IRON MAN – 吴雨伦

七月 4, 2017

Wu Yulun
I HAVE SEEN IRON MAN’S SOUL

one guy in our dormitory bought us a model
made in usa
must be 30 centimeters
silver all over
golden shine, lines very clear
you can take him for real

he has to stand on our table
dirt all around him
coke-bottles, mcdonalds
fruit bags, rice box, waste paper
sprite cans. one heap of chaos.

he has to live in our garbage
can’t see his way out
flies round his ears
no wonder his fists are so tight
his face speaks of wrath
though he can do nothing

but this cannot go on forever
one day
his soul will break out
under the flesh
of the steel

one pitch-dark night
his angry eyes
will burn to cinders
squalor and chaos
whatever holds him
burn everything

《那天我看到的钢铁侠的灵魂》

吴雨伦

宿舍里买了一个钢铁侠模型
美国制造
大概30公分
纯银色外观
金属光泽 纹理清晰
几可以假乱真

它被放在桌子上
但是桌上通常很乱
可乐瓶,雪碧罐,麦当劳
水果袋子,剩饭盒,废纸
桌面都是些污秽的东西

钢铁侠被迫生活在垃圾堆里
垃圾挡住了他的视线
苍蝇萦绕在它的耳畔
难怪它紧握双拳
满脸愤怒
却又无可奈何

但它不能永远这样
终有一天
它钢铁之躯下的魂灵
将冲破
这肉体的束缚

在一个漆黑的夜晚
用它愤怒的双眼
烧尽这阻挡它的
无聊的 肮脏的
一切

Father likes to take a nap…

From New Century Poetry Canon, compiled by Yi Sha 伊沙
Take a nap

Xing Mie

father likes to take a nap

father was born in 1949.
he always liked to fall asleep.
especially now
he dozes off all the time.
it’s like he never wakes up.
actually, mother says
when father was young,
he was very active at the unit.
went there early, came back late.
then, after 10 years of confusion
he never woke up again.
even when he sleeps
his eyes are half open.

And here are two more pictures. Waiting for a miracle, doing crazy things in the meantime. Like going shopping.

Or taking to the streets. Last autumn, all through the first chairmen transition period, China was full of demonstrations and looting because of an island dispute. One Politbureau contender had stumbled over his wife and his police chief. Populist mobilizer for Maoist songs. Then they came up with the Chinese Dream. Same ducks, same colors.
