HEIGHT OF THE WORLD – 江湖海

HEIGHT OF THE WORLD

To look for a person with backbone,
take the bones apart,
then one by one join them together.
The kneecaps cannot bend,
the whole spine cannot be bent,
nor can it be soft.
Not one bone can be bent or soft.
The sole of the foot stands on the ground,
then the bones rise up towards the sky.
When they are joined for the final height,
that is the height of the world.
I haven’t found it yet,
can’t take myself apart after all.

Translated by MW, October 2019

世界的高度
江湖海

寻找一个有骨气的人
把骨头拆了
一根一根接起来
膝骨不能弯
整条脊椎骨不能弯
也不能软
哪一根都不能弯不能软
脚掌骨立在地上
一根一根地往天上接
接完的高度
就是世界的高度
我没找到他
我还不能把自己拆了
