鹦鹉

Попугай

我是来自安提耳群岛的一只鹦鹉
我生活在僧人四四方方的修道屋。
我的周围是文件、地球仪和蒸溜瓶,
是一个老头的咳嗽声和钟表的滴哒声。

念咒的时刻人声汇成一股股旋风
眼睛闪烁如宝剑的锋刃,
恐惧和勇气使我振起羽翅
要和猫头鹰的幽灵奋力抗争……

随便!可这位穿金色袈裟的好色之徒
未必会在这间沮丧的穹顶之下
对牌戏和女人妄加猜测。

我梦见寂静的海湾里有一艘小船,
我怀想着太阳……总归徒然
我力求忘却:秘密总不好看。

Yes, I come from another country, / To your world I can never belong. / Tinkling guitars cannot please me, / I want a wild desolate song. / / I do not read my verses in drawing-rooms / To black-coats and dresses like shrouds. / I read my verses to dragons, / To the waterfalls and to...

Jaguar

Giraffe

Today I see your gaze is especially sad, / And your hands embracing your knees, especially thin. / Listen: far, far away on Lake Chad* / A slender giraffe is grazing. / / Bestowed with the luxury of harmonious grace, / Its skin is decorated in patterns, so magical / That only the shad...

Lake Chad

On mysterious Lake Chad / Among the ancient baobabs / Guided by majestic Arabs / The carved-out feluccas scud / Among the trees along the banks / And from foothills spread with green, / To terrible gods, the maidens chant, / Priestesses with ebony skin. / / I was the wife of a mig...

The Tale of the Kings

"We are the splendid and strong, / Youthful kings, who glide, / Like clouds high in the sky, / Above the mirage of the lands. / / With eternal songs and dances / We erect a new temple. / Let us be drunk with the purple / That surely will stream from its windows. / / A window to...

Masquerade

In barren halls and secluded corridors / Today merry maskers were amassing, / Today in parlors, variegated colors / Like mad whirlwinds, swept through, dancing. / / They snaked about beneath dragons and moons, / Chinese vases were tossed among them, / Torches flamed and lutes strings ...
