也是一种演出(汉英)

也是一种演出

灰茫茫的雪地上
一棵光秃秃的树
摆着生硬笨拙的姿势
一动不动地站在那里

没有花叶的妆扮
没有蝉鸣鸟语的伴奏
没有白云蓝天的布景
独自在荒谬暗淡的舞台上
苦苦
等待果陀

作为仅有观众的我
不禁为这严肃认真的演出
热烈鼓掌叫好
并且答应自己
绝不在幕落灯熄之前
急急离座出场


IT TOO IS A PERFORMANCE

on the grey field of snow
a barren tree
in a stiff, awkward posture
motionlessly stands there

no decoration of leaves or fruits
no accompaniment of cicadas or birds
no scenery setting of white clouds or blue sky
it appears on the darkened obscure stage alone
waiting for Godot

as the only audience
applaud wildly for the austere performance
and promise myself not to leave
before the curtains fall completely
and all the lights are turned off
