Yi Sha 《幸运兒》
LUCKY DOG

At Burlington Airport,
security personnel gave me a sign
made out of plastic
with a sentence in English,
something like
“You are today’s one and only
control-exempt traveler.“
At first I was shocked
then I was ecstatic
held it high in the air
showing my status.
After security,
went to the bathroom,
did my business,
washed my hands;
looked up
into the mirror,
examined myself for a long time.
”Oh, that security person,
they must have second sight,
goddammit, you tried all your life,
they’ll never take you for a bad egg!”

《幸运儿》

伊沙

在伯灵顿国际机场
安检人员发给我
一张硬塑料做的牌子
上面的英语大意是:
“你是伯灵顿机场
今日唯一免检的乘客……”
起初我大惑不解
后来则心花怒放
高举此牌
大摇大摆
过了安检门
来到洗手间
解了手
洗了手
抬起头
照镜子
仔细端详自己好半天
“哦,这位安检官
真不是吃素的呀
真他妈好眼力啊
小子,你用半生努力
还是装不像一颗坏蛋”

Yi Sha 《乡愁》
HOMESICK

My sister’s husband
picks me up at Phoenix airport.
Hardly says anything,
drives us into the city,
to a Sichuan restaurant.
Walking in,
it’s just like in China.
Customers mostly
black hair, yellow skin;
boss is from Chengdu.
Comes out himself,
greeting us with a smile,
all polite.
Only later when he’s alone
he is cursing and swearing,
pure Sichuan dirty language.
I am astonished.
“This is normal,
he is just homesick”,
says my brother in law.

《乡愁》

伊沙

我的妹夫
在凤凰城机场
接上我
二话不说
将车子端直开到
城里的一家川菜馆
步入餐馆
恍若回到中国
顾客几乎都是
黑头发黄面孔
老板是成都人
亲自出面
招呼我们
笑吟吟
很客气
只是当他独处时
便骂骂咧咧
满口四川粗话
我大惑不解
妹夫说:“没什么
他这是想家了”
