有一天,大概是一九一四年五月中的一個下午,我正好這樣坐在點心鋪 里和人對奔。和我下棋的踫巧是黃金天使藥房的老板,同時也是我們駐防的 那個小城的副市長。例行的三盤棋我們早已下完,只是因為懶得動彈,還坐 著有一搭沒一搭地瞎聊——在這個無聊的小窩里還能上哪兒去呢?可是談話 也沒精打采,就像一支快滅的煙卷,有氣無力地冒著煙。這時候突然有人打 開店門,一襲迎風飛舞向四下飄開的大裙子,夾著一股新鮮空氣,把一個漂 亮的姑娘帶進屋來︰這個姑娘長著一雙褐色的杏仁眼,黑黑的皮膚,衣著講 究,絲毫不顯得土氣,重要的是,在這可憐的平板單調的環境里,竟出現了 一張嶄新的面孔。可惜這位俊俏的仙女對于我們這些滿懷敬意凝神注視的人 看也不看一眼;她邁著急促矯健的步伐,從鋪子里的九張大理石的小桌旁走 過,徑直走向櫃台,在那里馬上訂了十幾個各式蛋糕和一打燒酒。我立刻注 意到,蛋糕師傅格羅斯邁耶先生?在她面前畢恭畢敬地鞠躬行禮,我從來沒有 看見過他燕尾服背後的衣縫繃得這佯緊。甚至他的太太,這位長得豐滿結實 的外省維納斯,平時軍官們向她獻殷勤(往往一到月底,大家都欠她好幾筆 小小的賬目)她都愛理不理,這時候也從她出納台的位置上站起身來,彬彬 有禮,滿臉堆笑。蛋糕師傅在賬簿上記下訂貨的時候,那位漂亮姑娘心不在 焉地嚼著夾心巧克力糖,並且和格羅斯邁那太太隨便聊天。我們兩個也許不 大得體地拚命伸長脖子傻瞧,她可是一次也沒看過我們,當然這位年輕小姐 不會去拿一個點心盒子來增加她那縴縴玉手的負擔;格羅斯邁耶太太已經十 分巴結地連連保證,所有的訂貨都將送到小姐府上,不會出任何差錯,這位 小姐當然一絲一毫也沒有想到,要像我們這些凡夫俗子一樣到那台鋼制的自 動收款機那里去交納現金。我們大家馬上就明白了︰這是位無比闊氣、極其 高貴的顧客! 汽車輕捷無聲地向前滑動,坐在里面非常舒服,十分愜意。可是,正當色色五月天 丁香色五月 住桌子,我想起她那蒼白的臉突然漲得紅里透紫,好像有人把波爾多葡萄酒 注進了一個杯子。我把這幾行字讀了一遍又一遍,一連讀了三遍,深深舒了 口氣。她是多麼審慎地避開了我干的蠢事!同時又多麼巧妙、多麼得體地暗 示了自己的缺陷︰“我遺憾的是——一直呆在家里。”再也沒有比這樣寬恕 人家更高貴的了。絲毫沒有受委屈的口氣。于是我心里一塊石頭落地。我覺 得自己像是一個被告,原來以為要判無期徒刑,可是法官站起身來,戴上平 頂禮帽,宣判︰“無罪開釋。”不言而喻,我不久就得出城去向她表示感謝。 今天是星期四——那麼星期天我到城外去拜訪她。啊不,還不如星期六就去!色哥哥 驚。我只在她面前站了一會兒,鞠了一躬,那時候她已經入席就座;我只記 得她是個嬌嫩縴弱的女郎,另外還記得她那雙灰色的眸子向我飛快地投來好 奇的一瞥。可是現在她在哪兒呢?身為這家的小姐她總不會抽身走開吧?我 心情不安地仔細打量靠牆坐著的所有的婦女和姑娘,可是誰也不像是她。最 後我走進第三間屋子,那個四重奏樂隊隔著一架中國式屏風,在那兒演奏, 我如釋重負地舒了口氣。因為她就坐在那里。沒錯,肯定是她,那縴巧嬌嫩, 弱不勝衣的身姿,穿著一身淡藍色的衣服,坐在兩位年老的太太當中,她們 坐在房里太太們閑坐漫談的角落里,面前放著一張孔雀石藍的桌子,桌上供 著鮮花,裝在一個淺口的花缽里。她那小巧玲瓏的頭微微低垂,仿佛正在出 神地听音樂,正好襯著玫瑰花熾熱紅艷的色澤,我發現,她的額頭在依密的 褐里透紅的秀發下面,顯得多麼透明蒼白。可是我不容自己悠閑地觀賞。謝 天謝地,我暗暗地吁了口氣,一塊石頭落地,我總算偵察到了她的蹤跡。這 樣,我還能及時彌補我的疏忽。

What is Americana music?

Our big-sister organisation Americana Music Association in the USA describe the genre as incorporating elements of various American roots music styles resulting in a distinctive sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.  The Milk Carton Kids wrote a parody song on this very subject for the Americana Honours & Awards in Nashville this year.

The weekly chart is based on sales and is published by the Official Charts Company
