English

 

IN THE BULRUSH

 

 

Cut a cane that once

grew in the river.

Lean on it. Weigh

 

a stone in your hands

and put it down again.

Watch it moss over.

 

Strike the stone

to see if it’s thinking

of water.

 

中文

 

蒲草丛中

 

 

削一根手杖

从那原本在河里的生物。

倚靠它。掂量

 

手中一块石头

再把它放下。

目睹它长满青苔。

 

击打石头

看它是否记得

水。
