'Iron', An Essay by Zheng Xiaoqiong

https://sydneyreviewofbooks.com/iron-zheng-xiaoqiong/

Translated from the Chinese by Isabelle Li.

"The tick-tock of time dripped from clocks like rust stains, dot by dot, covering the entire iron piece, finally obscuring it. The murky, red-brown rust turned darker and darker until the iron could no longer be seen."
