《异质繁殖》,宣纸水墨

HÉTÉROGÈNE

Perhaps a tree
Or a hollow where love once summoned
A stubborn char of feigned remembrance
For shadowing flight upon
Failing precipice
Rooted less to high ground than old
Perhaps a man
Or a pillar of found element
Stationed past what cannot be retained
Where the world remarks itself
& all that one is
Courses with the ancestry of atoms
Lost
To the ravages of wonder
Found
In a moment of pure reflection
To give
Of it all to the ultimate

异质繁殖

可能是一棵树
或某个凹谷,
爱曾在那里呼唤
烧焦的木头固执地假装记忆
浮游的影子
错过断崖
不屑高处,扎根在老地方
可能是一个人
或找回物堆起的柱子
兀自立于稍闪即逝的背后
世界自说自在。
留不住的就消去
而所有的,
都追随原子家系的祖先
在奇迹的灾难里
遗失
在纯粹的沉思中
获得
以便把全部
给予终极

(斯蒂文 S. Vessels, 美国诗人,2003)
