維馬丁五首

Yang Jinsong and Fans

Yang Jinsong and Fans

(櫻)

白與粉色漂浮

透著光載入一日

在狂人群眾

樹木兀自開花

生長、成熟、垂落

佇立,迎風呼吸

BLOSSOM

shine and float in white and pink

carried forth into the day

all among the loony people

certainly the trees are blooming

growing, falling, ripening

standing, breathing in the wind

MW April 2011

BLÜTE

weiss und rosa leuchtend schweben

fortgetragen in die tage

unter allen irren menschen

blühen zweifellos die bäume

wachsen, fallen, reifen, stehen

atmen, öffnen sich im wind

那兒沒啥好說的

維馬丁

那兒沒啥好說的

他們全是建築工

拆掉又蓋上

那兒沒啥好說的

他們是孩子充滿歌

歐羅巴的軍樂
吶喊,旗幟飄揚

那兒沒啥好說的

他們是舞動的秋葉

他們是翱翔的飛鳥

那兒是今年的早熱
在城市的放射器裏

那兒沒啥好說的

他們是販售店鋪

歐羅巴的車

裝飾在黑窗子裏

踐踏小包心菜葉

他們被非法販售

那兒沒啥好說的

他們是古老的城河

每個人保持健康

他們試圖去過活

他們站立在街上

他們賣VCD碟

那兒沒啥好說的

那兒啥都能買

這兒是北京,終究

THERE IS NOTHING TO DESCRIBE

there is nothing to describe

they are all construction workers

tearing down and building up

there is nothing to describe

they are children full of songs

european marching tunes

shouting, waving up and down

there is nothing to describe

they are dancing autumn leaves

they are soaring flocks of birds

there is early heat this year

in the city’s radiators

there is nothing to describe

they are selling groceries

and the european car

all decked out in darken’d windows

tramples little cabbage leaves

they are sold illegally

there is nothing to describe

they are ancient city moats

everybody keeping fit

they are trying to get by

they are standing on the street

they are selling vcd

there is nothing to describe

there is everything to buy

this is beijing, after all

MW 2004

那兒沒啥

維馬丁

那兒沒啥好說的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好說的

那兒沒啥好交代的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好交代的

那兒沒啥好記住的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好記住的

那兒沒啥好盼望的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好盼望的

那兒沒啥好道歉的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好道歉的

那兒沒啥好遺忘的

我們是活老百姓

蓋上又拆掉

那兒沒啥好遺忘的

THERE IS NOTHING

there is nothing to describe

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to describe

there is nothing to explain

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to explain

there is nothing to remember

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to remember

there is nothing to expect

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to expect

there is nothing to regret

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to regret

there is nothing to forget

we are ordinary people

building up and tearing down

there is nothing to forget

<主席>

維馬丁

主席,他不是鳥

主席,他不是飛機

到底主席是什麼?

主席為你作一張椅子

主席,他作所有的腳

主席,他作所有扶手

主席,他作每道靠背

主席,他作所有的椅子

別跟我說你不知道

主媳又是什麼?

主媳也會作這些

主媳作所有的腳

主媳作所有扶手

主媳作每道靠背

主媳作所有的椅子

別跟我說你不知道

CHAIRMAN

chairman, he is not a bird
chairman, he is not a plane

what is chairman all about?
chairman makes a chair for you
chairman, he makes all the legs
chairman, he makes all the arms
chairman, he makes every back
chairman, he makes all the chairs
don’t tell me you didn’t know

what is chairlady about?
chairlady will make them too
chairlady makes all the legs
chairlady makes all the arms
chairlady makes every back
chairlady makes all the chairs
don’t tell me you didn’t know

MW March 2008

<下次>

維馬丁

下次我是顆石頭

下次人生,你會是什麼?

當你死時,你會是什麼?

這問題並不算精確

那裏並沒有一個世界在下次

當我們累了,它就在這裏

而在早上,神會願意

下次我會是張紙

下次我是個孩子

下次人生,你會是什麼?

當你死時,你會是什麼?

這問題並不算精確

那裏並沒有一個世界在下次

它跟著我們,當我們到那裏

而在早上,神會願意

這次我的孩子在這裏

2007年8月

林維甫 譯

NEXT TIME AROUND

i am a rock next time around
what will you be in your next life?
what will you be when you are dead?
the question is not accurate
there is no world next time around
when we are tired, it is here
and in the morning, god be willing
i’m paper then next time around

next time around i am a child
what will you be in your next life?
what will you be when you are dead?
the question is not accurate
there is no world next time around
it is with us, when we are there
and in the morning, god be willing
my child is here this time around
