Watering the Horse


Twenty-seven below, starkness before dawn; I scrunch through snow toward an impassive shape sacred in her night-long confessional. A fine layer of unmelted powder quilts the long hairs that insulate her back. I remove a glove and sew my fingers beneath the fur, her skin comforting as toast. Were I better equipped, perhaps bearing grain she might condescend to snort, but I check only water. She watches—should I stumble I would quickly stiffen like these rails which keep my world at length, words useless against the cold as wet flannel. Here, she is composer writing on the vapor of her breath. Note: The English version of Watering the Horse first appeared in the journal Diner (2001).


黎明前是那样的严寒,华氏零下27度, 我嘎吱嘎吱踏着积雪,走向一个冷静的身影- 在她通宵的忏悔里显得很神圣。薄薄一层 未融化的雪粒罩在她背部隔热的棕毛上。 我脱下手套,手指伸进她柔软的毛里, 她的皮肤摸起来好像刚烤好的热面包。 如果我准备得好一些,也许带着食料来,对此 她可能不屑一顾地喷鼻息,但我只查看了饮水。 她凝望着我---倘若我跌倒的话,我会很快 僵硬得像这些围起来的栏杆,这最终支撑 我的世界的栏杆,话语像湿绒布无法御寒。 在这里,她是用她鼻息的热气写作的作者。
