TV-CAMEL 韓東 KAMEL IM FERNSEHER

七月 2, 2017

TV-CAMEL

on the TV-screen I saw a camel,
soft and fuzzy, getting up from the sand.
tall, soft and fuzzy camel
had just been sleeping. the lamplight,
the people disturbed him. they cuddled him
and he went down on his knees again.
my heart became very fuzzy and furry.
just like the camel was not in the TV-set,
like it was real.
of course it was a real camel.

KAMEL IM FERNSEHER

Ich hab ein Kamel im Fernseher gesehen.
Sanft und weich, aufgestanden vom Sand.
Es hat geschlafen, das Licht von den Menschen,
die haben es gestört. Dann haben sie’s gestreichelt
und es hat sich wieder hingekniet.
Mein Herz ist ganz zart und flaumig geworden,
als wär das Kamel nicht nur im Fernseher,
als wär es wirklich.
Natürlich war es ein wirkliches Kamel.

Yi Sha 伊沙: IN AMERICA, THINKING OF ZHONG PIN

IN AMERICA, THINKING OF ZHONG PIN

at vermont studio center
in front of maverick writing studio
a squirrel
shoots up a big maple tree
I think of you
I want to prove
to the world
in our time
there is still one person
who was unhappy
‘cause he did not become a poet
he could not find peace
that person was you
how does that sound
like a winter’s tale
but here in our world
there are no fairy tales
in fact you told me
25 years ago
“I am a hedonist
and would not be content
to become a poor poet …”
so I have to say
you did what you wanted
you followed the masses
went like all the people
so I relax
and the squirrel
jumps from the tall maple tree
to look at me
in his little eyes
I see only joy
no fear at all
it must be you
your soul is in heaven
