【翻譯】Jessica Cappelluti :Inspiration, My Pet

**和詩人朋友共同創作的企劃



<Inspiration, My Pet>  by Jessica Cappelluti

Wishin' I could take up residence
In the place where
inspiration springs.
Want to chase it down,
capture and cage,
make it my pet,
my slave.
Gimme gimme gimme
more more more.
I need the high
of creating,
of making something
from nothing,
sprouting truth
from a void.
I need it
on a daily basis
like an I.V. drip
every other minute
I want to grab it
and keep it
and have it believe I am its one true
owner
I'd keep it tied and
tethered
and I'd never
let it out
for fear
it may not return, becoming either
forgetful or
resentful or
deciding to share its love with another
Alas,
it is a fragile, timid thing and
it must be nurtured,
whispered to in the darkness of a solitary room:
"Come here, my muse..."
And you have to be willing to wait forever
'Cuz it knows better.
What are your intentions?
do you seek fame, 
a legend for your name?
Do you aim
to abuse its power
to suck from it
every last morsel
of divinity and sanctity?
Will you hurt it, harm it?
Tarnish and taint it all in the name of
a little poetry
you can put your name on?
If so, you might as well walk away.
'Cuz if you want a true, unbridled, pure, transcendent form
of all that bounty inspiration has to offer
You've gotta give it room to breathe and
You can't be an overbearing parent,
a jealous lover
possessive owner
It would be futile.
'Cuz it's universal and it belongs to everyone
and anyone
wise enough
to allow it
to be wild
and unhoused
by greedy hands
So I'll let go
and stop chasing,
put away my cages and collars
and instead implore it
to merely
notice me.


<靈感,我的寵物>  by Jessica Cappelluti

多希望我可以移居存在於某處
而在那裏
靈感蓬勃茁壯。
渴望追逐狩獵它,
將它捕獲並牢籠,
豢養它成為我的寵物,
我的禁臠。
給我 給我 給我
更多 更多 更多。
我需要那高潮
來自創作,
來自構造事物由
虛無之中,
來自萌發真實由
空洞之中。
我需要它
日日夜夜
如同靜脈注射
滴落每分每秒
我想要緊握著它
保守並維護著它
使役它信仰我乃它唯一絕對的
主人
我將它綑縛與
系鍊
且我將永遠不
釋放它
為了恐懼
它可能再不歸來,變得
或許健忘疏忽
或許憤怒憎怨
甚或決定將它的愛戀分享與他者

這如此脆弱,膽怯的小東西
它必須被養育灌溉,
在孤孑的暗房中被輕聲悄語
「到這兒來,我的繆思......」
且你必須樂於接受永恆的等待
因它總是明白得更加透徹。
你的意圖為何?
你是否追求名望,
一個聲顯赫卓的傳奇?
你是否目標在
濫用它的力量
將其啃噬吮吸
直到消耗殆盡它最後一分一毫
的神性和聖潔?
你將傷損它,殘害它嗎?
腐蝕與玷汙它的所有
以微弱的詩歌之名
好讓你能夠鑲嵌自己的稱號?
如果這是你所想像的一切,那麼還是退卻離開吧。
乃若你希冀的是一個真實、無羈、純粹、卓越的
形貌
來自那靈感所能奉獻的豐饒
你必須予它可供呼吸的空間
你不能身為蠻橫專制的家長,
亦或善妒的伴侶
獨佔欲的擁有者
那樣一來一切將僅僅徒勞。
因它放諸四海皆準而它屬於復歸於每個人
任何人
足夠的智慧
去允許它
狂野不馴
脫出容檻於
貪婪的雙手
所以我將使它自由
並且停止追逐,
收起那些牢籠與項圈
取而代之地我求懇它
只是僅僅
找尋我。注意到我。
