Doing the Opposite


                                      Yi Mi Yi
Translated from Chinese by Ou Shilin

Mind you I might be doing the opposite.
I might live evenings as days
just to watch you,
and always refuse closing my eyes

Mind you I might handle a wedding like a funeral.
making everyone cry.
I might bury them in the fragrance of Flos Albiziae,
so that they don't shed other tears.

Mind you I might decay in advance
and have hidden the preservatives.
I am no longer eager to be filled up,
but rather be emptied
constantly, a little bit each day,
till nothingness
