The songs of metal-UYÊN NGUYÊN

.
November
how many times have I seen you
in the overcast afternoon
like this moment
when the clouds bask in the sun
on the roof of the city
storks are standing on one leg thinking
.
i see you
in the eyes of
the northern hemisphere autumn
a little late sunshine
splendid chrysanthemum
my throat is emitting a magical music
the sound of metal colliding
I feel like a street troubadour
who sings the poems in exile
the poems become the metal songs
in the ears of November
songs that natives have never heard
.
November
I sing you
Topaz crystal song
a story told in silent notes
written on stone lines
as secret as the life of an exile
that city
I’m red the color of dawn
of november
.
the song has just reached the chorus
the sound of a lonely bronze drum
out of rhythm
.
it stands quietly
smiling with sunflowers and
sculptural motifs are heart-wrenching
you beat me
with the rhythm of an eerie silence
an ever contemplative battle drum
.
Saigon Place
deeply in the heart of November
.
