Faced with Terrorism, Poetry Is Nothings’ Nothing

After being online for 24 hours, searching all of the search engines,
Trying all of the key words, in all the entangled web of the internet,
I found not the slightest trace of you.
After being online for 48 hours, like a cat on a hot tin roof,
Again and again, slaving over a steaming pan,
In order to better see you in your true colours, and to let you hear me crying,
I still found not the slightest trace of you.
After being online 72 hours, I, like a moth to a flame,
Again and again, trying to go beyond the illusory screen images
In order to show off my best dancing in front of you
And to let you see my final moment as I crash and burn.
I’ve searched the whole earth, following your clues
And from the labyrinthine depths of the internet,
I got a glimpse of your few, brief words —
Faced with terrorism, poetry is pale and powerless,
Faced with terrorism, poetry is nothing,
I’ve searched the whole universe, researching your origin and your end,
And at its extent, I got a glimpse of the original code you left behind —
Faced with terrorism, poetry is powerless’ powerlessness,
Faced with terrorism, poetry is nothings’ nothingness.

Selected from POETRY AGAINST TERROR’

苏菲汉译 国际选本 《反恐诗歌》

【中国】苏菲
《面对恐怖主义,诗歌是一无是处的是处》

我24小时挂在网上,我更换了所有搜索引擎
所有关键词,在互联网的夹缝里
我嗅见了你的一丝气息
我48小时挂在网上,像热锅上的蚂蚁
一次次试图,漫过这热气腾腾的油锅
好看清你的真面目,好让你听见我在哭泣
我72小时挂在网上,我飞蛾扑火
一次次试图,越过那幻象中的画屏
好在你面前展现,我最完美的舞姿
好让你看得见,我坠入火海,那永恒的瞬间
我寻遍了整个地球,追寻你的蛛丝马迹
从互联网的缝隙里,我窥见了你的只言片语——
面对恐怖主义,诗歌苍白无力
面对恐怖主义,诗歌一无是处
我寻遍了整个宇宙,探求你的缘起缘灭
在宇宙的裂缝里,我窥见了你残留的原代码——
面对恐怖主义,诗歌是无力的无力
面对恐怖主义,诗歌是一无是处的是处
