LICHTMESS

Um Lichtmess
ungefähr
ist chinesisches Neujahr.
Heuer ist es
ein bisschen später.
China hat sich –
Die ganze Welt hat sich
noch nicht erholt
vom letzten Jahr.

新山海经

日本人
像德国人
中国人
像意大利人
其他人
都在中间
地中海
跟阿尔卑斯山
一样深

MOON

The moon
is round & bright & small.
She is light.
She is high.
She is alone.
That is all
for tonight.
Go to sleep.

MOND

Der Mond
ist rund & hell & klein.
Er ist Licht.
Er ist hoch.
Er ist allein.
Das ist mein
Gedicht.
Gute Nacht!

《黄金名语》

维马丁

中国好像
有古老的成语

先不说了
去年这时候
武汉新非典
大夫先说了
民间先说了
政府没反应
大干部决定
这先不说了
现在民间
挖黄金的老板
也学习好了
金矿爆炸了
人都在下面
也先不说了
我说这件事
也许不对
只能按照
今天早上
奥地利广播
国际新闻

老鼠第一、第八十一章

维马丁

猫可猫,非常猫
鸣可鸣,非常鸣
无鸣,地下之始
有鸣,万鼠之母
故常无毒,以观其妙
常有毒,以观其暴
此两者,同出而异名
同谓之险
险之又险,众鼠之门

食物不美,美物不食
善鼠不变,变鼠不善
吃者不薄,薄者不吃
剩鼠不积,既以为鼠己愈有,
既以与鼠己愈多
天之猫,害而有利
剩鼠之猫,为而不争

VENICE

Stravinsky lies buried in Venice.
Diaghilev too.
Joseph Brodsky lies buried in Venice,
and Ezra Pound.
It’s a strange island.
Out in the back on the way to the nicer islands, Murano, Burano.
It’s mostly ashes, stored in big vaults.
People are born, people come, people die;
but the island doesn’t get bigger.
There are prominent children’s graves,
ordinary children.
Venice is like New York city.
The Veneto region could be New York state
or more of New England.
Venice has many parts, just like New York.
Beaches are rather nice actually,
the Lido is long.
If you can make out there,
you’ll make out anywhere,
anytime in your world.
Sooner or later you pay the ferryman,
the Vaporetto, just get a card
for three days, very well worth it.
Most of the graves of strangers here
are not well tended.
So come again
but get away
while you can.

威尼斯

大理古城
原来像这里
丽江古城
原来像这里
卡什古城
原来像这里
中国还有原来的古城吗?
就是古城有现代化
没有失去味道
和历史?

看照片

看两年前的照片
觉得十年过去了
也许有些个人的原因
但谁都知道
今年全球万万人
都有这种感觉
那么这意味着
可以互相同情
尽量互相帮助
这样大家有希望了吧?
但愿这样,但愿。

BOOK

When you read a book,
you know
you don’t know,
you didn’t know,
you won’t know.
If your book is any good
you know that.
When you read a book,
you are free.

TRAVEL

They say the soul doesn’t go faster
than a camel.
We flew from Riga to Vienna
a few days ago.
Maybe one day we’ll do it by rail,
right now it would be rather complicated.
Our souls, could be they are still at the beach
or in the forest at the Baltic sea
in a few days they might steal a ride
coming here, hopefully.
How many times did we fly to China?
How many souls dazed and exhausted
out in the deserts along the Great Wall?

MW August 2020

MOON

The moon
looks like Iron Man’s mask.
He dies in the end,
sorry, spoiler alert,
Iron Man, not the moon.
The moon lives on
in our hearts, like the sun,
in plants and animals,
and in the tides
and things like that,
although I don’t really know.
We do what we can.

MW August 2020

Death

Death is next to light,
dark at the other side of white.
Living things die.
We get to watch ourselves
for a while,
to watch each other
much longer
than many things in the world,
it must seem.

MW August 2020

LOT

An abandoned lot.
Old wooden house in the back,
boarded up.
The woods come back onto the boulevard.
Crickets, weeds, insects, bees.
Tall trees, they love that here.
Lots of humans like
lots of no humans
where they can hide
for a while.

海边恐怖秀

拉脱维亚也是俄罗斯人
最喜欢的海滩
曾经是苏联海边
俄罗斯有时很恐怖
俄罗斯是前苏联核心
苏联解放了东欧
解放了维也纳
解放了柏林
去掉纳粹恐怖
随后苏联在东欧
就建设了帝国
拉脱维亚立陶宛爱斯托尼亚
一百多年前
曾经是俄罗斯帝国一部分
更早有其他的,
立陶宛跟波兰是一个大帝国,
有大瑞典等等。
俄罗斯语
非常好
听起来像
欧真哈啦说
差不多
英语小说和电影
Clockwork Orange
英国不良少年
有一种秘密语言
一部分是俄语
非常好
欧真哈啦说
就变成
Ocean horror show
Ocean Horrorshow
大海恐怖秀
海边恐怖秀
今天拉脱维亚海边
就是一种天堂
至少从旅游客角度来说
疫情比其他欧洲都好
总共
一点都不恐怖
反而
非常好

MAD, Madcap

Make America dim

Make America diminished equality
Make America diminished

WHY PEOPLE VOTE TRUMP
(and why De Niro hates him, he wants this only in movies)

Because
He doesn’t play by the rules.
And Russia and China
And most other people
Cannot always afford
To play by the rules.
And when money talks
And the Mafia beckons
You cannot afford
To play by the rules.

《为什么投票给特朗普》
(以及为什么德尼罗讨厌他,他只在电影里想要这一切)

因为
他不按规矩出牌
俄罗斯和中国等等
大多数其他人
不是总能忍受
按规矩出牌
当金钱开口时
黑手党在召唤
你不是总能忍受
按规矩出牌

— 维马丁2020年5月 (伊沙译)

《为什么投票给特朗普》
(以及为什么德尼罗讨厌他,希望这情节只出现在电影里)

因为
他不按规矩出牌
还有俄罗斯和中国
还有其他大多数人
承受不起
总按牌理出牌
当金钱开口
黑手党在打招呼
你承受不起
按牌理出牌

— 维马丁2020年5月 (石见译)

自由了

喜悦
就是喜悦
自由
但愿是自由
喜悦深
如梦
失踪没有死
谢谢上帝
幸福
就是幸运

GRINDING

The world is grinding to a halt.
So are we all madly in love?
Or have we come to our senses
about the climate
between each other?
About working together?
We don’t have a choice.
And we don’t have a choice
in hoping it will soon be over.
And we still let them set our clocks.

EVERY DAY

every day
is a poem
if you have time
at the moment there are many people
who have more time
although you still might not have peace and quiet enough.
do you have a moment?
is an everyday question.
at the moment many many millions
in many parts of the earth
have something in common.
actually that was the case long before,
but nobody said
affected people of all nations,
let’s help each other
as best as we can
or did they?
or did we?

MOON

the moon
is hanging out
in isolation

the moon
is hanging out
in isolation
behind the clouds
over flowering trees
it’s getting cold again

CORONA

Actually it’s always like this
for many people.
You live from one day to the next.
Only now it’s a big deal
for the whole world
for a while.

疫情

其实生活一直就这样
对很多人,所有的现象。
要躲起来,
要避免警察。
要依赖邻居,
要怕一些邻居。
每天每一刻都可能被传染,
要互相照顾。

WIRKLICHKEIT

In Wirklichkeit ist es immer wie jetzt.
Halt nicht auf einmal,
doch in der Schwebe,
ein bisschen versetzt.
In Wirklichkeit ist
dein Leben nicht fest,
sicher ist gar nichts,
egal was wer sagt.
In Wirklichkeit bist du Tanz und Musik.
Wir sind was sich dreht
oder steht
und jemanden sucht
solang es noch geht.

LIFE

Life
A bird
Life means
you are a bird
you are not a bird
you are a bird
in birds who remember
Life
A bird

is warm
is cold

sits
and flies

sleeps
doesn’t sleep
goes to the bathroom
sleeps
perchance to dream

Life is
a swing

生活

生活
一只鸟
你是一只鸟

很冷

飞走

不能睡
上厕所
睡觉
做梦

CORONA-VIRUS

In China

die angeblich alles kontrollieren
was angeblich unvermeidbar sei
schon wieder
versagt.

CORONA-VIRUS

The people
in China
who are supposed to control everything
which is supposed to be inevitable
have failed
yet again.

据说控制一切的人
那据说不可避免的一切的控制
