SNOWMAN – 宋壮壮

SNOWMAN

Big snowfall in town.
In an acupuncture clinic,
five doctors in white
sit around drinking tea.
No patients at all.
Outside it’s white far and wide.
One of the white-coats
builds a small snowman
on the window sill
and sticks a needle
in the snowman’s butt.
The white-coats are laughing,
each gets a needle in,
finishing their
work for the day.

CHINESE SECRETS – 宋壮壮

CHINESE SECRETS

In middle school, second year,
my older brother and his whole school
are brought in a truck to the highway,
made to stand on both sides.
Each one holds a fake flower.
They wait for a long time,
then they wave plastic flowers,
shouting “Welcome! Welcome! …”
A few cars rushing by,
they climb back on the truck,
return to school.
From beginning to end,
nobody tells them
who they are welcoming.

FREEDOM – 宋壮壮 – FREIHEIT

FREEDOM

a person
face downwards
lies on the grass
like he’s dead
in the morning
close to the road

at his side
lies a guitar
in bangkok
he won’t freeze to death
maybe
he was just tired
and fell asleep

another ten minutes
they’ll be awake
he and his guitar

FREIHEIT

ein mensch
kopf nach unten
liegt auf dem gras
sieht aus wie tot
in der früh
an der straße

an seiner seite
liegt eine gitarre
in bangkok
erfriert er
wenigstens nicht
vielleicht war er müde
hat sich hingelegt

in zehn minuten
wachen sie auf
er und seine gitarre
