Fan Jinghua: Anthill

    Anthill

The small crater, with many insects crawling into and out of it.
So lightly they move, faster
Than can be expected from their tiny bodies.
Do they have feet except the feelers?
See how delicate are their glittering waists
That even the design in the post-dieting era may pirate the concept.

The two trains of dark brown float soundlessly
Like the headwater mirrors in the western plateau under the sunset,
Where ancient cattle graze ancient grasses in ancient winds.
Beholders are but trespassers. They go there
And see things; they may regard their act as witness,
But they are nothing, too short-lived to be trusted.

They only go there, that is all, and they do not come there.
The only difference they can hope to make is to destroy.

    蚁冢
       赠HX
那小小的火山口,那么多小爬虫爬进爬出。
轻捷的蠕动,那速度无法
期待于它们的小身体。
除了触角,它们也有脚吗?
看它们细腰的流线如波纹精细的闪忽,
甚至后节食时代的设计也要山寨它的概念。

两列深棕色的长车无声地漂着,
犹如河源头的镜水蜿蜒在西部高原的夕阳下,
那儿有古代的牛羊在古代的风中啃噬古代的草。
旁观都属非法入侵。他们去了那儿,
看到物体;他们可以将自己的行为视为见证,
不过他们什么都不是,太短命而不足信。

他们只是去了那儿,如此而已,绝非来到那儿。
毁掉那儿,是他们能够带去的惟一改变。
