Cui Yuwei 20#–sounds

sounds

I like the night

every sound

disappearing in the day

returns

outside my door, someone folds

his umbrella before

ascending the stairs

my neighbour’s doorbell

rings now and then

wild cries of cats

a scratch at windows

the freezer is a continual hum

I pour some herbal tea

from the plastic bottle

the clock ticks bedside

I bend down

and feel phlegm rolling

beyond the roof

stars and plants

grow in silence

lying on my side

I hear one of my breasts

press tenderly

against the other

声音

我喜欢夜晚,

因为在白天消失的每个声音

都回来了。

门外,有人把伞折起

爬上楼梯。

邻居家的门铃

有时响起。

猫的狂叫刮过窗玻璃。

冰箱嗡嗡不断。

我倒了一些凉茶,它们汩汩地

从塑料瓶里流出。

闹钟在床边嘀嗒。

我俯下身,感到她的嗓子里

有痰。

屋顶外,星星和植物

静悄悄地长。

我侧躺下来,听见

一个乳房轻轻搭在

另一个上面。
