昨夜,在罗利市,我又成了一个孩子--柯瑞.麦斯勒

昨夜,在罗利市
我变成了一个孩子。
多瑞奇男孩子们在屋顶上
我的妹妹正等在大富翁游戏棋盘后面
是夏天,高温像
一种分离型人格,
狗们四处游荡
篱笆或狗链也挡不住
我能够看见我的未来
如何在我面前铺展开来
像一张单调的地势图
我只想再次融入进去,找到
我完好的家庭,淘气鬼仍然活着
我的父亲,威严低坐着太多躺椅里,
他旁边的一个烟灰缸里充满了香烟
我想要说,
父亲,求你,别吸烟了,别吸了,
让这一切都不是梦。让这一切
都是真的,我又成了一个孩子
在罗利市,在任何人都曾看见过的
再也不会看见的
明媚无比的阳光下。
Last night I was a child again
in Raleigh. And the
Dorich boys were on the roof
and my sister was
waiting behind the Monopoly
board and it was summer
and the heat was like
a separate personality and
dogs wandered here and
there unhindered by fences or
leashes and I could see
how my future spread out be-
fore me like a relief map
without relief and I only wanted
to fit in again, to find
my family intact, Scamp still
alive and my father,
regal in his recliner, an
ashtray full of cigarettes
near him and I wanted to say,
Father, stop now, stop please,
let this not be dream. Let it
be true that I am a child again
in Raleigh, under the
finest sun anyone had ever seen,
never to be seen again.
