Lê Vĩnh Tài | A FIELD OF INHUMANITY – 15/37

This Tết, lots of people like you
Chomp on soft stuff like watermelon
But after the first bite lose their teeth

By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

15.

This Tết, lots of people like you
Chomp on soft stuff like watermelon
But after the first bite lose their teeth

_____

Tết này nhiều người giống như bạn
Đã ăn những thứ mềm như dưa hấu
Nhưng cắn vào phải nhả cả hàm răng

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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