A Fisherman


Ed Choi

One foot on the water, the other on the bank of river.
A fisherman toils to catch fishes being drown.
He is in touch with the water via the foot.
The other foot firmly planted on the bank
Keeps him from being washed down.
He pulls out dead fishes now and then.

Or, he would watch the world to pass by.
He looks on the mainstream gushing down
Into the mouth of Ocean. As the sun declines
Into the dusk, the moon chokes in the dense cloud.

Or, what else would he do?
On the wing of the night,
He wanders off onto the sphere of being.
He feels whole and
The world seems only a part of him.

The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web

Um pé na água, o outro no banco do rio.
Um pescador labuta para pegar os peixes submersos.
Ele está em contato com a água por seu pé.
O outro plantado firmemente no banco
Impede-o de ser molhado.
Ele tira peixes mortos de vez em quando.

Ou, ele poderia assistir o mundo passar.
Ele olha abaixo o popular borbotão
Na boca do Oceano. Como os declínios do sol
No crepúsculo, a lua asfixia na nuvem densa.

Ou, o que mais ele faria?
Na asa da noite,
Ele perde-se sobre a extenção do ser.
Ele sente-se inteiro e
O mundo parece só uma parte dele.
