Silver Bridge


You remember seeing the Danforth bridge— strung with threads— an angel harp with you inside it like an astounded moth in a spider's web, or a bead in a dream catcher. You travel inside this threaded instrument on your way to violin lessons like you might be Jonah inspecting the whale's intercostals, or Noah's offspring revisiting the ribs of the arc. You ponder the workmanship of this half-mile of elaborate lines, taut on the frets of the bridge, and recall a Buddhist poem about a musician who spent his life stringing and un-stringing his lute, But never played. And you realize that this weave of silver filaments, this enticing spun silk glinting in the September sunlight Is a trap, a cage, a publicly-funded skein To prevent you from leaping to your death.


你记得看见丹福思桥—— 被银线牵引着—— 一个天使将你用竖琴围住 像一只在蜘蛛网里 被震惊的飞蛾, 或一粒珠子在梦的捕获者手里。 你在这丝线密绕的乐器里穿行 去往你的小提琴课路上 好像你会如约拿 检查鲸鱼的肋骨间隙, 或挪亚的后代 重新掂量方舟的梁骨。 你凝思这半英里 精密丝线的工艺, 绷紧在桥梁的音柱上, 想起一首禅诗 关于一个音乐家度过了一生 串起琵琶的琴弦又一一解开, 却从来没有弹过。 你意识到这银色的锦绣编织, 这样诱人的绢丝 在九月阳光下闪闪发光 是一个陷阱,一只牢笼,一袭由公家资助的绞纱 为了防止你 跃向死亡。
