DAISY IN SPRINGTIME
 
by Mowo Er
 
 
 
Who knows if the Milky Way has seasons
 
and their stars tend to stray off in the spring
 
to cascade on Earth.
 
Is that why she encounters a small cosmic force
 
when catching Line 10
 
at Chastity Gate Tube Station*?
 
Holding a bunch of daisies she just bought,
 
next to a friend who has the flashier peonies,
 
side by side they stand on the escalator.
 
Side by side too when they were school girls
 
some twenty years ago.
 
Their bicycles gently glided over the horizon 
 
as wildflowers spread around their wide skirts.
 
Nothing captured their heart like Italy then,
 
a web radiating out from the Mediterranean Sea,
 
but now, Lancôme is on the billboard,
 
a pair of red lips—oh, what curvature, how irresistible—
 
as if urging her to break away from old bondages.
 
Of course, the names Daisy, Aster, or Marguerite de Valois
 
evoke more than the names of the seasons.
 
At the tube station,
 
their newly awakened bodies
 
wait for the carriages to come to a stop.
 
Maybe this time the right door will open,
 
and "Open Seseme”—it will unlock a secret world for them.
 
 
 
Note: *Anzhenmen Tube Station
