INSTANT-NUDELN – 蒋涛 Jiang Tao

Jiang Tao
INSTANT-NUDELN

Instantnudeln
sind schon so weit entwickelt,
sie schmecken genau wie im Lokal,
und zwar auch genau so schlecht
wie im Lokal die schlechten Nudeln.

新世纪诗典作品联展#蒋涛#(29.0)

 

伊沙推荐语:口语思维决定了真正的纯粹的口语诗,本诗最后两句给我读笑了:"而且和店里难吃的面
/一样难吃",它不是来自于修辞术,而是出自体验和我说的口语思维。

 

IF A RIVER COST ONLY ONE YUAN – 周焱 Zhou Yan

4月 28, 2020

Zhou Yan
IF A RIVER COST ONLY ONE YUAN

If a river cost only one yuan,
if a river was cheaper than one piece of cabbage,
think about it, that would be exciting.

Think a little more, maybe no, thank you.
Because if there could be such a deal, it would have to mean one of these things:
The river can‘t carry any more water,
I am the only person on earth,
I rule the world,
I am God.

THE SUN ALSO CRASHES

FOR NOTHING

many times democrats do what is right
many republicans do what is evil

so what is the problem?

the rich getting richer
the poor getting poorer
no matter what

one-party systems lack checks and balances
they will be overthrown in the end

so what is the problem?

the rich getting richer
the poor getting poorer
no matter what

maybe this is a reason
people keep walking out of a stadium
when mr. president speaks

in the nation of football
the sun also crashes

the rich getting richer
the poor getting poorer
no matter what

some people see our ethereal bodice
if you do yoga you can be healthy

so what is the problem?

the rich getting richer
the poor getting poorer
no matter what

you can wear beautiful clothes if you like
labor is cheap somewhere in asia
there could be sun enough for your car

so what is the problem?

the rich getting richer
the poor getting poorer
no matter what
