Linh Dinh translates Thanh Thao
POEMS
 
  Hoisting Crane

digging a channel
frog jaw
gouging a hole
holding on
tree roots
tracking worms
swallowing dirt
scooping each pail
dense
slimy
a thousand hearts a thousand lamps
a thousand compressors
limits
dyke breaking
water spilling past doors
I release into you
mesmerized
panting breaths
I go against the seasons rotate the body's clock
hot spot
you mumbling
incantations
scooping each pail
darkness
