Just Think Of It

Poem by Ravi Kopra (USA)


What you like today
may not like tomorrow
next week, next month
years later
even your husband
your wife you madly love

Just think of it

When my penny pinching
friend got old
really old, could hardly
wipe his ass
he once told me
Ravi, I want nothing
no gold, no women
no fame, no friends

Just a bed to sleep on
and three meals a day
to feed my tummy

Just think of it


好好想想吧

拉维•坎普拉 (美国) 诗
罗志海(中国) 译
English poem by Ravi Kopra (USA)
Translation by Luo Zhihai(China)


你今天喜欢什么
也许到明天
下个星期,下个月
年底也不喜欢
甚至你的丈夫
你的妻子你疯狂地爱

好好想想吧

当我小气的时候
朋友变老了
真的老了,几乎不能
擦屁股
他曾经告诉我
拉维,我什么都不想要
不要黄金,不要女人
不要名声,不要朋友

只要睡一张床
一天吃三顿饭
喂饱肚子

好好想想吧
