Chenjiapu Translator Residency

Use leeches, sex and hiking to treat mania
Massage the soles of the feet and pore over texts to treat jealousy
But nostalgia —

take it apart and put it back together yet it’s somehow still stuck, imagine being
subject to communal secrets, how
to speak of a pillar of salt and not
leave slackened time behind, let alone
secrete it away all for oneself

Memories hasten atrophy, the cerebellum
shall with its anger grind it all up
into tiny little jokes, and speaking of dust

the end shall deliver unto the dust its own people
