只有一盏小灯留着
这个新橄榄球感觉沉重
我们的投球也棘手
就像兄弟们的交谈
几句交流之后
他们偶尔互相看一眼,
信任渐增,
传球接球
感觉自然而标准。
逐渐地,
我们间隔移动的更远一些,
出去到田野里,
我们之间的距离
充满了黑暗。

他引领我,
向高处击出完美的螺旋式
进入夜空。我的眼睛
发现了这只球洁白的蕾丝。
我对着他的剪影
发出一自然深传
回抛
也不能看见,
然而这只球
落在我手里,
好像我们设置了一个
只有我们兄弟知道的密码

Only a little light remains.
The new football feels heavy
and our throws are awkward
like the conversation of brothers
who see each other occasionally.
After a few exchanges,
confidence grows,
the passing and catching
feels natural and good.
Gradually, we move farther apart,
out in the field,
the space between us
filling with darkness.

He leads me,
lofting perfect spirals
into the night. My eyes
find the clean white laces of the ball.
I let fly a deep pass
to his silhouette.
The return throw
cannot be seen,
yet the ball
falls into my hands, as if
we have established a code
that only brothers know.
