DAUGHTER – 邢昊

DAUGHTER

my wife was pregnant
craved for boiled chicken
I bought only tofu
with the rest of the money
I got neruda’s “collected poems”.

my wife was pregnant
craved for baked fish
I bought only cabbage
with the rest of the money
I got pushkin’s biography.

when my daughter was born
she was just three pounds two
kept warm in a box
like a white mouse
crying and crying.

on the first day of 2016
I put a great feast on the table
everything for my daughter.

still very thin and very small
my ravenous daughter
and inside
it still hurts.
