暴雨中的公共汽车
一个空旷的站台
为了摆脱雨
我挤上了
不知将开向哪里的
公共汽车
它慌张地加速、转弯
驶上大桥
急于澄清自己
不是雨的一部分
但暴雨的影子
变成了盲人
弹奏这架水底的钢琴
弹奏乘客——新旧
不一的琴键
他们,会在车停时惊醒
偏离重力的平均律
BUS IN A STORM
To get away from the heavy rain
on the emptied platform,
I run and squeeze into
a bus
that’s going somewhere I have no idea of.
It speeds up, making a turn
across the bridge,
eager to prove that it’s got nothing to do
with the rain.
But the shadow of the stormy rain
has turned into a blind man
playing this underwater bus-piano,
striking the passengers—black and white keys
of various shapes,
and they (that is, we) will wake up
out of tune and tone
when the bus stops.
