FAHNENSTANGE – 張小云 Zhang Xiaoyun

FAHNENSTANGE

Vor dem Familientempel der Chen stehen 8 Fahnenstangen.
Jede Fahnenstange wird an beiden Seiten von Steinen gehalten.
Auf den Steinen stehen die Absolventen der Palastprüfungen von der Song- bis zur Qing-Dynastie.
Auf dem Platz davor liegen 6 abgezogene Föhrenstämme.
Bürgermeister Chen sagt, manche Stangen müssen ersetzt werden.
Ich frage, was ist, wenn jetzt jemand aus der Familie
seinen Doktor macht und so weiter, kriegt er vielleicht eine Stange?
Der Bürgermeister schüttelt den Kopf.
Aber er fügt gleich hinzu, bei der letzten Renovierung vor über zehn Jahren
haben die Ältesten sich besprochen,
falls ein Nachfahre
etwas Höheres wird als Vize-Kreisvorstand,
dann kann man schon darüber beraten.

新世纪诗典作品联展#张小云#(18.0)

 

伊沙推荐:这个地方,在福建漳州,我也到访过,不曾写成诗,关键在于:当时无从了解当代情况,所以无缘古今嫁接擦出火花,也就无诗而归。时隔多年,读小云兄诗,受教了!

​高歌:那些断裂的,未延续下来的,是太厚古拘泥,还是不同时代的价值观对接不上呢?不过,做官在此间倒是亘古不变地被尊重被推崇……

况禹点评《新诗典》张小云《旗杆》:张小云的诗里有一路,属于“有滋有味的当代风俗画”,之前已经领略过他笔下的北京现代市井,这一首又把我们带到了福建漳州。至于博士博士后没有过去的进士在老人处获凭高(这一点我很赞同),副县长以上却又评官威胜出(其实也不算太错,因为古代相当多县令都是进士出身,当代的副县长好赖也算个县丞罢),这都不过是顺笔一带的,也正因不刻意,反倒显出了机锋。黎雪梅读《新世纪诗典》之张小云《旗杆》:“学而优则仕”的观念对国人有着非常广泛而深远的影响,历来是中国知识分子毕生的追求的目标,因为只要达到了这个目标,活着的时候不仅可以光宗耀祖,受人尊敬与崇拜,死了之后还可以在祠堂立牌位,受后人供奉祭祀。这一点至今并没有发生根本的变化,如诗中所写“如果哪位后生当到副县长以上/就可以研究为他立杆”,这仍然是对权力尊崇与膜拜,哪怕是读到博士与博士后也不能网开一面。一根旗杆横贯古今,细致入微地景观描摹,让我们能感受到陈氏宗祠悠久的历史与文化,在其中还有荣耀、有传统,还有根深蒂固的家族观念及国人的心理意识,教科书级别地呈现,令人思接千载,不胜感慨唏嘘。晏非跟读《新世纪诗典》| 2021.12.8诗人张小云《旗杆》立旗杆表彰优秀之士,本无可厚非,奈何历朝历代说到底就是官本位,当了官才算优秀人才,当了大官才是栋梁之材,才能光宗耀祖,其他的技能都只是等而下之,或者奇技淫巧。我们在那些枯黄的地方志书中,能够连篇累牍地看到这种糟朽的记载。这种现状到了近代以降,在华夏大地是否有了实质性改观,本诗可作一个样本考察,读到博士博士后的明确不能立旗杆旌表,而“如果哪位后生当到副县长以上/就可以研究为他立杆”,官本主义的现实仍未真正破局,未来的路还会很艰辛。需要指出的是,以前的进士好歹都可称学富多车,学而优则仕能够理解,而今官场所见所闻,可称得上怪现状,既看不到进之学识,亦看不到士之风采。马金山|读张小云的诗《旗杆》的十一条:1、很多时候,把事物写清楚,就是诗;2、写作的目的首先是表达情感,表现事物,然后让已经死的东西,再重新的活过来,并且充满活力;3、张小云,1965年生于厦门,走过第三代诗歌年代,倡行过荒诞与类型实验写作。著有诗集《我去过冬天》、《够不着》、《现代汉语读本》、《北京类型》、《买菜哪MyChina》、《一路畅通》等。2019年1月获亚洲诗人奖,2020年6月获李白诗歌奖特别奖;4、至今为止,也见过居士两面,一次是2017年冒着台风参加的惠州诗会上,另一次是今年六月份的绵阳诗会上,其在沉静中,依然给人以朴实而温暖的感觉,这就是诗人无形的通感;5、张小云的诗,荒诞之中,充盈着禅性的意蕴,含厚中显现出独特的精神内涵,既有口语化的质感,还有现代化的生活记录,却总有一种陌生化的力量深藏其中,让人回味悠长;6、诗以镜头式的布局,一步步引向深入,透过现象,书写独具特色的传统文化,并在此基础上,将古今的门第观念,予以融汇贯通,细致入微,而又深刻透彻;7、诗中不紧不慢的陈述,具体到一个明确的区域,位置,以及宗祠上面,从而形成了鲜明的时代背景和历史纵深,并由旗杆融为一体,不仅是精神的,更是信仰的;8、不在于文化程度的高低,而在于官位的大小,这是从古至今一直以来,人的价值观现实一面的真实写照,还是根深蒂固的思想体系;9、诗的标题《旗杆》,在本诗中带有信仰的东西,而且让人深刻地感受到宗教事务的高级文化,并自带典型的意识与力量,又颇有代表性;10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“诗的呈现,是一切事物的力量”;11、信仰之诗、观念之诗、文明之诗。

 

 

CHURCH

CHURCH

In the middle of the altar
behind and above
is a Chinese center.
Must be a coincidence.
The Middle Kingdom.
Probably some kind of cross.
It’s a big church.
Maybe they even thought of
the big one in Istanbul
where Christianity started
to matter in a very big way
with the first Christian emperor.
Until they destroyed it,
the crusaders
when they sacked
the Eastern beacon
of Christendom.
I wonder what they thought
when they built this big church
in the 19th century
in this worker’s district.
Today
a conference begins
in the Vatican
about rape
and other sexual crimes
perpetrated by priests.
I guess there is hope
right there in the middle.
Let us pray.

FROM FLORENCE

4月 20, 2018

 

THE VIEW

the view
from the little window
in the staircase
is like a camera.
It’s a little cold.
The picture is magnificent,
but you feel the draft.
You can’t take it with you
wherever you’ll go,
but why would you want to?

MW April 2018, Florence

 

 

MARIA

maria is really very young
at least in the one adoration
and in her coronation by Lippi
14, 15
that’s why the whole story is so preposterous
and so pure and so holy
she doesn’t know what happened at all.

FROM FLORENCE

the wine from Florence tastes very good
not a famous wine
just from the organic farmers’ market
in front of Santo Spirito
no label
but just as real as the whole town
and the province
earthy
although this is the city
where modernity comes from
arguably
I wonder if they use wine
in Jewish services
I’m pretty sure they had wine
at the big wedding
commemorated in stone
at the synagogue
a recent wedding
two people from England
they must have local weddings too
a synagogue in full working order
big beautiful free-standing dome
not as big as the Duomo
but standing proud to be seen
from afar
Moorish style,
Byzantine probably
you could say
in the 19th century
of Christian reckoning
it was thought to be safe
to build such a large house of God
in the open
it was the age
of emancipation
modernity failed
Christianity failed
to prevent anything
although some were hidden
although some survived
most synagogues in Europe are gone
discussing religion
atheism whatever
the future of manunkind not
is all very idle
this is where we come from
if there is any we
this building
this city
this country
this wine
if there is
or was any we
this farmer’s wine
this countryside
this city
among many others
is where we are going
you don’t need machines
or hardly any
for this kind of history
you don’t need computers
not really
if there has been
if there can be any we
it is here.
cheers!
