眼睛 (双语)
 
眼睛

恋人之目:

黑而且美。

十一月,

狮子座的流星雨。

                 ──纪弦〈恋人之目〉


他在空白的稿纸上

写下了一个大大的标题:

眼睛


她的眼睛

那双使他想起

聊斋志异里

迷倒过多少个白面书生的

眼睛


几个世纪过去了

那双迷人的

想对他说什麽的眼睛

便这样在稿纸上同他痴痴对视

狐狸糊涂


今天早上他就着晨光

在床上翻读《纪弦精品》

猛然省悟

原来所有黑而且美

属於恋人们的眼睛

都像沙滩上的贝壳

老早被这位住在海边

每天起个大早的爱美的诗人

捡去分门别类统计归纳

然後用寥寥的十八个大字

加上几个标点

向专利局提出登记

注册商标去了

EYES

Lovers’ eyes:

black and beautiful.

November,

Leo’s meteor shower.

                  ---Lovers’ Eyes  by Ji Xian
       
last night he wrote on a blank sheet of paper a big big title:


EYES

her eyes

reminded him of those charming eyes

that infatuated so many fair-complexioned young scholars

in ancient bizarre ghost stories

 

several centuries had since passed

and those enchanting eyes

that should have something to say to him

now just stared at him in a stupor

on the blank sheet

 

this morning as he was reading

the Collected Best Poems by Ji Xian

it suddenly dawned on him

that those lovers’ eyes

black and beautiful

must have all been gathered

like shells on the beach

by the beauty-loving early-rising poet who lives near the ocean


after passionate and extensive studies

he obtained a patent on the writing of eyes

with a poem of nine words

and some punctuation marks
