  Yi Mi Yi
Translated from Chinese by Shilin Ou

When I cannot fall asleep,
I undress
one piece after another.

It's just a few pieces:
a nightdress,
a corset
and a tiny pale-white brief.
Soon nothing left.

Yet if I cannot melt myself
with such darkness,
I bend my body
like being in the womb.

Unexpectedly I sob.
I am now so skilled in crying,
which I did not learn
before I was born.
