向阳--约瑟夫.米勒

给我带来你林中静默的湖泊
你收获了谷物的田野

有某位有钱人的马在附近吃草,
它珠光莹莹的眼睛,它乱糟糟的马鬃。

带来你十一月下旬的雨,
你飓风来临时的胶合板和肌肉车

桥下做爱的声音,
你令人烦恼的模糊的星星。

她的头发在你的嘴里,她的呼吸
柔声的口哨,一只雏鸟

在这儿,然后飞走了,
玫瑰种植在门廊旁边

在黎明中缓缓地变黑。
没有什么东西尝起来堪比

沙砾和鸡蛋,吃着法国烤面包
欣赏着新雪

纷纷扬扬地洒到紫薇树的树枝上,
之下冰冻的玉兰树叶卡塔响。

这是松焦油南方冬天的星期日
灰色的天空像久远的绸缎

覆盖着道路和雾蒙蒙的树林
壶中煮着糖化醪威士忌

林肯的幽灵蹲坐在奥克伍德公墓里
弯腰俯身,数着死去的部下。

地球绕太阳走一圈需要一年
那是一个科学真理

在这个战争输输赢赢的世界上
我仍然只是一位陌生人

虽然一磅棉花的重量
等同于一磅的肌腱或骨头

殡仪馆外面的落叶里
可能有一条铜头蛇

有时候布鲁斯音乐的呻吟像一次祈祷
有时它吐出一句咒语

即使你看不见所有的伤疤
你也能讲出是否受过伤痛
Bring me your silent lake in the woods
and your field of harvested grain

with some rich man's horse pastured nearby,
its eyes pearlescent, its tangled mane.

Bring your late November rain,
your hurricane plywood and muscle car

the sounds of lovemaking under the bridge,
your troublesome blurry stars.

Her hair's in your mouth, her breath
a soft whistle, a baby bird

here and then gone, the roses
planted next to the porch

slowly turning black in the dawn.
Nothing tastes better than grits

and eggs, eating French toast
and watching new snow

dusting the crepe myrtle branches,
frozen magnolia leaves clattering below.

It's a winter Sunday in the pine-tar South
and the gray sky like distant satin

covers the roads and the smoky woods
where mash whiskey cooks in a kettle

and Lincoln's ghost squats in Oakwood Cemetery
bent down, counting the Confederate dead.

It's a scientific fact that it takes a year
for the earth to go around the sun

and I'm still a stranger in this world
of the battle lost and the battle won

though a pound of cotton weighs the same
as a pound of tendon or bone

and there might be a copperhead in the leaves
outside the funeral home

and sometimes the blues moans like a prayer
and sometimes it spits out a curse

and even if you can't see all the scars
you can tell if something hurts.
