Song I Sing

Sông I Sing

Song is a Vietnamese word for river.  Here, Bao Phi’s deft play on words serve as the title for his first book of poetry.  I discovered his work sometime back when I was reading parts of Nam Le’s book.  I believe the cover is by Binh Danh.

When it feels like no one
lets you live
at your own volume

You sing.

~ Bao Phi
