《柑橘頌》
哦,40年代,那些柑橘在隆冬時節運抵北達科他州,裝在網袋或板條箱里,從白雪皚皚的戶外搬進室內。僅僅看那顏色就令人垂涎欲滴,也足以讓我和哥哥想到是該生病的時候了,這是確保我們能夠不斷吃到橘子的最保險的辦法。
“媽媽,我們感冒了。”
“‘我們’?你是說,你們倆想吃橘子吧?”
對于這個問題,我們很難回答或者辯解;問題好像超出了我們小小的要求。
“如果你們想吃橘子,”她會說,“為什么不直接要呢?”
“我們想要一個橘子。”
“又是'我們',我們想要一個橘子。”
“請給我們一個吧。”
“這才是我喜歡的問法,那么,為什么你們不用同一種方法各自要一個,而是分開說呢?”
“媽媽-”于是我們照辦了。為了得到一個橘子我們作任何讓步。如果橘子沒有在感恩節前運到北部,肯定會在圣誕節前運到。橘子首先堆放在倉庫里的板條箱里。倉庫里充滿了霉味,一張張長椅背靠背放著。堆滿橘子后,倉庫里充斥著一種春天特有的橘酸味,仿佛這里用萬能清潔劑清洗過一遍,以備來年再用。接下來,板條箱會現在出現在當地食品店,頂端的班條通常反著插幾根,因為我們能嗅到新鮮木頭的清香混合著彌漫于空氣中的橘香。這比日歷更明確地預示著該季節的到來。
打開的板條箱里(似乎橘子本身的力量撐破的),一兩個可愛的橘子會擠出包裝--一般都是紫色薄紙,似乎紫色是唯一能包裹擁擠在一起的橘子的顏色。板條箱一端貼有紙質標簽--藍色的背景襯托著一個橘子,或是橙色的背景襯托著一只藍鵝--寓意著多彩的另一個世界(不像我們這兒正值隆冬)。每一個橘子,剝去外面的包裝紙,呈現在眼前的就像一個圓圓的小太陽,鼓勵你想象放在餐廳果品盤里的橘子。它們在燈光下熠熠生輝,似乎散發著來自窗外的真正冬日陽光的溫暖。而且,它們都蓋有帶藍色名字的印戳,使你能想象到它們原產于另一個陌生的世界。因此,在圣誕節,你會扒開圣誕襪中其他所有的物品,猶如挖一條通向中國的隧道,找出襪筒腳趾部位那個鼓鼓囊囊的圓形物體。它在悄悄地提醒你,千山萬水之外還存在另一個完全不同的國度。
從滿滿的一筐中,你終于拿到一個橘子--就是它--當母親等技術嫻熟的人拿刀切開橘子,切的如此恰到好處,突然爆發出來的橘香和橘汁就像煙花一樣向四面八方擴散。此刻如果有機會偷偷拿根火柴(禁物)和橘皮,真的能點燃出如霧的煙花。靠近蠟燭擠壓橘皮也可以制造出四處飛濺的煙花(圣誕節至少會點燃一支蠟燭吧),剩下的橘皮可以放在爐火上熏香整個屋子。

《Ode to an Orange》
Oh.those oranges arriving in the midst of the North Dakota winters of the forties--the mere color of them,carried through the door in a net bag or a crate from out of the white winter landscape.Their appearance was enough to set my brother and me to thinking that it might be about time to develop an illness,which was the surest way of receiving a steady supply of them.
      "Mom,we think we're getting a could."
      "'we'?YOu mean,you two want an orange?"
      This was diffcult for us to answer or dispute;the matter seemed moved beyond our mere wanting.
      "If you want an orange,"she would say,"why don't you ask for one?"
      "We want an orange."
      "'We'again.'We want an orange.'"
      "May we have an orange,plesse."
      "That's the way you know I like you to ask for one Now,why don't each of you ask for one in that same way,but separately?"
      "Nom-"And so on.There was no depth of degradation that we wouldn't descend to in order to get one.If the oranges hadn't wended their way northward by Thanksgiving,they were sure to arrive before the Christmas season,stacked first in crates at the depot,filling that musty place,where pews sat back to back.with a springtime acidity,as if te buiding had been rinsed with a renewing elixir that set it right for yet another year.Then the crates would appear at the local grocery store,often with the top slats pried beck on a few of them,so that we were aware of a resious smell of fresh wood in addition to the already rangy atmosphere that foretold the season more explicitly than any calendar.
      And in the broken-open crates(as if burst by the power of the oranges themselves).one or two of the lovely spheres would lie free of the tissue they came wrapped in--always purple tissue,as if that were the only color that could contain the populations of them in their nestled positions.The crates bore paper labels at one end--of an orange against a blue background,or of a blue goose against an orange background--signitying the colorful otherworld(unlike our witry one)that these phenomena had arisen from.Each orange,stripped of its pro tective wrapping,as vivid in nomena had arisen from.Each orange.Stripped of its protective wrapping,as vivid in your vision as a pebbled sun,encouraged you to picture a whole pyramid of them in a bowl on your dining room table,glowing in the light as if gicing fof the warmthe that came through the windows from the real winter sun .And all fo them came stamped with a a bluepurple name as froeigh as the otherworld that you might imagine as their place of origin,so that on Christams day you would find yourself digging past everthing else in your Christmas stocking,as if tunneling down to the country of China,in order to reach the rounded bulge at the tip of the toe which meat that you had received a personal reminder of another state of existence,wholly separted from your own.
