诗人节

夏宇

诗人节
唯一不想做的事
就是写诗
头发该剪了
厚衣服该收箱了
要好好写一封信
想一想到底要不要结婚
最好能睡个午觉
席子是一种薄荷的凉
或者是不是该生一个小孩
屋子里有一种气味
玉兰花、杏仁
L. COHEN
混合吉他:
「你的敌人睡著了
而他的女人醒著....」
他会帮我吃完饺子皮
以及咸鸭蛋的蛋白
他抽烟的样子很好看
他喜欢讲笑话
但应该还有更好的理由
善男子及善女人
我不应该再掉眼泪了
整个地球
已经有十分之七是海水
而且炉里的水开了
先沏一杯茶
他来电话
「嘿我们来做点灿烂的事吧。」

可口
容易消化
他的嘴唇
他说的话
但是水开了
得先沏一杯茶
「有了埃及尼罗红鱼
今生今世宁为女人」
那只是广告
而且我必须先洗一个澡
总而言之
诗显得太奢侈了
而且
有点无聊

Poet’s Day (1)

On Poet’s Day
the one thing I don’t want to do
is write poetry
My hair needs cutting
I need to put away my winter clothes
I want to work on writing a letter
and give some thought as to whether or not I really want to get married
Better yet, I could take a mid-day nap
The rush mat is cool like peppermint
Or should I have children?
The room has a particular odor
magnolias, apricots
L. Cohen
blends with his guitar:
“Your enemy is sleeping
But his woman is awake…”
He can help me finish eating these dumpling wrappers
and the whites of these salted duck eggs
He looks really good smoking a cigarette
He likes to tell jokes
But there have to be better reasons than those
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen
I shouldn’t shed any more tears over it
The globe
is already 70 percent covered in seawater
Plus, the water in the kettle is boiling
First I’ll brew a cup of tea
He phones:
“Hey, let’s do something exciting!”
Soft
pleasing to the palate
easily digested
his lips
the words he says
But the water is boiling
and first I have to brew a cup of tea
“To have red snapper from the Egyptian Nile
I’d rather be a woman in this life”
It’s just a commercial
and besides I have to take a bath first
In short
poetry seems frivolous
and besides
it’s kind of boring

(1) Poet’s Day is celebrated in Taiwan on the fifth day of the fifth month in the lunar calendar,
the supposed day on which the great poet Qu Yuan (343?–278 B.C.) drowned himself.
