2月14日,和父亲去医院 / February 14, Going to the Hospital with My Father

Chinese

我们吃了早餐  吃了药 / 和污染的空气做斗争
我们早起  在医院等待 / 辨认着耳科大夫的脚步声
我们沉默着  并排坐着 / 把沉默存进空气里
一天  两天  我们背着手 / 在缓慢的电梯里站着
围巾是新的  冰和垃圾也是新的 / 我们互相听  一直到听不见

English Translation

We ate breakfast     took medicine
fought the polluted air

We got up early     waited at the hospital
identifying the footsteps of the ear doctor

We were silent      sitting side by side
depositing silence into the air

One day     two days     hands behind our backs
standing on the slow-moving elevator

The scarf is new    the ice and garbage are also new
we listen to each other      until we can hear nothing
