the songs in patches of the forest
and a peeling wall
the shedding rows of trees
within the glory of the sunset

Nguyễn Man Nhiên | the empty anger spat (7)

the empty anger spat
into a river
a flask of flowers on the table
a bunch of quivering roses

the leaves closing up in the night
to open up in the early morning light

covered in moss was my soul
I see myself heading for the sky

Nguyễn Man Nhiên | Be the ocean (5)

Time isn’t the conqueror of ships
Allow him not another imposing mountain
A kind of fearful mountain at the bottom of a pit
Void of the sightings of white clouds.

their hair on fire
displaying love and death on a plate
an offering in prayer for the Passover

upon the house in the winter and Northeastern wind the returning dreams

as dusk falls steadily into a small full stop
touching upon a sigh
her clothes disappear drifts away into the twilight
