The Nest

有一个可以与你分享的巢,它自由转动着 我喂养的小鸟,从这里飞入世界 它们,盘旋在物像和人面之上,飞一飞 就在汉语中长出了一些晦涩的羽毛 有些鸟一定已受到了不小的惊吓 某些句子里有它们逃离的痕迹 这个世界的天空太低,大部分意念的小鸟 飞过大地,又回到巢中,归于寂然 更微小的鸟,停在我覆盖着睡眠的睫毛上 听白日梦中人们各奔东西的声音 有些鸟,一开始就飞在与世界相反的方向 一旦飞了,便在目光之外不再返还 这也是小鸟们关于飞的游戏 自由转动的巢,它把路过的光线聚集在内 又保持了庇护它自身的一些黑暗 我以这个巢,喂养每一只天命之鸟


I want to share with you a nest that turns freely The birds I feed fly into the world from here They circle above images, faces, and by a few whippings there grow new, obscure feathers in Chinese Some birdies are scared by what's going on leaving traces in my sentences while they flee The sky of the world is low, depressive, so most of the birds of my thought, after much flying return to the nest. There are tinier ones perching on my eyelids that are covered by sleep listening to the footsteps of those hustling by Some birds fly in directions away from the world and once took flight, never return to the horizon For the birds, this is a game about flying The freely turning nest gathers lights that pass and shelters some of the darkness therein It is with this nest I take care of every destined bird
