Vanishing Cream
In memory of Amy Winehouse

雪花膏
回忆Amy Winehouse

At Wevill's house one desert night as I lay reading at the window screen, a moth flew into my lit candle and fell burning like a torch song. By the time I snuffed the flame. wondering if any art was worth a life—even a dumb insect's— only the wings' eyes remained. I watched other moths, less talented, dance and beat themselves helpless against the metal mesh, their flutters the sound of an old film projector running silent movies, unaccompanied, the movements of faces overplayed, each pancaked to reflect a light shine through them to the future. My grandmother would remove her face each night before she went to sleep with a cream that made her ghostly, letting the day vanish as if a miracle— the same way I thought nature sang when I woke at dawn to uneasy steps, my face still pressed against the screen and a doe's eyes staring back at me.

 

在Wevill家一个寂寞之夜 当我置身窗屏旁阅读, 一只飞蛾飞进我点着的蜡烛 跌落燃烧犹如一把火炬之歌。 等到我掐灭火焰, 寻思着是否有任何艺术值得 付出生命,—哪怕是一只暗哑的虫子— 它现在只余下翅膀上的眼睛。 我看到其他的飞蛾,天分要低些, 飞舞和无助地拍打着翅膀, 撞击着金属网,它们的扑棱声 好似旧式的影片放映机 运转着无声影片,没有伴奏地, 它们面部的动作被夸大, 每一个脂粉饰抹着反射光 通透着它们直到以后。 每天晚上在睡觉之前, 我的祖母会用雪花膏卸 妆,雪花膏让她象鬼一样, 而一天就这样奇迹般消失— 同样奇妙地,清晨我在不安的步声中 醒来,我以为大自然在歌唱, 那时我的脸依然紧压着窗屏, 而一只母鹿正瞪视着我。
