During days not reserved for me
I went walking in the crowd,
During events not reserved for me
I went wandering in the streets.

When you are cold and exhausted, do you miss our street at night,
The steaming cups of green tea,
My recounting strange incidents
As the rain fell between us?

Ly Hoàng Ly, from, ‘Whispered Confidences For You’, trans. by Châu diễn, Nguyễn Quang Minh, and Rebekah Linh Collins
