我的Mekong—问江

《问江 》

身越远,回乡的向心力越强
我相信这个定律
曾经多次坐在梅里的对面,凝望着她
她似乎没变
她化下的泪水悄悄融入滔滔的澜沧江里
流到我的故乡
小时候大哥们教会我
将汽水、啤酒埋入江边的沙床上
变成冰镇的饮品
江边那一大片大片的芦苇林
是我们躲着谈情说爱的纱帐
如今的年轻人早已不需要什么纱帐
他们可以在光天化日之下拥抱和亲吻
江两岸长出了大片大片没有枝丫的森林
像吃了韭菜一样疯长
大象与老怪手的对决
输赢你肯定知道
街边卖水果和糯米饭的老眯涛
跟所有人都说着憋足的傣式普通话
澜沧江水依然清凉
可早没人再会把啤酒埋入沙滩去冰镇

River ?
The further you go, the stronger force holds you back home
I know this course
For many times, I sit in front of Meili Mountain
It appears to me that nothing has changed her
Her tears gently trickle into Lancang River which leads to my hometown
When I was a child, my elder pals showed me to cool down soft drinks and beers by burying them in the sand on the bank
Masses of reeds near the river were where we courted on the sly
Nowadays young couples need not hide in the reeds.
They are allowed to hug and kiss in public
On the banks there develop vast of concrete forests
They are growing wildly like Chinese chives
A showdown between elephants and steel cranes
You would definitely know how it ends
Elderly Dai women who sell fruits and steamed sticky rice along the streets
are trying to communicate with people in heavily accented Mandarin
Lancang is still cool , however no one no longer bury beers in the sand
