134 轻伤的人,重伤的城市 轻伤的人过来了 他们的白色纱布像他们的脸 他们的伤痕比战争缝合得好 轻伤的人过来了 担着心爱的东西 没有断气的部分 脱掉军服 洗净全身 使用支票和信用卡 一个重伤的城市血气翻涌 脉搏和体温在起落 比战争快 比恐惧慢 重伤的城市 扔掉了假腿和绷带 现在它已流出绿色分泌物 它已提供石材的万能之能 一个轻伤的人 仰头 看那些美学上的建筑 六千颗炸弹砸下来 留下一个燃烧的军械所 六千颗弹着点 像六千只重伤之眼 匆忙地映照出 那几千个有夫之妇 有妇之夫 和未婚男女的脸庞 他们的身上全是硫磺,或者沥青 他们的脚下是拆掉的钢架 Changing Room(fintxt).indd 134 9/21/11 12:22 PM 135 Lightly Injured People, Gravely Wounded City Here they come, the lightly injured Their gauze as white as their faces Wounds sewn up better than the war’s Here they come, the lightly injured Carrying their prized possessions The parts that have not died They strip off their uniforms they wash themselves clean Paying by check and credit card The gravely wounded city seethes with energy Its pulse and temperature rise and fall Faster than war Slower than fear Casting off its bandages and artificial legs It has bled green fluid And offered the unyielding power of stone One of the lightly injured looks up At those monuments to aesthetics Six thousand bombs come pounding down Leaving an arms depot in flames Six thousand bomb craters Like six thousand gravely wounded eyes In a rush they illuminate the faces of Thousands of married women Married men unmarried men and women Bodies covered in sulphur or asphalt And at their feet, twisted metal Changing Room(fintxt).indd 135 9/21/11 12:22 PM 136 轻伤的人 从此 拿着一本重伤的地图 他们分头去寻找那些 新的器皿大楼 薄形,轻形和尖形 这个城市的脑袋 如今尖锐锋利地伸出去 既容易被砍掉 也吓退了好些伤口 Changing Room(fintxt).indd 136 9/21/11 12:22 PM 137 The lightly injured now set out Heavily wounded maps in hand They split up to search For the new vessels of tall buildings Forms thin and light and pointed The brain of this city Extends its spikes So easily hacked off But they’ve frightened away many wounds Changing Room(fintxt).indd 137 9/21/11 12:22 PM ...
