在海龟湾Mosquitoeshavearrivedwiththewarmnights,andourbedchamberistheirtheaterunderthestarsIhavebeenupanddownallnight,swingingatthemwithafacetoweldampenedatoneendtogiveitauthority夜里开始变得燥热蚊子如期而至这时的卧室便成了它们星空下的剧场。一晚上我都忙着用一头浸湿的毛巾赶蚊子翻来覆去怎么都睡不好。ThismorningIsufferfromthelightheadednessthatcomesfromnosleepasortofdrunkenness,verygoodforwritingbecauseallsenseofresponsibilityforwhatthewordssayisgone早上起来一夜没睡的缘故感觉轻飘飘的像是喝醉了。不过正适合写点东西平日里头脑清醒对文字和表达总是苛求现在在这种晕眩状态下那份责任感早已荡然无存想写什么就写什么。 Yesterdayeveningmywifeshowedupwithafewyardsofnetting,andtogetherwekneltandcoveredthefireplacewithanillusionveilItlookslikeabride昨天夜里妻子拿来几码纱网我们跪在地上一起用网把壁炉包了起来看上去就像个穿着婚纱的新娘(Oneofourmanytheoriesisthatmosquitoescomedownchimneys)(关于蚊子如何进到房间这个问题我们的一种解释是从烟囱下来的)。IboughtacoupleofadjustablescreensatthehardwarestoreonThirdAvenueandtheyareinplaceinthewindowsbutthewindowsashesinthisbuildingaresooldandirregularthatanymosquitoexceptonesufferingfromelephantiasis(象皮病象皮肿)hasnodifficultywalkingintotheroomthroughthespacebetweensash(窗格)andscreen我在第三大道的五金店里买了几块可调式网屏并把它们装在了窗户上。只是这间屋子的窗框都太老旧且形状不规则蚊子只要没得象皮病都能轻而易举地从窗框和纱窗之间的缝隙飞进来(Andthenthereistheevenlargeropeningbetweenuppersashandlowersashwhenthelowersashisraisedtoreceivethescreenaspacethathardlyeveroccurstoanapartmentdwellerbutmustoccurtoallmosquitoes)(当把下窗升起连接纱窗时上下窗之间的缺口就更大了当然居民很难爬进来可足以让蚊子蜂拥而入了)。Ialsoboughtaveryoldairconditioningmachinefortwentyfivedollars,agreatbargain,andIlikethismachineIthasalmostnoeffectontheatmosphereoftheroom,merelychippingtheedgeofftheheat,anditmakesaloudgrindingnoisereminiscentofthesubway,sothatIcansnapoffthelights,closemyeyes,holdingthedamptowelattheready,andimagine,withthefirststab,thatIamridingintheundergroundandbeingprickedbypinswieldedbyangrygirls我还花美元买了台十分老旧的空调确实算个便宜货了我很喜欢它。有了空调除了凉快了些许室内的情况并不多大改观。空调总是发出刺耳沉重的声响让我想起了地下铁。于是我关了灯闭上眼手举着湿毛巾整装待发。当第一只蚊子来咬我时我就想象自己是在地下道里开车一不小心轮胎被生气的女孩子撒在地上的大头针给扎破了。 AnothertheoryofmineabouttheTurtleBaymosquitoisthatheissweptintoone’sbedroomthroughtheairconditioner,ridingthecoolindraftasaneagleridesawarmupdraftItisafeebletheory,butamanhastoentertaintheoriesifheistowhileawaythehoursofsleeplessnessIwantedtobuysomeoldfashionedbugspray,andwenttothestoreforthatpurpose,butwhenIaskedtheclerkforaFlitgunandsomeFlit,hegavemeaqueerlook,asthoughwonderingwhereIhadbeenkeepingmyselfalltheseyears“Wegotsomethingalotstrongerthanthat,”hesaid,producingacanofstuffthatcontainedchlordaneandseveralotherunmentionablechemicalsItoldhimIcouldn’tuseitbecauseIwashypersensitivetochlordane“Getsmerightintheliver,”Isaid,throwingawildglanceathim我被海龟湾的蚊子围攻的另一个可能性解释就是蚊子是通过空调进入房间的。它们借着空调内部流入室内的冷气流像是老鹰驾着上升的暖气流飞向高空。这一说法显然不可信但一个人要想打发掉失眠的分分秒秒只能这样自我安慰了。我之前也想过买一些老式的杀虫剂还为此奔到商场去可当我问营业员要一支喷雾器和一些喷剂时他不解地看了我一眼似乎在纳闷这些年我是躲在哪个犄角旮旯度过的。“我们这里有比那更好用的”他说随即拿出一罐含氯丹和其他一些不知名的化学物的东西。我告诉他我对氯丹过敏因而不能用“肝脏受不了”我说瞥了他一眼。 Themorningsarethepleasantesttimesintheapartment,exhaustionhavingsetin,thesatedmosquitoesatrestonceilingandwalls,sleepingitoff,theroomaswirloftorturedbedclothesandabandonedgarments,thevinesintheirfullleafinessfilteringthehardlightofday,theairconditionersilentatlast,likethemosquitoesFromThirdAvenuecomesthesoundofthemadbuildersAmericancicadas,outinthenoondaysunInthegardenthesparrowchantsadesultorysecondcourtship,asubduedpassion,inkeepingwiththegreatheat,loveinsummertime,relaxedandlanguorousIshallmissthisapartmentwhenitisgonewearequittingitcomefall,toturnourselvesouttopastureEverysooftenImakeanattempttosimplifymylife,burningmybooksbehindme,sellingtheoccasionalchair,discardingtheaccumulatedmiscellanyIhavenoticed,though,thatthesepurificationsofminetowhichmywifesubmitswithcautiousgracehaveusuallyledtoevengreatercomplexityinthelongpull,andIhavenodoubtthisonewill,too,forIdon’ttrustmyselfinasituationofthissortandsuspectthatmyfirstactasanoldhorsewillbetosettoworkimprovingthepastureImayevenjoinapastureimprovementsocietyThelasttimeItriedtopurifymyselfbyfire,Imanagedtoacquireazoointheprocessandamstillsupportingitandcarryingheavypailsofwatertotheanimals,ataskthatissometimesbeyondmystrength早晨是最惬意的时刻了吃饱喝足了的蚊子忙活了一晚上疲惫不堪贴着天花板和墙壁休息去了房间里也已一片狼藉被单扭作一团毛毯七零八落藤蔓这时还没长什么叶子白日的强光射进屋内空调也和蚊子一样没了声响。正午时分烈日当空从第三大道传来了疯狂的建设者美国蝉的鸣叫。庭园里麻雀唧唧喳喳地叫着第二个漫无目的的求爱期被压抑的激情夏日里的爱情和炎热的天气一样炽热慵懒放松。 初秋我们就要搬到牧场去了我会想念这个地方的吧。我总是试着简化我的生活我烧了书卖了休闲椅丢弃了日益增多的杂物。可我发现为简化生活我的所作所为妻子不得已还能宽容地接受了可到头来总是让生活变得更复杂。这次应该也不会例外一般情况下我都不相信自己能做到。我猜想自己去了牧场当上一匹老马后做的第一件事就是去干活以改善牧场环境。或许我应该加入一个牧场环保协会的。上次我烧东西来净化生活结果得到了个动物园现在我还在支持动物园的工作。不过扛着重重的担子给动物们送水有时真让我的身体吃不消了。
