TO MY COUNTRY

TO MY COUNTRY

cannot abandon this country, five thousand years of meager creeks and cold peaks
five thousand years having a band of whores erecting gateways for memory
its people industrious, intelligent, brave
and used by these whores, pressed to their last drop of blood
cannot abandon this country, connected from birth inseparably
my tears becoming one of its rivers, drinking its juices
slurping its blood, look at these whores telling lies as their trade
poets are used to the emperor’s new clothes, no-one plays a small child
I cannot abandon this country, nor am I having these whores banish me
getting angry is fruitless, I’d rather become another Sisyphus
and even for dying, it is on its earth where I am going to sleep

Tr. MW, Sept. 2013

《给祖国》

不能放下这个国度,它五千年的水瘦山寒
五千年它让一群婊子们立满了牌坊
它的人民勤劳、勇敢、智慧
也被这些婊子们利用,柞尽了最后一滴血
不能放下这个国度,出生就注定与它不能解除关系
我的哭泣将会成为它的一条河流,喝着它的汁
饮着它的血,看婊子们对它撒谎成性
习惯了皇帝的新装,诗人们也不肯做一次小孩
不能放下这个国度,无论是遗弃或者被婊子们放逐
我的血液里仍将有爱,有着因爱而生成的愤怒
这愤怒注定是徒劳,我宁愿再做一个西西弗斯
哪怕就是死去,我也要在它的土地上安眠
