Jiang Tao

Third year in primary school,
our class goes to climb the Great Goose Pagoda.
As we line up
a group of tall and gleaming white
Europeans comes by.
An old lady
gently pulls me out of our ranks
for a photo together.
Our class monitor smiles on the side.
This morning
our group from China
comes to Cambodia’s Cultural Village.
From a mother who looks less than 40
I take a boy
to hold him for a photo.
Like holding
myself as a child.
