药丸

她被汗湿的手上
那几颗黄色药丸旋晕了头
终致无法决定
是吞下它们
或让它们并吞
 
事实上她不知道
它们究竟是
那个没心肝的医生给她的药丸
或是昨天晚上
她在绝望中抓来的
天上那几颗星星
 
昨天晚上她一直告诉她的医生
她需要的是爱
不是药丸
但他只诡笑着站在那里
吃下这个,他说,明天早上
妳会觉得好过些
 
早上的房间更阴暗
更空,她能听到
自己的心跳
或者,是房间用它的几面墙
在敲击她的脑袋
 
而撒落在夜空上
那些黄色的药丸
越旋越快
如飞驰的星星

 

PILLS

William Marr

she became dizzy as her head swirled
with the yellow pills on her sweaty palm
and could not decide
whether to swallow them
or be swallowed by them

in fact she wondered if they were
the pills prescribed by her unfeeling doctor
or, in her desperation, the stars she grasped
from the sky last night

last night she kept telling her doctor
what she needed was love
not pills
but he just stood there with a cunning smile
take these, he said, you'll feel better
in the morning

in the morning the room grew even darker
and more empty, she could hear
echoes of her own heartbeats
or, were they heartbeats of the room
banging her head with all its walls

scattering in the night sky
the yellow pills swirled
faster and faster
like stars
