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.

MOSCHEE UND CASINO 《赌场跟清真寺》 MOSQUE & CASINO

MOSCHEE UND CASINO

Moschee und Casino
haben Adam und Eva.
Das Casino in Singapur
am Botanischen Garten
empfängt mit Dali und mit Botero.
Boteros Adam und Eva
stehen am Eingang.
Weiß das der Künstler?
Kunst ist ein zweideutiges Ding.
Macht dich Poesie zum besseren Menschen?

Die Putrajaya-Moschee von Malaysia
steht hoch und herrlich.
Ich falte die Hände.
Eine alte Frau spricht mich an,
fragt mich, ob ich Muslim bin.
Ich sag nichts dagegen,
sie lässt mich ins Innere
und hilft mir Fotos schießen.
Ich weiß nicht, wie man betet,
das sieht sie und gibt mir einen Prospekt.
Es ist recht kompliziert.
In vierzig Minuten ist wieder Gebetszeit.
Hoffentlich kann ich teilnehmen?
Die Männer sind unten, die Frauen sind oben.
Der Prospekt informiert mich,
Adam und Eva waren Muslime.
Adam war gleich der erste Prophet.
Die Moschee hat auf Englisch auch den Koran.
Ich schlage das Buch auf.
Allah hat viele Zeichen gesendet.
Schlaf ist ein Zeichen,
genau wie die Schöpfung,
die Vielfalt von Sprachen und Farben.
Wir haben nicht genug Schlaf auf dieser Reise.
Ich schau hoch hinauf in die riesige Kuppel
und möchte Muslim sein,
versteh auch warum kein Bildnis erlaubt ist.
Eine halbe Stunde später sind wir beim Bier.
Ich frommer Muslim
glaub noch an die Schönheit.
Kunst und Poesie sind Zeichen von Allah.

《赌场跟清真寺》

赌场跟清真寺有什么关系?
都有亚当和夏娃。
新加坡植物园赌场
有西班牙、哥伦比亚
艺术家 DALI, BOTERO
的作品。
BOTERO 的雕塑亚当和夏娃
放在赌场门前
艺术家自己会怎么想?
艺术是很暧昧的东西。
诗歌让你做更好的人吗?
马来西亚行政中心大清真寺
非常壮观
老年纪女人让我进去做礼拜
問我是穆斯林吗
我沉默不否认
可以随便进去
也可以照相。
她看出来我不知道怎么祈祷
就給我指示, 还解释很多。
不到一个小时有礼拜的时间。
男士下面, 女士在上。
欢迎我参加。
她給我的手册裏寫着
亚当和夏娃是穆斯林。
亚当就是第一位先知。
清真寺裏有古兰经
英语版读一片段
上帝安拉給人类的指示。
睡觉也是安拉的指示,
像创造世界所有的现象
包括不同的肤色和语言。
这几天我们都睡觉太少。
站在让你眼睛翱翔的大厅
我愿意做穆斯林
并明白為什麽禁止做偶像。
半个小时以后我们喝啤酒。
我这个虔诚的穆斯林
崇拜艺术的美丽。
美丽就是安拉的指示。

MOSQUE & CASINO

Mosque and casino
both have Adam and Eve.
The casino in Singapore
at the Botanical Garden
greets you with Dali and with Botero.
Botero’s sculptures Adam and Eve
at the gate of the casino.
What would the artist think of this sight?
Art is a rather ambivalent thing.
Poetry makes you a better person?
The mosque in Malaysia’s government district
is a sight to behold.
I am folding my hands.
An old lady asks me if I am a Muslim.
I just bow and keep silent,
so she lets me go in
and helps me taking pictures.
She sees I don’t know how to pray
so she gives me a folder and tries to explain.
There’ll be prayer time in forty minutes.
Men at the bottom, women up there.
She hopes I can make it.
The folder says
Adam and Eve were also Muslims.
Adam was the first Prophet.
The Mosque has Quran editions in English.
I flip through a section.
Allah bestows many signs on mankind.
Sleep is a sign,
along with creation
and languages and different colours.
We haven’t had enough sleep on this trip.
Soaring up with my eyes,
I think being a Muslim is good.
I know why it’s forbidden to make any idols.
Half an hour later we are drinking beer.
I am still a believer
in beauty in art.
Poetry and art are signs of Allah.

people are slow here
says our guide
you have to get used to them
then it’s dark in a jump
and the moon climbs very fast
to her highest position
guess she is happy
to serve Chinese tour groups
so these few years
she runs faster and faster

IN THE EMPORIUM OF PRECIOUS STONES

In the emporium of precious stones
there is a smoking room,
looks a bit like a prison.
Men who need separation
quietly gather,
with their heavy hearts
just for a short spell;
then go on buying things.

VACATION

Let us go diving into the deep.
Last year in August
someone in Tianjin
said one thousand people had died.
He was put in jail.
Let us go diving.
Elections this year in Taiwan,
first female president.
Let’s go now, let’s go.
These few days
someone gave an interview
voice of freedom or something.
Said the city he lived in
was not free,
autonomous region was not autonomous.
Let us go diving now.
He got fourteen years.
He wasn’t the first.
Let’s go now, go.
There’ll be other things
planned for the afternoon.

SHE HAS TO BE PERFECT

In Singapore
we have a new guide.
Her name means “swallow”.
She explains about their laws.
Sounds a bit like Thailand
talks about Buddhism.

“You have to be careful,
you can’t just sit down anywhere.”

We get in very late
but we still call a reading.
Across the street from the hotel
you can sit outside,
you can even smoke.
Long as you don’t toss the butt.
When you order a beer,
one bottle per person may be too much.

Where is the moon?
In Singapore
she obeys the law to the letter,
otherwise they beat her behind.
She steps out of the clouds
in her most perfect poise.

HEROES’ MONUMENT OF MALAYSIA

Was it a glorious thing when they died?
Did they go to war
for peace and freedom?
In World War I
In World War II
In civil war
they hardly had any choice.
In 1966
Malaysia’s prime minister had them erected
a park of monuments.
They already had one from World War I.
With names from Europe, also from India.
Probably officers.
To make this park for all those who died,
all those who gave their lives in the wars.
In 1966.
I was born in that year.
Maybe this monument
was a good idea.

SMOKING

I smoke a cigarette
under a street light
and the cigarette
is smoking me.
We are two smokers
don’t need any language
we are connected
just in this way.
Smoking each other
smoke curling up
in strands and spirals
glistering, swaying
sparkling grey whips.
I am smiling
standing
at the same time
I connect
with the next cigarette
fish out my lighter
and
have a cold
shudder.

LONELY BEER BOTTLES

every hot night watching the Europe cup
I need a few beers in the fridge
let them get chilled
later when the time is ripe
I take them out
and open their caps.
They heave a sigh like they do every time.
Then I watch the game
and finish the beer all the way.
At intermission
I go to the bathroom.
At this time, there are only
these few empty bottles
left standing.
Through the glass
they watch commercials.

IN THE MIRROR

ax watching
his face
skinny, dried up
all his life
waiting to chop
people who part their hair in the middle

RIDER’S INN

he sees in his dream
a few merry thieves
jumping out of himself
and some hired thugs
they each have a smoke
they buy some provisions and pickled vegetables
they make it back into his body
before he wakes up

BIER BEI DIR DAHEIM – 沈浩波

Bier getrunkenShen Haobo
DRINKING BEER WITH YOUR PARENTS

Drinking beer with your parents. How long has it been?
Let us not do the math. Let’s not frighten the bats.
I remember your mother. Didn’t see her afterwards.
Your death was for her, nothing left in her life
to be proud of. You were the perfect daughter,
not only beautiful. Had to be sensible, tame.
Only when mother wasn’t around, then you ran
like a happy young deer. She could not be there when you died.

I am at your deathbed. Both your parents aren’t here.
Your two daughters are not with you. You love them,
you don’t want them to see you this way. Your husband,
your mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and your little sister
surrounding your bed, waiting for death to come down.
I am a stranger, an unexpected guest, somehow representing
the side of the bride. Your mother-in-law praises you,
says you’re her perfect daughter, perfectly fitting into their family.

Drinking beer with your parents. Summer, courtyard was steaming.
Grey tiles on the roof, broken and cool. There was no toilet,
only a vat in the ground, not separated at all.
Your father wanted me to squat on that thing. I wasn’t ready.
I remember the poverty in your family, but you were shining
in everything. Your little brother clinging to me, wanting to play
No-one knew he would grow to be such a bastard.
I am worried your husband will cut him off after you’re gone.

I am at your deathbed. It’s not your own room.
More than one dozen beds. You’re in between dying old people.
A few days ago, they put you with the dying,
with decrepit old people. Like bringing you into the morgue rather early.
You were fully awake, you wanted to live.
I saw you trying to breathe with all your might.
We all know you married a prosperous merchant,
your parents were very proud. Your husband tells me,
choking, you were the perfect wife.

Drinking beer with your parents. First time I had beer.
Your father bought beer for me. Your mother looking at me.
Where were you standing? How did you look at me?
I was too stupid to understand anything. My head was swimming,
I was with your family, I was drinking beer. I was so happy.
We both didn’t know the future. Your husband telling me
as soon as you heard the sound of his footsteps
you would run and open the door for him, putting his shoes under his feet.

I am at your deathbed. Your tug-of-war still going on.
Breath getting hoarse, thunder rolling inside you.
The last dozen hours, trying your family’s patience.
Your husband keeps on talking to me. Says when he met you,
you were like white paper, so clean and pure.
Oh, you were pure beauty right to the end. Your husband says,
you did not want to go, because of your daughters.
He says you were the perfect mother, you gave everything.

ICH TRINKE BIER BEI DIR DAHEIM

ich trinke bier bei dir daheim. wie lang ist das her?
lass uns nicht rechnen, lass uns die fledermäuse nicht aufscheuchen.
ich kann mich an deine mutter erinnern. später hab ich sie nicht mehr gesehen.
dein tod ist für sie, in ihrem leben ist nichts mehr da
worauf sie stolz sein kann. als die perfekte tochter
warst du nicht nur wunderschön, du warst unbedingt tüchtig und sanft.
nur wenn die mutter nicht hingeschaut hat, bist du gerannt
wie ein reh, voller lust. sie hat nicht sehen können wie du gestorben bist.

ich bin bei dir an deinem bett. deine eltern sind beide nicht da.
auch nicht deine zwei töchter. du hast sie lieb
willst nicht dass dich die kinder so sehen. dein mann,
deine schwiegermutter, der schwager, die schwägerin, deine schwester
eine schar von verwandten wartet bei dir.
ich bin ein fremder zufälliger gast, irgendwie
von der seite deiner eltern. deine schwiegermutter lobt dich vor mir,
die perfekte schwiegertochter, ganz eingefügt in ihrer familie.

ich trinke bier bei dir daheim. der hof dampft im sommer.
die grauen dachziegel alt und kaputt, aber kühl. ihr habt kein klo,
nur einen gar nicht verdeckten behälter im boden.
dein vater will dass ich mich da draufhocke. ich bin nicht bereit dazu.
ich weiß deine eltern sind arm, aber du strahlst
und alles glänzt wenn du da bist. dein kleiner bruder hängt sich an mich.
niemand weiß wie er dann später herunterkommt.
ich fürchte nach deinem tod wird ihm dein mann kein geld mehr geben.

ich bin bei dir an deinem totenbett. du hast kein einzelzimmer.
weit über zehn betten. mit alten leuten, die sterben.
vor ein paar tagen haben sie dich in dieses fegefeuer geschoben.
praktisch im vorhinein zur aufbewahrung. dort wo der tod regiert.
aber du warst geistig ganz wach, du hast noch lust gehabt weiter zu leben.
ich hab dich gesehen, du wolltest atmen und atmen.
wir wissen alle, dein mann macht geschäfte, hat einiges geld,
deine eltern sind stolz auf ihn. schluchzend sagt mir dein mann,
du bist die perfekte, die beste ehefrau.

ich trinke bier bei dir daheim. ich trink überhaupt zum ersten mal bier.
dein vater hat für mich bier gekauft. deine mutter schaut mich nur an.
wo bist du da gestanden? wie hast du mich angeschaut?
ich hab das gar nicht einschätzen können, war dumm und versunken
in diesem glück, dass ich bei dir daheim bin, bier trinke bei dir daheim.
wir wissen beide nichts von der zukunft. jetzt sagt mir dein mann,
du hast von weitem gehört, dass er nach haus kommt, von seinen schritten,
hast ihm die tür aufgemacht, hast dich um seine schuhe gekümmert.

ich bin bei dir an deinem totenbett. du bist noch am tauziehen.
dein atmen wird immer heiserer, wie wenn es donnert in deiner brust.
die letzten zwölf stunden ziehen sich noch lange
für deine familie. dein mann plaudert immer wieder mit mir.
sagt als er dich kennengelernt hat, warst du so sauber wie weißes papier.
oh, du warst perfekt und rein bis zum tod. dein mann redet weiter:
du wolltest nicht sterben, wolltest die kinder gar nicht allein lassen.
er sagt du warst die perfekte mutter, mit leib und seele nur für sie da.

COLOR AND SPACE – 君兒 Jun Er

三月 28, 2015

Please take a look at my previous translations of Jun Er’s poems:以前翻譯了《針織廠》 KNITTING MILL《鼠鈔》 RAT NOTES《海棠花開》 CRABAPPLE BLOSSOMS。Today I have translated five poems – two into English, three into German. 今天翻譯了《懷念》、《色與空》、《啤酒花的來歷》、《給不在世的姐姐算命》、《一天》。別的也很喜歡。《歌鐘》、《體內異端》。。。
都因為碰到《熱愛讓我擁抱了它們的名字》很喜歡,一時不能翻譯,就翻到其他的。。。

color and space

COLOR AND SPACE

my son – I hadn’t thought
the embarrassment I had met with
you would know it all over
our skin for example
we are those mesons
another kind
between black and yellow people
white in africa
dark in asia
what if we feel proud of ourselves?
and why the hell not?

ONE DAY

sometimes I admire foreign women
sometimes I shop at taobao.com
sometimes I come home with garbage
sometimes my half soles come out of my shoes

Sehnsucht

Jun Er
SEHNSUCHT

lass mich hier im zimmer sitzen
sehnsucht verstehen
sehnsucht nach fremden phänomenen
leuchten zwanzigtausend jahr
in der ferne
in zwanzigtausend stillen jahren
bist du gekommen
bist verflogen
hast mir lauter blüten gemalt
auf meinen sutren
lass andere generationen
riechen und einander finden
om mani padme hum
lass meine gebetsmühlen fliegen

Hopfen

WOHER KOMMT DAS BIER?

das bier das wir trinken
ist aus gerste gebraut und einem kraut namens hopfen
das kraut hat dornen und viele namen bei uns schlangenhanf
es bringt den geschmack ein bisschen bitter

WAHRSAGEN FÜR MEINE SCHWESTER IM HIMMEL

große schwester
früher hab ich bücher verwendet
jetzt sitz ich am computer
rechne dein schicksal aus
ein horoskop
für jemanden der nicht mehr auf der welt ist
gibt es etwas absurderes
du hattest 46 punkte
ich 58
wir hatten beide zuwenig
12 punkte unterschied
du besuchst die gelben quellen
ich kleb noch am staub dieser welt
faul. schläfrig. wehr mich…
große schwester
schnee auf dem bildschirm
find dein gesicht, deine stimme nicht mehr
wo du jetzt bist
was ist das für eine welt
braucht man dort auch sechzig punkte
um durchzukommen
wie viele wiedergeburten
haben wir dann zuwenig punkte gemeinsam
in der wievielten komma wievielten
wievielten welt
