Lê Vĩnh Tài | THE SEA OF DREAMS (96)


By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translated by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm


– I need a boat for the sea

– a sea that you need, where is it?

– I don’t know

– don’t know where this sea is, so why would you need a boat?

– I saw the sea on a map, I touched it with my finger, a small dot, alone, the size of a grain of sand…

– just because you want a boat?

– yeah, feels like I’m missing something that I’ve never encountered…


– if this is your sea, then let me tell you a story about her, she’s beautiful beyond existence

– ah, so it turns out you’re a lovesick fool?

– if not, then what else is there to do?


my friend disappeared

I had to build the boat myself

both hands fiddling with the paddles
