有许多以悲伤为主题的诗歌。
为什么在悲痛这坨粪上再堆放一首?

曾经总是指望奇迹。我们记得,
为时已晚,比面包屑更小的悲伤的森林。

你每夜复述着一个谎言沉沉入睡:
明天我要终结它,我和悲伤之间的风流韵事。

一个女人又开始唱了。这次她又是谁?
管她呢。她的声音磨着悲伤的磨石。

给我们何种选择:坚持下去直到死亡
或让它们消失,设法征服我们的悲伤。
.
我对着我闪亮的新苹果手机大声喊出我的名字。
屏幕上,苹果手机的语音助理为我把它拼出:悲伤。
There are too many poems on the subject of sorrow.
Why pile one more on this dung heap of sorrow?

Once upon a time always promises wonder. We remember,
too late, the breadcrumb-less woods of sorrow.

You fall asleep nightly rehearsing a lie:
Tomorrow I’ll end it, my love affair with sorrow.

A woman is singing again. Who is she this time?
No matter. Her voice grinds the whetstone of sorrow.

What a choice we’re given: to hold on to the dead
or let them vanish to try to vanquish our sorrow.

I speak my name out loud into my shiny new iPhone.
On the screen, Siri spells it out for me: Sorrow.
