Return late at night, the evening branches know nothing. Only the moon sometimes catches a glimpse, a stooped shadow moving along a darkened wall. t he pas t Sometimes departed spirits wake up inside me, they set off wildfires and floods in my heart. With great regret I have to tell them, Too late, the grave is dug, grass grows over it. Translations by Kevin Bowen and Nguyen Ba Chung
