Ma Fei singing

Ma Fei

When I was small,
five different girls
slept at our house.
They were all called Zhaodi.
Zhaodi means “beckoning younger brother”.
My mother was president
of the women‘s association
so she brought them home.
They all had injuries on their faces
or on their bodies.
My mother dabbed them with medicine.
Secretly I took a look.
Only one of the five
beckoned a younger brother.
But he died very soon.
That one Zhaodi
who had had a “didi”,
she had even more injuries.
