Street Bus Poem by Haiqing Hua

Street Bus



街车
Street bus

就像这辆缓慢行进的街车
Like this slowly driven street bus
小心的预防措施
Careful precaution
一只脚永远也不离开刹车踏板
One foot never leave the brake pedal
针对一切的可能
Aiming at all the possibilities
完全陷于绝望的恐惧中
Completely sunken in the fear of desperation

四个小时的培训课程
Four hour training class
为社区准备了一支服务兵团
Prepared a corps for the community
街车成为归程借以代步的工具
Street bus become a tool returning home
秋末之寒风骤起
A sudden gust of cold wind by autumn end
微不足道的工资成为笑谈
Minimum wage become a gossip of laugh
课堂上只有戏谑和玩世不恭
All the teasing and cynicism in the class
教官和讲师也毫无办法
Even the teachers and training officers can do nothing about it

街车安静地行驶
Street bus quietly driving through
从Sherbourne 街拐至湖湾至Jarvis再转回来
From Sherbourne to Lake Shore to Jarvis turning back
一路五颜六色的老房子略过去
Passing all the colorful old houses along the roads
沿途不断地在各个交叉路口停下来
Stopped at all the intersections along the roads
人群涌入声音嘈杂
People rushed in so much noises
二十年之前就经历过的情形
The same experience twenty years ago

时间就像这辆街车
Time just likes this street bus
总体红色的基调
Fundamentally red base color
寓意难解的象征
Metaphor that hardly understood
二十年跨越两个大洋的过程
The twenty years processes over two oceans
不断滚动旋转的车轮
Continuously rolling wheels
碾压过去同样的街道
Rolling on the same street road

危险竟也就是因了这些
Danger even also due to those
不明显的改变
Unobvious changes
喋喋不休的四个小时的废话
Ceaseless talking nonsense over four hours
如同骤起之秋末寒风
As this sudden gust of autumn end cold wind
被这辆缓慢行进的街车
By this slowly driven street bus
迎头撞碎
Crushed head on
