Asymptote‘s issue 30 is here, and with it my translation of “Promise” 诺言, by Duo Duo 多多.
I love aroused rooms inviting us to lie down as their roof
I love lying on my side, casting a shadow for a straight line
casting a string of villages for a voluptuous body
I want the mole nearest your lip
to know, this is my promise
