Another translation for Hongying's poem

which lies behind her new novel 'the green platye'
ST:
我怎么能看见?
我的未来,地图上的折叠之处
你轻轻用手指
触摸我那些伤心处

胜过性的芬芳,好象是第一
在我与你之间
仿佛最后一刻,灯火滑行
之途多余的享受

摘自 虹影 《绿袖子》

TT:
In what way
that I can see
My future,
beside the shade of
the map or,
When you touched me softly with
your finger on
my painful skin

It exceeds the fragrance of
the best sex I had,
with you
Only compares to

the joy left from
the last twinkling of
the light

I like the last line best… can't translate it at all…. the previous version is in one of my old entry


ha, Fahrenheit 911

Bowling for columbine didn't make much impression on my mind cos I think Elephant is the perfect narration of the tragedy. But I definitely like Fahrenheit 911 better… hmmm…. perhaps seeing it in cinema helped as well. When does the world become so evil? Since Bush came into power? Or only since recently when I start to learn the world in more perspectives?
Micheal Moore is a genius, he knows the art of convicing. However all the activists are ambitious; all the ambitioous are dangerous. People will die anyway, no matter how much we were touched and burst into tears during the film. I m an incurable pessimist, what can i say? I simply can't figure out a better way of living than to accept what we've been living now.
Hmmm… probably again, the side effect of writing essay. Staying up too late, reading too much… but I saw some pictures of a guy looks like my dreamlover in a more beautiful face… good looking guys are good solace for stress :)
