Yearning

Free me from these tremors that awaken me in the night

when my only company is the shimmering call of the owl

in the trees below my room. 136 more words

【諸事輕聲響】不急歸還

拿回出借許久的東西,心裡竟覺得不踏實。天上掉下了禮物,不費吹灰之力。從意料之外的人手上,接過預期之外的物品,卻沒有得到一句好心情。

淨是細碎的小東西。用環保袋裝著,提在手上,輕盈得像一團季節性的空氣,放回早先的櫃櫥裡,擺著擺著,便在日子裡掉了隊。作為一個合情合理的現代人,收在這裡那裡的物件畢竟還是太多了,多數小物僅僅在最初相遇的幾秒鐘認識了形體,腦內留下一組印記,其後即使偶爾想起,往往也只是在印象的型錄裡翻看,大抵不會為了添增觸覺上的感應,費盡工夫從箱底翻出來。

提著一個袋子晃呀晃呀,紅燈路口停下腳步,忍不住朝內探看幾眼。早已不記得袋中居民的來歷,彷彿偶然走在城市的街道上,抬頭仰望大型廣告看板,驚見舊日同學那樣,有種熟悉而陌生的感覺。袋中居民都是些極其老實的住客,不懂得開口多言,任由米白的袋運載著,幾番易手,在人與人之間浪遊之後,也許沾染了不同的氣味,也許目睹了許多場合,最終又繞回了同一雙手。

物是踅回來了,人卻走得遠了。說了再見之後,跨過斑馬線,經過高架橋底,轟隆巨響終究蓋過車河另一側微弱的話音。橋底下轉身,看著人和夥伴的討論有了結果,轉了個彎,朝著共同決定的方向,穩穩前行。舊日的帳上再多槓掉一筆,遲早結清整本債權,遲早兩不相欠。帳目從來沒有留下紙本,但是心裡清楚得很,遲早都要揮霍盡了所有始末,遲早用完最後一個見面的理由。

年輕的日子若早知如此,實在不該過於客氣有禮,不該那麼擅長收拾。也許應該學習探訪深林的童話主角,隨身攜帶一把種子沿途播撒,標記清楚了歸程的路徑,就知道有另外一百種方式能夠迷航。早在出發的當下先種妥因果,等在渾沌鬧騰得夠了再來回收。等到故事書都翻爛了,字跡模糊得不再容易誦讀了,還有幾個堪用的藉口,約定一個沒有大風大雨的無聊節日,在那棵纖瘦的草莓樹下碰頭。

啊,錯了,草莓不是長在樹上的。特殊回憶的場景已經用得一字不剩了,往後只得依日常的規則來走。

The Return

There is no tender way to say
our years apart were bedbugs
crawling along our skin
the further apart we moved
and crawled these barefoot floors… 71 more words
