女儿14岁时:圣诞舞会--玛丽亚.莫兹奥提.吉兰

你脸上恐慌不安,你写了问题问他。
他到来时,你平静了,你的恐惧
骗不了人。你多么不像我啊。

舞会之后,
我看见你的幸福;他握着你的手。
虽然你们几乎一言不发,
我能读懂你身体洋溢着的信息

一切都很好。他吻别你道晚安,
他的身体移向你的身体,你的身体
回应。我害怕,捂住我的嘴
唯恐我这个害怕的妈妈

会脱口而出。“他不害羞。”你咯咯笑,
又成了一个小女孩了,但你告诉我
他在舞池里吻了你。“一次吗?”
我问。“不,很多次。”

我凌晨一点时
驶过风雨洗礼过的街道。
我咬住嘴唇咽回
我想说的长篇大论,知道我必须不
粉碎你宛如一只玻璃鸟儿脆弱的时刻,

你,此刻,处在楼梯的危险边缘。
而我,在地上,害怕。
Panic in your face, you write questions
to ask him. When he arrives,
you are serene, your fear
unbetrayed. How unlike me you are.

After the dance,
I see your happiness; he holds
your hand. Though you barely speak,
your body pulses messages I can read

all too well. He kisses you goodnight,
his body moving toward yours, and yours
responding. I am frightened, guard my
tongue for fear my mother will pop out

of my mouth. “He is not shy.” You giggle,
a little girl again, but you tell me he
kissed you on the dance floor. “Once?”
I ask. “No, a lot.”

We ride through the rain-shining 1 A.M.
streets. I bite back words which long
to be said, knowing I must not shatter your
moment, fragile as a spun-glass bird,

you, the moment, poised on the edge of
flight, and I, on the ground, afraid.
