ZANG DI Four Poems association of absolute aesthetics I squat down, waiting to h ear an earthworm, thin as a shoelace, speak. By my side is a field of knee-high cano la. I lay down my bike. There seems to be no way to get lost out here. Everybody, once grown up, cla ims they have not seen a talking worm. e w Th orld is small enough, but st ill you can’t find what you really want. Mr. Earthworm, do you know what you desir e most? The string of your body looks very short, like an invit ation for us to use you as bait. And your slender figure, very suitable for a tango under ground. This is also why I respect you. I have more patience for you t han I have for my own life. I don’t care about your gender. If I ask you to be my m use, do you care that this poem is so clean, without any mud? Translation by Ming Di and Neil Aitken 161 the books of the original role Years ago my body missed m e.
