Notes on this piece
after the eponymous poem by Bei Dao

The August Sleepwalker

the stone bell tolls on the seabed
its tolling stirs up the waves
it is August that tolls
there is no sun at high noon in August
a triangular sail swollen with milk
soars over a drifting corpse
it is August that soars
August apples tumble down the ridge
the lighthouse that died long ago
shines in the seamen’s gaze
it is August that shines
the August fair comes close on first frost
the stone bell tolls on the seabed
its tolling stirs up the waves
the August sleepwalker
has seen the sun in the night

Bei Dao
