I thought it was a letter thrown on the porch. 只寫電郵和即時訊息的現代人,還寫的出這樣的詩嗎?

-

我以為看見一封信投在門廊

可那只是一片月光。

我從地板上拾了起來。

多輕呵,這月光的便箋,

而一切下垂,像鐵一樣彎曲,在那邊。

I thought it was a letter thrown on the porch.

It was only a piece of moonglow.

I picked the light up off the floor.

It was so light, that moonletter,

and everything sagged, like bent iron, over there.
