窗外

Outside the Window

只有在火车上,在漫长旅途的疲倦中, 你才能发现, 除了火车偶尔的鸣叫,这深冬里一直不曾断绝的 另外一些声音:窗外,大地旋转如同一张 密纹唱片。 脸贴着冰凉的玻璃,仔细听: 群山缓慢、磅礴的低音; 大雁几乎静止的、贴着灰色云层的高音; 旷野深处,一个农民:他弯着腰, 像落在唱片上的 一粒灰尘:一种微弱到几乎不会被听见的声音。

 

Only in the fatigue of a long train journey will you find the depths of winter not cut off from other voices: Out of the window, the earth rotates like a phonograph record and the train occasionally chirps. Face pressed to the cold glass, you listen carefully: Mountains roar in a slow, majestic bass; Geese almost stationary overhead, clinging to the treble of gray clouds; Deep in the wild, a farmer bends like a grain of dust fallen on the record with a voice so weak it's almost not heard.

古钟

An Ancient Bell

它悬垂,静止, 对所有流逝都不再关心。 我以手指轻扣,能听见 微小的声音在铁里挣扎。 长久的沉默,使苦痛变得迟缓, ——它并没有起身。 只在遭到重击时, 它才遽然醒来。 撞钟的,那是咬紧牙关的人。 铁在沸腾,痛苦,化作灿烂之光, 木槌在声浪中寻找万物的胸口。

 

Hanging quietly static it no longer regards the passage of time. I can hear the slightest sound of struggling within the iron as I lightly flick it with my fingers, but it does not get up as its pain has been dulled from long silence. It wakens suddenly when struck by a man clenching his teeth. Its iron boils, and its pain transforms into brilliant light. The big wooden mallet seeks the heart of all things in the clamor of its sound.

砧板上的鱼

A Fish on the Chopping Board

你全部的痛苦构成一条 砧板上的鱼:嘴巴 张了又张,呼喊在那里形成一个 喑哑黑洞,许多词急速旋转着 在其中消失。

 

All your pain is a fish on the chopping board: its mouth gaping and gaping, shouting until it forms a hoarse, black hole where so many words swirl and then disappear.
