The Last Fairy Tale

Poems by Zhang Hongxia
Translated by Sophy Chen

I crossed the river, flew in the stomach of the prairie
And turned around over the Mongolian Ger
Like a trained wild horse
Seeing the last round of crescent moon
As seeing the last round of crescent moon
I started to dance

My eyes shortsighted, overlaid and damaged
The last fairy tale, cells of my chest continue to divide
And fill with the bend of Mori Spengler River
