继承物--斯蒂芬.邓恩

你不应该感到惊奇,那个你一直寻找
的地方,现在被赠给了,
携来一种确定无疑的失望。
给你,终于在里面了,看不见一位朋友。
唯一存在的快乐就是你自己带来的快乐,
你必须带的是多么少啊。
你的前窗外面是九重葛,
像园丁本人,带着一副想要
一再赞美的表情。暴露的木质横梁,
曾经是主要的吸引人之处,现在感觉矫饰,
更适合其他人而不是你
但现在是你的了,你怀疑
你因你悬挂的油画被认识,
你放到架子上的书,毋庸置疑
你需要谈谈壁纸
好似那不是你的过错。或许那就是
虚荣像一只滑稽的小狗一直跟随
着你的原因。你正想着有像这样的一座房子
你可以举办一场舞会,邀请一位像尼克.卡罗维的人
请他带着你梦中的女孩,或许他也乐意
裁定那夜的不确定性?
你想着有些虚构的人物
可能比那些可能永远成为真正朋友的人更好
几个星期了,现在你的梦一直
提供给你他们易碎的真理、
你也不知如何让它们栖居,
它可能花费另一笔巨款查出
为何不试试现在就安顿下来呢,
占据你的一席之地,然而受之有愧,
感到庆幸吗?为什么几乎不信任
每一个人呢,即使进入他自己的房子,
也是一位烦恼的宾客吗?
You shouldn’t be surprised that the place
you always sought, and now have been given,
carries with it a certain disappointment.
Here you are, finally inside, and not a friend
in sight. The only gaiety that exists
is the gaiety you’ve brought with you,
and how little you had to bring.
The bougainvillea outside your front window,
like the gardener himself, has the look
of something that wants constant praise.
And the exposed wooden beams,
once a main attraction, now feel pretentious,
fit for someone other than you.
But it’s yours now and you suspect
you’ll be known by the paintings you hang,
the books you shelve, and no doubt
your need to speak about the wallpaper
as if it weren’t your fault. Perhaps that’s why
wherever you go these days
vanity has followed you like a clownish dog.
You’re thinking that with a house like this
you should throw a big party and invite
a Nick Carraway and ask him to bring
your dream girl, and would he please also
referee the uncertainties of the night?
You’re thinking that some fictional
characters can be better friends
than real friends can ever be.
For weeks now your dreams have been
offering you their fractured truths.
You don’t know how to inhabit them yet,
and it might cost another fortune to find out.
Why not just try to settle in,
take your place, however undeserved,
among the fortunate? Why not trust
that almost everyone, even in
his own house, is a troubled guest?
