Up High in the Trees 

在树的高端

By Klara Brinkman


上一页



I liked to sit in the cabinet under the sink.

我喜欢在水槽下面的壁橱里坐着。


       Dad said, I don't understand why you hide under there.

       爸爸说,我不明白你为什么要藏在那底下。


       I hugged my knees tight to make myself smaller.

       我紧紧地抱住自己的膝盖,把自己缩的小小的。


       If you sit under there like that for too long, you’ll stop growing, Dad said.

       如果你在那下面坐太久,你会长不高的。爸爸说。


Stop it, Mother told him.

别说了,妈妈对他说。


       They got mad at each other then and I held very still.

       他们就相互生对方的气。我在原地一动不动地呆着。


       Under the sink was the dirty smell, like cooked carrots. It’s true that carrots grow down instead of up. I thought of growing down into the ground, deeper and deeper, and I knew then that the whole inside of the earth smelled like dirty carrots.

       水槽下面的气味很臭,像是煮熟了的胡萝卜。胡萝卜真的倒着长。我想像着朝地下不断的生长,越来越深,然后我知道整个土地都闻起来像脏萝卜。


       If he wants to hide, Mother said, let him hide.

       如果他想藏着,妈妈说,就让他藏着吧。


       Dad said, It’s not normal. Dad’s voice was loud and mean.

       爸爸说,这不正常。他的声音响亮又刻薄(尖锐?)。


       Why are you so worried about what’s normal? Mother asked. Her voice was louder now, too.

       你干嘛担心正常不正常?妈妈问。她也说的更大声了。


       Louise, Dad said and he put up both of his hands, like two stop signs.

       露易斯,爸爸说着两手交叉,做出停止标志的手势。


       You’re not worried about him, she yelled, you’re worried about what’s normal.

       你根本不担心他,她喊道,你只是在乎什么正常不正常。


       Just tell me why you’re so mad, will you? Dad asked.

       告诉我你为什么这么生气,好吗?爸爸问。


       I can’t, Mother said. I’m leaving, she said and then she left.

       我不能,妈妈说。我要走了,她说着就走了。
