HAND – 叶臻

Ye Zhen

Ye Zhen

After my mother got parkinson’s syndrome,
she could not pinch the dough to make Jiaozi.
When I was home for the Lunar New Year,
my mother’s hand was often pinched by my hand,
as if I was putting in filling for Jiaozi.
Sometimes my mother’s hand pinched my hand,
as if she was pinching dough.
Mother and son, we made our Jiaozi for Lunar New Year.
But we couldn’t stop trembling.
So it fell out right away: the chopped celery, the ground meat
and the cash you put in for luck.

Tr. MW, Dec. 2015
