YOU CAN’T GET AWAY FROM THE PAIN – 如也 Ru Ye

十二月 14, 2014

Ru Ye
YOU CAN‘T GET AWAY FROM THE PAIN

the doctor at the physical said
your IUD
is an old model
not easy to get it out
you fill out an application form at your work unit
get a stamp from the family planning bureau where you live
then come again and we’ll extract it

in your mind’s eye
you see the old elm tree for hanging the laundry
iron wire grown into the tree
scar looks like cutting a body in half
now you want the wire pulled out from your flesh
your knees getting weak
People’s Hospital corridor
you sit thirty minutes
and still can’t get up

WHAT WAS IT THAT RUMSFELD SAID? – 侯马 Hou Ma

WHAT WAS IT THAT RUMSFELD SAID?

there are things we know, there are things we don’t know.
there are things everyone knows we know we know them.
there are things no-one knows we don’t know them
and there are things we don’t know we know them.
the point is we know there are things we don’t know we don’t know them.

I memorized these lines and made a guy listen.
he was dying with laughter, tears in his eyes.
sometimes I think rumsfeld wasn’t bad after all.
made you laugh like a baby, laugh yourself silly.
made me say this world is actually nice
to make one person happy.

day and night
migrant workers are ready
fully dressed up
anti-static coats
anti-static hats
anti-static shoes
anti-static gloves
anti-static wrist bands
well-equipped at attention
waiting for orders
once bells are ringing
one and all report to the first emperor!
