Wet footprints on pavements

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

A walk in the rain
Muffling footsteps say
Hey, I’m sane


The pitter-patter on the tin roof
The pulse in my ears
Is it not proof


“Remember me…
for soon I will be gone
until you’re in my arms again.”


Wet footprints on pavements

Remember me.

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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