William Marr (Fei Ma)


Evening Smokestack

在摇摇欲灭的 灯火前 猛吸烟斗的 老头 只想再吐 一个 完整的 烟圈


frantically puffs his pipe under the dying sky trying in vain to make another ring of smoke


The Clear Sky Of May

五月的晴空 没有云 没有鸟 没有风 筝 拉著他跑他跳他飞 的线突然在他手里断了 气 四顾无人的旷野里 俯视著僵卧脚下 的 影 子 他开始感到太阳刺骨的 冷度


in the clear sky of May there were no clouds no birds no wind the kite string that pulled him run jump and fly suddenly broke on the wilderness looked at his own shadow lying stiff and motionless under his feet he suddenly felt the penetrating cold of the sun
