A Brief History of Việt Nam

A Brief History of Việt Nam
by brian phó
Her vast dynasties
battle a millennium of
futility.
938 sovereignty.
Great Khan gambles
on land and sea.
Stakes are raised.
Bamboo.
Fierce dragon, if
fate had feathers clipped
your fatherland would utter
a different cry.
Colonization, romanization, quốc ngữ.
感 恩 (merci)
mercy adieu.
Điện Biên Phủ.
JFK, LBJ, Tricky Dick,
see above.
The thirst
is he who tires first.
