Loneliness

By Lian Huang
(黄楝 原诗 黄楝 英译)

The night-scene is wine

held in the glass of loneliness
U quaff with bravado
though a little listless
U r always talking like all the drunkards
saying: E'm not drunk ye...... t
with a mood indescribable and not expressible
roam rove ramble         unfettered and detached
Neon signs r too beautiful to mean anything
'n then they become much more beautiful
The pedestrians' eyes r as slippery
as the fishes in the springs
that U can catch not with your best efforts
like the singing sound from all directions
loneliness is sometimes misty and sometimes floody
besieging your heart
There r sacredness and mystery and awesomeness'
vaporized from the chorus of the gospel singers in a church
Loneliness is then the work
of a serious and stiff philosopher
stuffing your mind with mottled thoughts
'n    it is the serpent in Eden
seducing U to contemplation or wild fancies
form an invisible wall between U
and the crowd U r in
The faces bursting into our sights
r so deprived of any expressions
that this one is quite similar to that one
U act as if U don't care
That's because U have too much to care about
So U can hardly bear to care
U    feel lonely 'cause U need
a    great deal of friendship and love
U feel lonely     'cause U have the habit of feeling that way
That's why I asked for your excusing me
for my writing the word loneliness so repeatedly
I'm talking about loneliness that's the reason
Actually it resembles the air
the more overflowing and ubiquitous it may occur
the fewer possibilities for U to feel
It's something that exists
It's crucial if U have the habit
'cause habits r like shadows
which r not easily spotted unless
U deliberately stand under strong light
This truth is simple, yeah
'n many things r equally simple
Let's pick up the world for example
When U r familiar with the phenomena
in the world U'll have the idea that it's as simple as naught
'n of course the world won't thus vanish
But your so-called vacillation and melancholy
                solitude and agony
will certainly va-ni-sh
Relishlessness is one relish of life
if you gladly take a careful taste
Probably it tastes better than relish
Don't assume U r cheating yourself
If U get a discounted fathom
U'll understand that U r just
cheating life itself
U smile
'n pose yourself like a venerable elder
'n say don't in such a wild way contemplate
'n a poem shouldn't be written too long
so I put down my pen 'n then close the curtain of my eyes
            sink my eyebrow to relaxation
    sit erect in meditation
get ushered in Dhyana
'n start again to sense the void
BECAUSE
whatever life is or is not
it needs to be unfettered and detached
