Up High in the Trees 

在树的高端

By Klara Brinkman


上一页


Downstairs in the library, the books reach all the way to the celling. You have to climb up a ladder to touch the highest ones. I don’t like how there are so many books. I don’t know which one to pick out and read so I don’t read any of them. I put my face up close to the pages and they smell peppery, like how the wood floor smells at home.

图书馆楼下的书都摆到天花板去了。你得爬上梯子去拿最上面的书。我不喜欢这么多的书。我不知道应该选哪一本读所以我一本都不读。我把脸贴近这些书页,他们闻起来像胡椒,好像家里地板的味道。


       I walked until I find the right spot. At the very top, one shelf has a long empty space. I climb up the ladder to the empty space and make myself fit. I have to lie on my side because when I lie on my back, it feels like I’m going to fall off.

       我一直走着直到走到正确的位置。在一个书架的顶端有一个空出来的地方。我顺着梯子爬上去,并挤进去。我得侧面躺着。因为如果我背靠着躺,就会感觉要掉下去。


       Leo said not to hide.

       雷欧说不要藏起来。


       In the quiet you can tell when you are doing something wrong, because the quiet gets more quiet. I try to hold very still. I think about how nobody’s seeing me and nobody’s hearing me and then I can pretend to be not here at all. But the shelf is hard and I can feel my body against the shelf and I know I am here.

       在安静的地方你感觉到自己做错了什么事,因为气氛会越来越安静。我试着维持着一动不动(的姿势)。我想像谁都看不见我、听不见我,然后我就可以假装我其实根本不在那里。但是书架是硬的,我可以感觉到自己的身体顶着书架,我也知道自己在这里。


       Leo said not to hide, so I climb down the ladder.

       雷欧说不要藏起来,所以我爬上了梯子。


       To make the time go by, I look at all the reading posters on the wall. President George Bush reading, and Bill and Ted, from the movie Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, both reading and trying to make their faces look smart. My favorite is the one with the kittens climbing around the pile of books. You can tell the kitten poster is old because it had yellow, turned-up corners and rips fixed with tape.

       为了让时间快点过去,我看了墙上所有的阅读海报。总统乔治布什书目?,电影《彼尔和泰德的精彩探险》里的彼尔与泰德,两张海报都试图把他们的脸变的看起来更聪明。我最喜欢的是小猫咪爬上书堆的那张。你可以看出来那张小猫咪的海报很旧了,页角翘起来和脱落的地方用胶带纸贴着。


       Upstairs, I go stand by Leo. He looks at me and nods, but doesn’t say anything because he’s in the middle of thinking about something.

       在楼上,我走过去站在雷欧的旁边。他看我一眼点了点头,但是什么都没说。因为他正在想事情。
