những chiếc tăng

về đích…

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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