POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU 433

POEM TRANSLATION HAIKU 433

FALL FOR FAIR CHANCE

(跌為争平机)

 

hang on heart shaped hook

抓住心形釣

perilous on open end

不安在開放端上

hope on red alert

期待紅警報

 

shape for sentiment

情緒化狀態

affection high in thin air

感情高高薄氣中

rescue runs below

解救下面跑

 

black dress in distress

黑衣苦難中

harp on hold no more, hail help

不再喋喋、呼救命

fall for a fair chance

跌為争平机

 

Note:

With infatuation, it is difficult to see one is holding at the open end of the hook.  It is easy to take the shape as true sentiment of love, until the red alert. Many think too much about the danger of fall, with  or without rescue below, and keep holding on to a failed relate. There is also a chance in any crisis. Letting go of distress may be de stressed, or end up more trouble ad infinitum.
