辛波絲卡《一見鍾情》

辛波絲卡‧一見鍾情 Love at First Sight

  They're both convinced

  that a sudden passion joined them.

  Such certainty is beautiful,

  but uncertainty is more beautiful still

他們兩人都相信
是一股突發的熱情讓他倆交會。
這樣的篤定是美麗的,
但變化無常更是美麗。

Since they'd never met before, they're sure

  that there'd been nothing between them.

  But what's the word from the streets, staircases, hallways—

  perhaps they've passed each other a million times?


既然從未見過面,所以他們確定
彼此並無任何瓜葛。
但是聽聽自街道、樓梯、走廊傳出的話語——
他倆或許擦肩而過一百萬次了吧?

I want to ask them

  if they don't remember—

  a moment face to face

  in some revolving door? 

  perhaps a "sorry" muttered in a crowd?

  a curt "wrong number" caught in the receiver?

我想問他們
是否記不得了——
在旋轉門
面對面那一刻?
或者在人群中喃喃說出的「對不起」?
或者在聽筒截獲的唐突的「打錯了」?

They'd be amazed to hear

  that Chance has been toying with them

  now for years.

  Not quite ready yet

  to become their Destiny,

  it pushed them close, drove them apart,

  it barred their path,

  stifling a laugh,

  and then leaped aside.


然而我早知他們的答案。
是的,他們記不得了。
他們會感到詫異,倘若得知
緣分已玩弄他們
多年。

尚未完全做好
成為他們命運的準備,
緣分將他們推近,驅離,
憋住笑聲
阻擋他們的去路,
然後閃到一邊。

There were signs and signals,

  even if they couldn't read them yet.

  Perhaps three years ago

  or just last Tuesday

  a certain leaf fluttered

  from one shoulder to another?

  Something was dropped and then picked up.


有一些跡象和信號存在,
即使他們尚無法解讀。
也許在三年前
或者就在上個星期二
有某片葉子飄舞於
肩與肩之間?

Who knows, maybe the ball that vanished

  into childhood's thicket?

  There were doorknobs and doorbells

  where one touch had covered another

  beforehand.

Suitcases checked and standing side by side.


有東西掉了又撿了起來?
天曉得,也許是那個
消失於童年灌木叢中的球?

還有事前已被觸摸
層層覆蓋的
門把和門鈴。
檢查完畢後並排放置的手提箱。

One night, perhaps, the same dream,

  grown hazy by morning.

  Every beginning

  is only a sequel, after all,

  and the book of events

  is always open halfway through.


有一晚,也許同樣的夢,
到了早晨變得模糊。

每個開始
畢竟都只是續篇,
而充滿情節的書本
總是從一半開始看起。
