The Echo is Neither Sound nor Hope

I had to hang on to this for a while.  My unequal translation to Robert’s poem (below):

回音不是聲與夢

空樹

喑窗

座間之間

未變

像你

無言

(c) Mary Tang 2015

O at the Edges

The Echo is Neither Sound nor Hope

empty trees

a darkened
window

the void
between chairs

unchanged

as if you’d never spoken
