Fast and Snow by Lei Pingyang ~ 雷平阳 《快和慢》 with English Translations

作品原文

雷平阳 《快和慢》

只有贩毒的人是快的
在这儿,其他都很慢
最慢的是怒江
只有吸毒的人是快的
在这儿,其他都很慢
最慢的是苍山

只有死亡是快的
在这儿,其他都很慢
最慢的是活着
在这儿,只有我的心是快的
其他都很慢,最慢的
是我的那些不能直呼其名的
死去的乡亲,或他们还醒着的坟

 

 

作品译文

Fast and Snow
Lei Pingyang

Only the drug dealers are fast
In this place, everything else is slow
Slowest of all is the Nu River
Only the drug addicts are fast
In this place, everything else is slow
Slowest of all are hazy green mountains

Only death is fast
In this place, everything else is slow
Slowest of all is being alive
In this place, only my heart is fast
Everything else is slow, and slowest of all
Are the dead from my village
Who I can’t call by name, and their still-waking graves
