Poems By Thanh Ngo



I hear the same old story
About a girl who is
Just like me
She plays the naked mirror game
Every morning and
Every night
Counts the rolls
On her tummy
And she counts one two
Sitting there, she is talking to
The one that cares
While everyone else
Has found new prey to
Feed on
And at every dinner she counts
Peas, corns
And beans
Looking for substance
Besides blood,
Not to throw up.

Thanh Ngo is a 19 year old  student currently living in Sweden. Before coming to Sweden, she and her family lived in Hanoi where she attended the United Nations International school of Hanoi, from which she graduated last year.
