Retrospect


Xue Nü
Translated from Chinese by Ou Shilin

I grew up partly since I met you;
but with you I have never said a word.
Lombardy poplars clamor in the air. Infinite wilderness
falls silent with me;
healing my difficult disease are the cold needles,
and two or three sorts of tablets.
The boy next room, again he disobeys
doctor's orders.
It was in that autumn when I regained my faith,
maintaining my enthusiasm with the adult world
with caution.
