RESIGNED TO HER FATE – 默问 Mo Wen

十二月 10, 2020

Mo Wen
THIS IS TO BE RESIGNED TO YOUR FATE

Today I return to our village,
a sister sits at her door, wipes her mobile,
sees me, smiles, welcoming me.
She has no bra,
her large breasts
and her round protruding belly
they resemble three uncles
who look like each other.
She is over fifty,
actually just turned fifty
and sinking down.

ARRIVALS

people’s names on the boards at arrivals
written in english
or in chinese
written in arabic script
at international arrivals, leaning against the railing
in the corridor along the exit
people are swarming
some of the names carried off by a smile or a hug
some of the names haven’t arrived at being carried off
they are waiting together
becoming familiar
some even looking in one direction
standing next to each other
beginning to talk
