i am nobody (5) 我是无名之辈之五

(注:中文在英文下面)

You are a surplus woman, someone says to Ms. Nobody.

She is a surplus woman, another says.

I am a surplus woman? Ms. Nobody says to herself.

I am a surplus woman… She repeated, as she finds one door is closed behind her, then another.

And She finds herself sandwiched between a huge creature’s shadow and her own. She is upset, then angry, then sad, really sad… And then…up she lifts her legs and away she runs, or escapes, or…Or so she thinks…

(Notes: A surplus woman is one who is unmarriable because she is “too old”  and often “over-educated” and “over-skilled” in a man’s eyes.)

你是剩女,有人对无名之辈说。

她是剩女,另一个人说。

我是剩女?无名之辈反问道。

我是剩女……她默念着。

然后,她吃一个闭门关。不久,又一个闭门关。

她由沮丧而愤怒而悲哀,终于决定逃离,或者不是逃离。但那是什么呢?
