from The Girl in Memory by Yang Lian

Names spread in all directions     like a breeze
That starts with you     yet also dreams beyond your breath
And is forgotten not far away beneath the ground
Or even very far away     walks into the room that yearns for you
Even though you have never entered it

translated by Fang Dai, Dennis Ding, & Edward Morin
