Self-portrait


Huai Shu
Translated from Chinese by Ou Shilin

Self-portrait

I paint my self-portrait
on white paper, using white colour.
I spread white pigments on it,
so that my hair is white;
my face is white;
my entire body is white.
My friend, you see,
even my expression is white.
What I actually want to tell you
is that my heart is white.
If I could not help shedding tears
on the paper, I believe my tears
should be white.
