By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

.
Where do I go
to escape a bleeding moon?
.
my head spinning, the ire
to sin, burn in a fire
.
to hell with the reasons and meaningful swoon
I am nothing but nerves and heat
cut me off neat
.
beat me into a smithering of dying light
I will not fight
.
stillness is my might.
