DOU FENGXIAO Just when I think about getting acr oss the river, a boat comes towar d me. “Wait for me,” I say aloud. It’s an old vessel marked by the passing y ears, blue-and-red stripes, and brown r ust glaring. Has there been such a boat on the r iver? No one has seen what it was bef ore. Nor will I see what it will be in the future. At this moment, over the wa ter sheltered by the mountains’ reflect ions, the boat comes quietly. It comes as it is needed. Is this what I’ve been waiting for? Has it imagin ed me as well? If it comes from my min d, why isn’t it a new boat? e r Th iver is immensely empty. A cloud moves as if pulling a pennant flag. I stand by the riv erside watching the boat come straight to me like a sailor. Translation by Ming Di
