  A Loaded Gun - 艾小柯 - 流浪者的乡愁

  I was walking down the First Street
  Listening to Billy Collins making love to Emily Dickinson
  When he undressed her gently in the sound waves
  I too saw a shadow cast on the orchid below
  Not even a poetry lover I am
  But still I couldn’t help but sigh with her
  When I pretended that it was my bow, my feathers, and my plank

  No, I do not have epilepsy
  My brain is perfectly normal just like everybody else, damn it!
  I do lead a reclusive life, however
  But that’s only because I was involuntarily laid off in this miserable financial weather

  No, I do not know Emily Dickinson
  Even though I often pretend to be a feminist like she really was
  Yes I do constantly struggle with life and love
  But as an anonymous, nobody really cares
  Maybe I will also make myself known if I could learn to write like her
  But talent is such a fragile thing
  You can only be blessed with but never acquire

  So there, I just have to sigh with her
  Yes, life is indeed a loaded gun
  Hers kills with a yellow eye
  Mine weeps in secrets I can’t describe
  I wish I had a poet’s hands and eyes
  But flesh is such that even dissected on a doctor’s board
  The hidden gun is still hidden, invisible
  And certainly not transferable

  So I decided to give up my pathetic habit of daydreaming
  And focus on the twenty resumes I had in my leather bag
  No, I do not have epilepsy
  My brain is perfectly normal just like everybody else, thank God!

  I had to hurry to catch my next job interview
  Surely they wouldn't ask how Billy Collins took off Emily Dickinson’s corset
  But when the loaded gun took a shot in such bitter summer wind
  I almost couldn’t help but sit down for a minute
  For just one minute
  For that’s how long a tear would need
  To silently reach the dry ground
