CHRISTMAS MEMORY – 伊沙 Yi Sha

十二月 29, 2019

Yi Sha
CHRISTMAS MEMORY

In the early 1990s
the city I live in
didn’t celebrate Christmas.
The college I teach at did,
a foreign languages campus.
It was more like each class had it’s own party,
students and their foreign teachers
singing foreign Christmas carols
into the air from the classroom building
and into the sky looking for snowflakes
to sing with in harmony.
I would stop and listen,
feeling the civilization and beauty
patching my still raw wounds inside.

圣诞之忆 | 伊沙

在1990年代初期
我所在的城市
是不过圣诞节的
我任教的大学
一所外语学院过
更像是各班在开联欢会
学生与他们的外教
用外语唱的圣诞歌
从教学楼的窗口飘出来
为天空中有或没有的雪花
唱出和声
引我驻足倾听
感觉到文明与美好
内心的新伤在愈合

 

 

 

 

 

STAR WARS (Star Wars 9 & Toy Story 4)

STAR WARS
(Star Wars 9 & Toy Story 4)

The heartbreaking thing
about Star Wars
is when the rebels
have won
and survived
or at least most of them
or some of them
or at least some that you like
and you’re all happy
and you go home
and it really was a good ending
and you go to bed
and the next day
there is your life.

Has the universe changed
since the 1970s of our era?
Or since Jesus Christ
turned bread into fish?
Come on, give the Baby a break,
it is Christmas.
There will be life
and there will be movies.
There’ll be things to fight for,
and evil overlords.
And something beyond.

And some new toy
maybe made out of trash
will ask a companion
how am I alive –
and will hear –
I don’t know.

ROOM SERVICE, Regensburg

ROOM SERVICE

Are you from room service?
Translate into Spanish:
all-inclusive service,
gagged,
biting,
reading stories,
contemporary historical service,
service in the times of the cholera.
Voluntary,
involuntary man-service
in the name of the lord
of the manor
and the overlord
of the hotel chain
in the interests of
the all-Europe hotel
short story competition
and so on.

Make a story
out of who stayed
in Regensburg
before sunrise,
before sunset,
after Ethan Hawke,
what was the name of the bar,
something with Max.
Different city?
No, we’re not mad,
we’re very glad
we found this hotel
at the end of December.
The local paper says
these are six precious days
not including Christmas
to recuperate.
No tourists,
Merry-Turks- street,
what a wonderful place.

Pustet is a very good bookstore.
Better than some biggest book shops in bigger cities.
Churches are free,
just like the thousand year old bridge
with its museum. This used to be
one of two biggest cities in Germany.
They are building a synagogue.

A place of hope. End of a year.
Not a good one.
Re-education camps. War on terror, they say.
War on the people. Not a good story.

Are you from room service?
Please translate into Spanish
and Catalan:
Who translates into English?
Anyway, I write poems.
Some are good stories,
like Mosque And Casino.
I wrote it years ago in Chinese.

Wang Qingrang
HE HAS CHRISTMAS TOO

in the night before christmas
out on park street
in a beggar’s bowl
there are several
red apples

MORNING OF CHRISTMAS EVE

thursday morning. they take out the garbage.
they take out the garbage on thursday morning.
it’s not a holiday. not on paper.
i’ve wondered about this since i was small.
the biggest holiday of the year.
the biggest thing in the world for many shops
and many churches.
thursday morning. they take out the garbage.
