田海燕:十二月的最后几天

◎西思翎、田海燕



十二月的最后几天

奥密克戎和呼吸机
噢,妈妈
你没法适应呼吸机
你一次再一次拿掉它
夜幕来临——遥远地
让我们,你和我,一起度过夜晚
时钟比任何时候都慢
我看着你安详的睡眠
缓慢的时间几乎静止,
黎明时分,妈妈你将自由呼吸吧?

几乎是十二月最后的日子
病房里的监视器突然
改变了它痛苦的模式
显示为---5点40分
你的脉搏停止,悄悄地
终了——一个夜晚,一个年头
一个母亲

想念是多么强烈
你说——你想念你的妈妈
你说——你想念我的爸爸
35年前离去的

一张1964年的照片,父母,
迂合十年
我们祈望——在雷声骤雨里——
遇见彼此的双眼
——雷雨——
你向我的和
我向你的告别

The Last Days of December

Omicron and ventilator
O Mamma
You cannot adapt to a ventilator
You take it off once twice
The night has come – from far
Let’s, you and me, spend the night together
More slowly than ever ticks the clock
I watch your peaceful sleep
Slow time stands still – almost,
At dawn, Mamma, will you breathe freely?

Almost the last day of December,
The monitor in the ward suddenly
Changes its painful pattern
Shows – it was 5:40 –
The cessation of your pulse, quietly,
The end – of the night, of the year
Of a mother

Missing is so severe
Missing – you said – your mother
My father – you said –
35 years from here

A photo from 1964, parents,
Ten years of marriage
We seek – in the storm –
To meet each other’s eyes
– The thundering rain –
Your farewell to me and
Mine to you

想你的滋味


在紫丁香的光里
在香草的泪水里
在甜梨和睡莲的露珠
散发的清香里

在紫色薰衣草和粉红葡萄柚的汁水里
在石榴的烛火里
妈妈,你可在
我朦胧的眼睛里

2023.1.25


The taste of missing you

In the lilac light
In vanilla tears
In between the fragrances of
sweet pears and the dew of water lilies

In the juice of purple lavender and pink grapefruit
In the pomegranate candle light
Are you, Mamma, in my
hazy eyes
