when a dragonfly hit the window

lili han

a car passed the road
accelerated the speed of air around
its speed broke the flight rhythm of a dragonfly
it flapped hurriedly its wings
but its head hit against the windscreen
after all, the car’s speed was too much
the insect struggled for a moment
yelling
bem-me-quer
mal-me-quer
wish me well
wish me ill

             —

a moment’s thought
picks up the speed and power of the car
 
then these let it take off again
let the car pass
going on dizzy
as if in a wonderful dance
