Poetry - 诗: Chen Yuhong - Metaphor - 之十四• 隱

Posted by ricardo marcenaro | Posted in | Posted on 7:43




Metaphor


you try to piece together
a thousand machine-cut, polished
pieces of moon
jigsaw
the moon's in the middle
slightly to the left, like a heart

the rim of the heart is cloudy
concealing needles of starlight that pierce the darkness
(walking barefoot across them
would definitely hurt)
these clouds, nebulae
this chaos you know
is delight, part of the game
a necessary confusion
you try to piece together the round of the moon
         (why is the moon out of shape
         cracked
         won't fit together?)

the moon says things were like this to begin with -
scattered
a thousand pieces of moon cluttering the bed
you are trapped in the moon
in your own
chaotic imagery


之十四• 隱


你試圖拼接那
切割準確、光滑的
一千片月亮
拼圖
月亮位於拼圖中央而
偏左,彷彿心臟

心臟的周邊多雲
針尖細的星光暗中穿刺
(如果赤足走過
必定會感覺疼痛吧)
這些雲、星團
這些混沌你知道
是趣味、是遊戲的過程
必要的困惑
你試圖拼接月亮的圓
(為甚麼月亮變形了
裂了
湊不齊了?)

月亮的事情原本
這樣,零碎
一千片月亮圍堵床邊
你被困在月亮
在自己的
錯亂意象裡
