保护你的快乐之事。
               来自一位英国圣公会教徒的祷告

她们步行,甚至有点跌跌撞撞,我们之中
有赞美,或保护他们的理由,即使铅弹落到
铅板上的声音,即使那样,对于他们来说,
也是音乐。因为他们带给笑声短暂的失忆症。
在其他人之中说着,说着快乐,
他们的手放子陌生人的肩膀上
和彼此的肩膀上。因为你不必告诉他们向光走去。
因为如果有两块猪排
他们会把比较好的一块奉给你。
因为他们会给你他们的背做支撑。
因为当他们中的两人在一起时
他们的光亮充满了房间
因为你不必告诉他们向光走去。
That they walk, even stumble, among us is reason
to praise them, or protect them—even the sound
of a lead slug dropped on a lead plate, even that, for them,
is music. Because they bring laughter’s
brief amnesia. Because they stand,
talking, taking pleasure in others,
with their hands on the shoulders of strangers
and the shoulders of each other.
Because you don’t have to tell them to walk toward the light.
Because if there are two pork chops
they will serve you the better one.
Because they will give you the crutch off their backs.
Because when there are two of them together
their shining fills the room.
Because you don’t have to tell them to walk toward the light.
