Who did I write last night? leaning
over this yellow pad, here, inside,
making blue chicken tracks: two
sets of blue footprints, tracking out
on a yellow ground, 71 more words

Jean Valentine in Chinese

假设有一分钟我们站在一起,

在布满电线的瓦斯车上:

假设我们在黑暗中。

这里温暖,干燥。

食物丰盛。

我们不用在躲藏中等待。

我们大都坐在有自己光线的房间里。

过来吧,带上你的东西:

我们也祈祷吧,为那些朋友们,

去年和前年死去的,今年将会消失的。

说出来吧,

像一群蜜蜂那样。
