To Be Word

So,
in the word I have no age,
no more nor less,
neither skin nor open bone,
no folds or wrinkles,
no height or smallness,
no depth or surface,
nothing of vastness or narrowness,
even less wound or marrow
that resent the firmament.
I am just a glimpse, a gasp,
a breath, hardly a hint
about what will never be said
nor thought.

(Translated by Roxana Peramás)

成為詞語

那時,
我在詞語中沒有年齡,
不會多也不會少,
沒皮膚也沒有裂開的骨頭,
沒褶皺也沒皺紋,
不高也不矮,
不深也不淺,
不寬也不窄,
更沒有使天空
不舒服的傷病和頭疼。
我只是一個苗頭,一絲氣息,
一口氣,不過是
從未說出且從未想過之事
初露的端倪。
