“Ready!” I insist, all set to type with one hand. In my other, I grip my cell and hit send as the 911 line starts ringing.

“准备好了!”我强调了一遍,一边用一只手敲着键盘设置着。另一边,我紧拽着手机,在911线响起之时迅速按下发送键。


Years ago, if you wanted to drive around and work with the homeless, all you needed was a van and some Lysol. These days, the state of Florida won’t let you pick up a soul unless you’re logged on to the statewide computer network that tracks who’s where. The better to see you with, my dear. And the better to see what diseases, medication, and psychological history you’re carrying around as well.

多年以前,如果你想要开着车乱逛然后跟无家可归者一起工作的话,只需一辆货车和来苏尔(一种消毒剂)就足够了。而这些天来,弗罗里达州不会允许你随便带走一个人除非先登录到洲域电脑网络上追踪是谁在那。亲爱的,这是为了更清楚地看到你是跟谁在一起。同时也是为了更清楚地看到有什么样的疾病、药物及心理历史,同时还有你随身携带了什么。


“Zero seven eight, zero five, one one two zero,” Roosevelt announces as I key in the man’s Social Security number.
“078051120”罗斯福说着,我一边输入那个男人的社会保障号码。

In my ear, the 911 line continues to ring.

在我的耳边,911线一直在响。


In the distance, refusing to wait, Roosevelt rips open the man’s shirt and starts applying pressure to his wound.

在远处,罗斯福等不下去了,他撕开了那个男人的衬衫,开始处理他的伤口。


And on-screen, I get my first look at his identity.

在屏幕上,我第一次看到了他的身份。

A swell of heat burns my chest, my throat. I can’t breathe. I open my mouth to call Roosevelt’s name, but my lips won’t move.

我胸腔里的温度急剧上升,我的喉咙,我不能呼吸了。我张开嘴叫罗斯福的名字,但是我的嘴唇根本动不了。


LLOYD RANDALL HARPER
劳埃德•兰达尔•哈珀
My father.

我的父亲。


“This is 911,” the operator announces in my ear. “What’s your emergency?”
“这里是911”话务员的声音在我的耳边响起。“您那有什么紧急情况?
