NIGHT ON OCTOBER THE FOURTEENTH

2016

 

grass turned to mud after rain

the sound of feet wading through the mud

startled a wild rabbit from five meters away

to ten meters away

 

when I was looking at the rabbit with a tilted head

the rabbit was looking at me with a tilted head

mine from a little more of curiosity

the rabbit’s from a little more of alertness

 

each time when its near full moon

I wonder if something should happen

the house next to the road

walked out a man in nice suit and tie

with a bag full of trash

 

“Two by two, let’s go!”

a line of guys ran past me

“Thank god I didn’t.”

I thought to myself

because I was holding my pee in

and I wondered if anyone would see

if I peed discreetly in a corner

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

 

when the night grows late

I, too, want to grow tenderer

the sensitive heart of mine

becomes ten times even more so

 

when passing under a blooming tree

I, too, will raise my head and take a sniff

I, too, remember that on the same road

I once popped a flaming red berry with my hand

(its translucent juice slid down long and thin like a string of snot)

and once seen a whole tree of birds flapping away

whoosh, whoosh

 

shuffling shadows of trees and

passing sound of wind

depending on the mood

can either be cries or songs

 

until my heart, flustered

I walked out of the shadow into the moon light fast

and heard bugs buzzing on treetops once again

I looked back and

a long way of walking, stopping, writing

was a mere few blocks of distance

that’s when I realized

that ever since you were gone

I no longer dared to walk for far

 

十月十四日夜

2016

 

下过雨后的草地变成了泥

走过时的声响

将五米外的野兔

惊到了十米

 

我在歪头看着它的时候

它也在歪头看着我

我的好奇多一些

它的警惕多一些

 

每次快满月了的时候

总想着是不是该发生点什么了呢?

路边的别墅里

走出一个西装革履的男人

提着满满一袋的垃圾

 

“Two by two, let’s go!”

跑走一溜的男生

“幸好没有啊”

我心里想着

因为每次憋尿的时候

总会认真思索

找个角落解决

到底会不会被发现

 

---------------------------------------------

 

夜晚了

也想要变得温柔

敏感的心

放大了十倍地敏感

 

经过开了花的树

也会仰头深吸

也记得同样的路

我曾捏爆过一颗火红的浆果

(透明的汁液黏黏长长地滴溜下来像鼻涕一样)

见过整树的鸟腾空飞起

呼啦啦,呼啦啦

 

婆娑的树影和呼啸的风声

凭心情

可以是悲鸣也可以是歌声

 

直到心有点慌

走出树影走入月光

又听到那虫鸣树梢

一路走走停停写写

竟不过几个街区

才发现自从你不在身旁

我早已不敢走远
