TIME FOR DEATH, DEATH IS GOOD – 李茶

TIME FOR DEATH, DEATH IS GOOD

down by the mountain wall
empty pig trough
sun drinks the water

donkey pen stands next to the trough
no donkeys at all

my mother sits weaving in her own house
her loom rattling on, rattling on.
she weaves and she weaves and she looks at the mountain
there is a woman who says from the wall
“red red rose, time for death, death is good.”

Tr. MW, May 2016

Red woman it is time to die
