I want to rush home

by the door

her, of a brilliant dusk

.

I’m in minutes fragile

as clouds

high and falling

.

a kiss

quivering music

.

tôi muốn chạy về thật nhanh

bên bục cửa

cô gái của buổi chiều rạng rỡ

.

giây phút tôi thấy mình mỏng manh 

như đám mây

phồng lên và trút xuống

.

một nụ hôn

rung như âm nhạc

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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