MITSTUDENT EINES MITSCHÜLERS – 李勋阳

十月 9, 2019

Li Xunyang
MITSTUDENT EINES MITSCHÜLERS

2005 oder 2006
in Kunming
Ein Mitschüler aus dem Gymnasium geht mit mir
und seinem Mitstudenten (Uni der Provinz Yunnang)
zusammen ins Restaurant.
Nach dem Essen
will der Mitstudent, frischgebackener Verkehrspolizist,
uns unbedingt einladen.
Er schnappt sich die Rechnung, durchsucht seine Taschen,
aber die Brieftasche hat er vergessen.
Er nimmt ganz in Ruhe
seine Uniform aus der Tasche,
zieht sie an und sagt:
“Ich geh raus auf die Straße und steh dort ein bisschen herum.”
Zehn Minuten später
seh ich er hat 800 Yuan in der Hand
und geht direkt die Rechnung begleichen.

TIME

My best time for writing poetry
was when I had time,
when I had all the time in the world
and nary a care.
I had time enough to read
Yu Hua’s every novel and many stories,
just because of the feel of his language
and Republic of Wine by Mo Yan
and Gao Xingjian, all in Chinese.
I didn’t write many poems.
Maia was small. I had time before her.
Actually, translating more poetry
began just before Leo was born.
Anyway, we were in China
forever.

HONG KONG – 沈浩波 Shen Haobo

Shen Haobo
HONG KONG

for thirty years
every single year
spring days waning
cicadas come calling
that one day
people there
come out in the streets
light candles for us
observe our memory
grieve
for us
they do not forget

the only city on earth

2019.6.13
Translated by MW, 6/15/19

“I don’t dare to share this poem in my WeChat groups. Unfortunately, most people in mainland China have no idea at all what happens abroad. They don’t know anything. Least of all that Hong Kong is a very special city with a great heart full of love and freedom. And for us Chinese people, that single one city on earth is slowly disappearing.”

Translated by MW, 6/15/19

 

《香港》

沈浩波

三十年来
从未间断
每逢春日渐逝
蝉声响起
的那一天
那里的人
就会上街
替我们点上蜡烛
替我们祭奠
替我们
悲伤
替我们不遗忘

地球上仅此一城

2019.6.13

可惜这首诗写完后我都没敢在朋友圈发出来。大部分大陆人根本不知道[外国]那边正在发生什么。什么都不知道。更没有什么人知道,香港这座城市,有一颗伟大的拥有爱和自由的心。而这对于华人来说的,地球上仅有的城,恐怕也将慢慢消失了。

 

 

IT WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO

五月 3, 2019

IT WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO

it was just ten years ago
ten and a half, a little more
ten years ago
feels like twenty years
this was our place
this was our house
our stairs
our door
this was our apartment
you were pregnant here
you climbed these stairs
to the seventh floor
with eighteen kilos more
in the summer
over 40 degrees celsius
humid, mosquitoes
this was our place
very small children
small bathroom
small tub
what a great luxury
terrace
plants are still there
the most important ones
pashanhu in chinese
what’s it called?
climbs up the railings,
the stuff we erected
only ten years ago,
twelve years ago,
fifteen years ago,
some of it.
the roofs,
the birds in the morning,
bats
the other buildings
the view,
the people,
the smells
we were
sgt. pepper’s
lonely hearts club band

NOBLE POEM

wish I could write a noble poem
a prized noble poem
a swedish prized noble poem
a norwegian prized noble poem
pricey and noble
like norwegian beer
everything becomes pricey and noble
unless global warming
comes fast enough

MW October 2016

 

last week the brazilian author ricardo domeneck wrote a noble commentary on Facebook that actually sounds a little dylanesque, partly. masters of war, yes. dynamite. 伊沙 has a great little nobel dynamite poem. from 1992. 今年的文学諾貝爾得主有一首 Masters of War,我有一首 “X&Y”, 伊沙翻譯成《一搭一挡》。講尼克松和他的外交部长、大陸前领導和他的首相等等。墙上還有“毛”字,因為伊沙1991年一首小詩。 we had a reading here in vienna on Oct. 15 in our new housing close to the new central train station. we have a library downstairs. run by people from our house, we are there often. open to other houses, gudrun and peter built a stage, and we have theatre. and we had a bob dylan night a few months ago. masters of war is a little like my poem X&Y. x was cruel/ butt is sore/ y was able/ and suave./ both loved culture/ both destroyed/ hundred million/ butts are cold. written march 2007 in beijing. yes, nixon and kissinger, mao and zhou, maybe there is a pair like that in brazil? only six or seven swedes in over 100 years of a great swedish prize for literature is actually not very much, is it? wonder if ricardo brazil/domeneck/africa ever read tomas tranströmer. oh well. pity this busy monster manunkind/ not. progress is a comfortable disease:/ your victim (death and live safely beyond) plays with the bigness of its littleness …[…] pity poor flesh and trees, poor stars and stones, but never this fine specimen …. listen: there’s a hell/ of a good universe next door. let’s go. there must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief …

yes, the music of jimi hendrix. dylan is honored as tip of the iceberg, should be chuck berry and many others at the same time. preferably african brazilian women. yes, manunkind maybe doesn’t always deserve something poor ricardo doesn’t always get, maybe. pity. oh yes.

奥地利国庆还要等二十几天 AUSTRIAN NATIONAL DAY

十月 1, 2016

cam01215

朋友们好!
照片上維也納,昨晚和今天上午。还有上个周末去的在多瑙河岛上的中国表演。看到多瑙河,还有火车总站附近我家旁边新公园、工地。这几天天气很暖和。早上 凉,中午和下午像夏天。九月份下雨很少。听说从莫扎特以后最热的九月份。这里除了周末之外十月初不放假。十一、十十等等节日几乎没人听说过。奥地利国庆十 月二十六日。1955年宣布中立为国庆日,奥地利能够相当富裕、自由、民主,没有像德国被分割,没有美国和苏联的军队等等就是1955年中立条约的成果。 可惜现在那時候建立的一切被威胁。被所谓自由党威胁。去年十月初維也納市选举那所谓自由的新纳粹党被打败了,虽然还拿到三分之一的选票。社会民主党得了百 分之四十左右,很明显的胜利。因为那时候他们非常明显地反對极右思想,很明显的跟公民社会一块照顾难民,就是很明显地給人家希望,虽然有腐败,虽然有不少 人愤怒,不少人失业,经济情况不一定乐观,而且全球化越来越不公平等等现象。去年胜利很明显,虽然还是很悬。而今年一年四次选總統,十二月初最后一次。极 右候选人还是很厉害。奥地利还是被威胁。

PEKINGMENSCH

wir haben eine sehr schöne tochter
gestern war 9/11
gestern vor 15 jahren
unsere tochter ist 14
2002 in china geboren
am 4. september
sie ist noch nicht sehr groß
noch nicht ausgewachsen
sie hat ihren klaren eigenen kopf
wenn sie nicht wütend ist
als kleines kind war sie auf meinem fahrrad
in einem drahtkorb
manchmal auch vorne
wie später ihr bruder
mit drei oder vier hat sie gesungen
ganz lange geschichten
jedesmal bisschen anders
zwischen gongti und dongzhimen
zuojiazhuang
in beijing 2005 oder so
dornröschen schneewittchen und aschenbrödel
und viel maia eigenbau
gesungen chinesisch oder auf deutsch
auf dem weg zum schwimmbad oder zurück
oder auch fun dazzle
chinesisch als erste sprache
wo shi beijingren
2002 ist sehr lange her

WARUM?

warum spricht fischer
nicht gegen hofer?
warum beschützt er nicht die verfassung?
warum spricht der verfassungsgerichtshof
in österreich
nicht gegen die rechten?
woher kommt die verfassung?
wovor soll sie schützen?

AAAAAAAHHHHH! Es gab nicht genug Ablehnung. Nicht genug Abgrenzen. Zuviel, viel zuviel Akzeptieren, Ermöglichen, Zusammenarbeiten. Wer die 2. Republik infrage stellt, Verbotsgesetz etc., darf den Staat nicht repräsentieren. Wer das nicht kapiert, schadet uns allen.

Yi Sha: SADDAM THE SMOKER

SADDAM THE SMOKER

saddam hussain
before they hanged him
asked for a cigarette
fuck! that one smoke
had he drawn it into his mouth
he‘d have been floating in heaven already
one satisfied sigh
at he end of his life
would have been the best cigarette
he ever had
better than each of those
very best quality
cuban cigars
but –
mean little
iraqi warden
stuck to the rules and refused
fuck! what was that for
smokers don’t want very much before death
now he’s past all regret
he had nothing to say
facing his hour
saddam hussain went like a man

wee

little wee gets up to play
we are more than what we are
sometimes we may call it god
wee may call as soon as twelve
sometimes we may call it light
wee may call as soon as two
wee may always call at night
little wee wakes up to cry
we are less than what we are
wee may sleep as soon as noon
sometimes we may call it god
wee may call as late as eight
sometimes we can see the light
wee can call us any time
sometimes we can feel the night
sometimes wee can be alright

Second Anniversary of the 2011 Japan Earthquake

hold it

(quakes, tsunamis, nuclear threats …)

the days of the blossoms
the yellow the white
the shoots and the air
and the birds and the bees
the flies and the beetles
the earth and the trembling
the cars that come floating
the buildings come tumbling
the life that sprouts

MW March 2011

innehalten

(fuer japan, yunnan, burma …)

die tage die blueten
die spitzen die gruenen
die weissen die gelben
die bienen die fliegen
die wogen die steigen
die wagen die treiben
die erde die bebt und
das leben das keimt
