HEILIGE NACHT – 洪君植 Hong Junzhi

十月 23, 2020

Hong Junzhi
HEILIGE NACHT

Die Mayflower hat keine
Freiheit des Glaubens gebracht.
Plündern und Totschießen
und der Erfolg war eine Nation.
Ich feiere in diesem Land
in diesem blühendsten
von Grund auf gottlosen
New York
die zehnte Christnacht.
Rockefeller Square,
unter dem weltgrößten Christbaum,
unzählige rote Weihnachtsmützen
treiben und schweben
wie wandelnde Seelen.

Übersetzt von Martin Winter im Oktober 2020

伊沙推荐语:

美国是美国,纽约是世界-前两日,在东莞黄江《新诗典》第96场诗会恳谈单元,我等谈及一个话题:纽约大概是全世界最适合写诗的地方,严力在纽约写就明显比在国内写得好,洪君植也是越写越好-新的证据又来了。

新世纪诗典10,NPC10月23日(霜降),3490首,1124人。第10个洪君植(美国)日

况禹点评《新诗典》洪君植《圣诞夜》:能不能写好“纽约”这个题材,是检验一个诗人是不是具有智性和国际视域的重要标志。“掠夺和枪杀成就了一个国家”这句一出来,就预示了作品的力道。到“根本没有神的/纽约”出现,诗的触手逐渐张开,向人呈现出了现实世界妖异奇幻的一面——依然是来自事实的诗意。

梅花驿:与其说是在纽约写诗,倒不如说是在纽约漂泊。动荡和激荡都化作了老洪笔下波涛。也许只有这样才能使孤独的灵魂得到片刻宁静。老洪不是在写诗,就是在译诗,创作量很大。我们也因此看到了不一样世界,和不一样的文化。

马金山|读洪君植的诗《圣诞夜》的十一条:
1、写下心中的,写下看见的,写下思想缝隙中的部分,写下身处其中的世界,尤其是关乎政治的,必须节制,才有力;
2、洪君植,60后,汉韩双语诗人、翻译家、出版人,居纽约。有著作50余部,现美国《HPW国际诗坛》杂志主编,纽约新世纪出版社社长;
3、本诗作者,截止到目前,我们还没有见过面,但是在不断的网络沟通过程中,已经建立起了彼此的信任,由其翻译,帮我出版了首本中韩双语版诗集《此一歌》,我相信,只要我们还是一如既往地写着,认认真真地活着,一定会有机会见面;
4、而于洪君植,在我心中,简直是一个“诗疯子”,因为在我的了解中,似乎除了吃饭睡觉,他基本上都“泡在诗里”,在翻译,在写作,在编诗,一直在;
5、本诗文字背后,隐藏着巨大的世界,道出的是所处之地的本质,还是“我”之所感所想所触及所见,构成了一个国度的精神与现实,笔触尖锐而锋利,沉甸甸,厚墩墩;
6、诗一开头,以花开未带来“信仰的自由”,将一个茂盛的季节直铺而来,尤其是在疫情和西方国家崇尚自由的大背景下,所表达出来的事物,具有丰富而复杂的内涵;
7、而紧跟其后的,是现象,更是本质,在一个没有真正信仰与敬畏的现实社会里,“我”,作为一个外国人,写下生活的当下事物,即是“我”情感的表达,作为异乡客的怀恋,与故土之实;
8、在此还需明确一点,即圣诞节,即西方国家的公共假日,相当于中国的春节,所以在圣诞夜怀想一切,内心的复杂与孤独,可想而知;
9、结尾部分,直击内核,直面现实,直抒胸臆,一个形象的比喻,写下了最具代表性的特点与真实;
10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“以写实,以事物的角度,表现内心的情感,不仅需要高超技艺的修炼,还需要精准的把握与表达”;
11、异乡之诗,内心之声。

 

 

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.

2019
Translated by MW, December 2019

 

 

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)

十二月 25, 2019

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

一月 6, 2019

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.

in a beggar’s bowl

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.
