“Devil’s Trick”, poem by 蔡澤民 Tzemin Ition Tsai, Taiwan

DEVIL'S-TRICK 2

守舊的方

框住不斷繞行的一生

再怎麼花心思

沒走出

規劃完美的跑道

終究成了個數時間的老頭兒

惡魔把戲

我擅長挖你心坎上頭的窟窿

而且住在裏頭

不時出動

抓回一些你的壞心眼

用細細麻麻的縫線  封口

醃成下酒小菜

味兒

十足辛辣

喜歡

Devil’s Trick

I’m good at digging the hole in your heart

And live in it

From time to time out

I recaptured some of your bad thoughts

Sealed with thin hemp sutures

Pickled as a cold dish to go with the wine

That taste

Full of spicy

Like it

Trucco del diavolo

Sono bravo a scavare un foro nel tuo cuore

E viverci dentro

Di tanto in tanto uscirne

Ho riconquistato alcuni dei tuoi cattivi pensieri

Li ho sigillati con suture di canapa sottile

Li ho messi in  salamoia come piatto freddo che va  con il vino

Quel gusto

Pieno di spezie

Mi piace

(translated by Lidia Chiarelli)
