A poem in Vietnamese by Đinh Trường Chinh Translator: Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm
I see people not by the colour of their eyes I see people not by their vernacular I see people not by their sex I see people not by their hair their lips their teeth their nose. – I see people by their heartbeat I see people by the expression in their eyes their sympathy their breath I see people with the same red blood as mine the blood dripping down this life. – I see people in the dark of night I see people in the light I see people in ruin I see people in hope I see myself in people I see in people I. — June 2022 _
