As If the Desirable One Comes By
by A-Xiang tr. FAN Jinghua
For quite some years, I haven’t attempted a mountain,
And it recedes way into the distance,
As if a wind walks across the lake and a rain follows,
Growing heavier and heavier, but in due time abates and comes to a halt,
Giving way to the extravaganza of downy snowflakes.
I stretch out my hand and their coldness dissolves on my palm.
As a wooden house floats on the water,
One year suddenly condenses into one day, and for a whole day on a deserted street
I hold an umbrella, walking along as if the desirable one has come by.
Everything appears illusory.
