《绝望》

 

我开车穿过德里的街道
热得发昏,病病恹恹
我在威尼斯的运河边散步
握着一个我不认识的男人的手
那时你在露天里睡觉
这感觉就像是疯狂
我在西格里亚的山上
向获救之处攀登
我亲吻妹妹的嘴唇
在威尔特郡的山边
那时你正倾听着风中之声
这感觉就像是没有了明天
我潜伏在巴塞罗那的后街
与婊子们相盘桓
我为维瑟格勒的城堡而动心
被另一个女人的丈夫勾引
那时你在准备食物时切伤了自己
这感觉就像是你几乎在那里
我在莎梦皇宫里发呆
把速可眠错当成泰诺
我在奥斯汀的人行道上流着汗
睡在陌生人的床上
那时你正在快速地穿越大陆旅行
这感觉就像是绝望
我对泰姬陵大理石一样盲目
寻找着救赎
我坐在多伦多的桌边
试图弄清楚是什么击中了我


Desperation
Jill Battson


I am driving through the streets of Delhi
in a heated stunned sickness
I am walking beside canals in Venice
holding the hand of a man I don't know
when you fall asleep in the open air
it feels like madness
I am climbing the hill at Sigriya
to the point of salvation
I am kissing my sister's lips
on a hillside in Wiltshire
when you listen to the voice in the wind
it feels like there is no tomorrow
I am lurking in back streets of Barcelona
hanging with the whores
I am heartbeaten at the castle of Visegrád
seduced by a another woman's husband
when you cut yourself preparing food
it feels like you are almost there
I am trancing in the palace at Samode
mistaking seconal for tylenol
I am sweating on the pavement in Austin
sleeping in a stranger's bed
when you travel rapid continents
it feels like desperation
I am marble blind at the Taj Mahal
looking for redemption
I am sitting at my desk in Toronto
trying to figure out what hit me.


《培育花园的36种理由》

 

因为我想把手插到黑色的沃土里
因为我想费劲地摆弄耙子,出汗
我想在出汗时尝尝盐味
我想在我的身体上嗅出艰苦工作的气味
我想要我的肌肉酸痛
然后再被柔和细雨所抚慰
因为我想要耕地成为开阔的画布
我想要准备好平坦土地的美
我想要手上诚实的老茧
因为我想感受粗糙沉睡的种子
从我的指缝翻滚着落进土里
我想用柔软沃土的毯子盖住它们
我想观察绿色嫩芽的诞生
当它们向着太阳挺进
因为我想躺在花园旁倾听植物生长
我想闻一闻雨后阳光中的大地
我想把幼苗培养成植物
用杆子和格子架撑住它们
我想在它们整个的青春期都和它们说话
因为我想观察鲜花被蜂蝶授粉
我想看见最早的果实
闻闻新鲜番茄上太阳的温暖
因为我想把芳香的罗勒属植物挤个满怀
我想用身体感受沉重的玉米秆
我想看见我的手被它们的叶绿素弄脏
我想观察植物们在升起的鲜红太阳中闪耀
在满月的银色中闪耀
因为我想倾听它们决定自己命运时的低语
我想收获我劳动的果实
我想欣赏每一棵蔬菜在我手中成型
用我的眼睛畅饮它们的美
因为我想感受它们在世界上独一无二的存在
我想用脸贴着它们感受它们的质感
我想知道当我烹饪它们的时候它们转眼就老了
清除了所有的杀虫剂和污染
当我用白色瓷器把它们端上来时
成熟,灿烂,准备就绪
我想知道你就在那里

 

36 reasons why I want to grow a garden
Jill Battson


Because I want to plunge my hands into dark rich soil
Because I want to sweat as I labour over the fork
I want to taste the salt as I sweat
I want to smell hard work on my body
I want my muscles to ache
and then be soothed by soft rain
Because I want the open canvas of tilled land
I want the beauty of level earth, prepared
I want honest calluses on my hands
Because I want to feel the rough sleeping seeds
tumble through my fingers into the ground
I want to smooth them over with a blanket of soft loam
I want to watch the birth of green shoots
as they push themselves towards the sun
Because I want to lie next to the garden listening to the plants grow
I want to smell the earth after rain and after sun
I want to nurture the seedlings into plants
support them with poles and trellises
I want to talk them through their adolescence
Because I want to watch flowers pollinated by bees and butterflies
I want to see the first fruit
smell the sun warmth of a fresh tomato
Because I want to crush aromatic basil plants in my arms
I want to feel the heavy stalks of corn against my body
I want to see my hands stained by the chlorophyll of their existence
I want to watch the plants shine in rising vermilion sun
and glow in the silver of a full moon
Because I want to listen to their chatter as they decide their destiny
I want to harvest the fruit of my labour
I want to relish each individual vegetable shape in my hands
drink their beauty with my eyes
Because I want to feel their unique presence in the world
I want to press them against my face to feel their textures
I want know that when I cook them they will be minutes old
clean of pesticides and pollution
and when I serve them
ripe, brilliant and ready on white china
I want to know that you'll be there
