Visiting the River After Having Moved Away


The treads of my boot soles hard pack block print ideograms in the river mud. Which will outlast which: the melancholy of returning here or the pattern made from it?


我靴子底坚硬的后跟花纹 在河泥上印了一串串象形符号。 谁比谁更持久: 回到这里的忧伤 还是用它做的图案?

Dinner Guests


When wanting to walk, I circle the apple trees behind our house until suddenly done digging at gopher holes the dogs flop down, crumbs of earth clinging to their paws like cake. I might accelerate or change direction as I round a lap at the dilapidated barn. My repetitions have worn a path in the grass and now I follow the path I unconsciously made. I remind myself to look up at the mountain. The blossoms took me by surprise at first although the buds didn’t flower all at once but arrived like dinner guests, in lulls and bursts, each bearing similarly beribboned gifts the way guests used to, and now flocks of them are already drifting off in flurried gusts the way we tended to, when we were guests.


想散步时,我绕着房子后面的苹果树转 直到突然止步 狗儿们在地鼠洞里挖洞,扑通一声摔倒, 土屑像蛋糕一样粘在它们的爪子上。 在破旧的谷仓绕了一圈, 我可能会加速或改变方向。 反反复复,我在草地上踩出一条路 现在又不知不觉沿着这条路走。 我提醒自己抬眼望山 乍看这些花儿,让我惊奇 虽然花蕾没有一下子全部绽放 却像晚餐的客人,在平静和迸发中接踵而至, 每个人带着有丝带的礼物 用宾客惯用的方式,现在他们成群结队 在一阵飓风中飘走 当我们是客人时,我们往往也这样。
