Yi Sha 《无题(231)》
[UNTITLED] #231

I leave
my very best language
for my poems
for my lectures
when I’m back home
the records are sketchy
my words don’t make sense
I stutter and stammer
I’m hemming and hawing
so my wife doesn’t know
if I have what it takes.

I hope and I pray
everyone else
believes the opposite.

《无题(231)》

我把我
最好的语言
留给了
我的诗
我的讲课
回到家中
语焉不详
词不达意
结结巴巴
吞吞吐吐
我的妻子
因此而怀疑
我的语言天赋

我希望且相信
除此之外的人
是反过来的

Yi Sha 《无题(230)》
OHNE TITEL Nr. 230

ein verwandter arbeitet
in einer großen staatlichen firma.
rennt herum auf der ganzen welt,
vertritt überall chinesische handys.
zum frühlingsfest kommt er zu uns,
schenkt mir kaffee aus äquatorial-guinea.
ich trink den kaffee die ganze zeit.
heut haben wir ihn wieder zu gast.
ich schenk ihm sein geschenk ein
und bin voll des lobes:
“der kaffee ist herrlich,
ich schmeck die sonne direkt am äquator.”
aber der herr diplomingenieur
weiß wirklich nicht was sich gehört
und korrigiert mich:
“onkel, verzeihung.
ich hab mich vertan.
der kaffee ist aus dem libanon.”
ich bin im dilemma.
der geschmack der sonne direkt am äquator
ist jetzt der geschmack von hizbollah-raketen?
ich hab schon den schaden
aber der sture diplomingenier
lässt mich noch nicht aus.
er nippt am kaffee
und schnalzt mit der zunge.
“onkel, du dichtest zuviel.
der kaffee schmeckt ein bisschen
wie frischer ingwer.”

《无题(230)》

亲戚在一家大国企任职
他的工作就是满世界跑
推销我大中国的手机
过年到我家来时
送我赤道几内亚产的咖啡
我一直在喝
今天他又到我家坐客
我借花献佛
用他送的咖啡招待他
我说:"这咖啡真好
我能喝出赤道骄阳的味道"
这个理工男实在不解风情
执着纠正道:
"姨父,对不起
我记错了
这咖啡是黎巴嫩产的"
我尴尬不已
难道赤道骄阳的味道
得变成真主党火箭炮的味道
我知错了
但这个执拗的理工男
还不肯放过我
他呷了一口咖啡
咂吧咂吧嘴说:
"姨父,你太诗人了
这咖啡就是多了一点
生姜的味道"

Yi Sha 《无题(232)》
[UNTITLED] #232

each time I think of 1997,
when my mother died,
I also drag up a heap
of shards and splinters
of happiness.
a flower opened,
a poem was published.
a happy feeling
you only get
from having survived.
a process of healing,
a walking corpse
with small signs of waking.

2016/3
Tr. MW, 4/4/16

《无题(232)》

每毎想起1997
母亲离去之年
竟然想起一堆
碎玻璃似的
幸福的瞬间
一朵小花的开放
一首小诗的发表
都让我产生一种
幸存者才有的幸福感
哦,那是疗伤的过程
是一具行尸走肉
在一点点苏醒

1983年的马拉多纳
健美、精干
带球生风
在伯纳坞
过掉后卫
过掉守门员
推送空门
赢得死敌球迷的
一片掌声
我的偶像
尚未吸毒
血液纯净
在我发表处子作的
那一年

THE MOON IS FASTER THAN OTHER PEOPLE

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.

TRANSVESTITES IN THAILAND

“Some are half-demon,

I am sure our guide is a man.
He is open-minded, just like his country.
“We in China this, China that …”
I wish his China was a real country.

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.

POETRY READING IS GOOD

Poetry Reading’s good,
Poetry Reading’s good.
In our New Poetry Canon, people’s dignity is high.
System clique’s in the dregs,
state-sanctioned writers scurry with their tails between their legs!

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 also 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.

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.

泰国月亮比别人快
导游说

月亮很快

迎接中国的游客。
这几年大概

还是開詩會。
过马路坐外面
可以抽烟。
只要烟蒂不扔。
点啤酒不能

月亮遵守严厉法律
否则打她的后面
月亮出彩云

《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。

《马来西亚英雄纪念碑》

他死得很光荣吗?
他去打仗都是
為自由、 和平?
第一次世界大战
第二次世界大战
还有内战
他反正都是无奈的。
一九六六年
马来西亚首相让他们做
综合的纪念碑公园。
一战的碑已经有,
上面的名字都來自欧洲和印度。
給所有去打仗献出生命的同胞们
立纪念雕塑、 修一场公园
在我出生的一九六六年
也许好主义。

all around us the world is full of good people.

all these good people at school want to lend you a pencil.
all these good people will rush to pull you up when you fall down.
all these good people won’t help you when you are bullied.
because to the bullies they are also good schoolmates.

all these good people at the army will polish your boots and stand guard for you.
all these good people will lend you money so you can get back to your hometown.
all these good people won’t help you if you are bullied.
because to the sergeant they are also good soldiers.

all these good people at work want to brew you a coffee.
all these good people will listen all night when you’re broken-hearted.
all these good people won’t help you if the boss shouts at you.
because to the boss they are also good workers.

all these good people on the street will pick up your things when you drop them.
all these good people want to give you directions when you are lost.
all these good people won’t help you when your house gets torn down.
because to the government they are also good citizens.

some of these good people will become good police.
some of these good police will protect you against violence.
all these good police won’t help you if there are bad policemen who beat you.
because to the bad policemen they are also good comrades.

all around us the world is full of good people.
all these good people are filled with good intentions.
our world depends on cooperation among these good people.
when it is time we need to stand up by ourselves and step past good people.

這個世界我們的身邊充斥著一群好人。

這些好人在學校會借你忘了帶的鉛筆。
這些好人在你跌倒時會適時扶你一把。
這些好人在你被惡人欺侮時不會幫你。
因為對惡人來說他們也是一個好同學。

這些好人在軍隊會幫你擦皮鞋站衛兵。
這些好人在你沒錢時會借你錢回故鄉。
這些好人在你被班長欺侮時不會幫你。
因為對班長來說他們也是一個好軍人。

這些好人在公司會幫你泡咖啡關心你。
這些好人在你失戀時會熬夜陪你談心。
這些好人在你被上司辱罵時不會幫你。
因為對上司來說他們也是一個好工人。

這些好人在街上會幫你撿起掉的東西。
這些好人在你找不到路時會主動指引。
這些好人在你房子被強拆時不會幫你。
因為對政府來說他們也是一個好公民。

這些好人後來有些變成了好警察杯杯。
這些好警察在你被暴力相對時保護你。
這些好警察在你被惡警偷打時不會阻止他們。
因為對其他惡警來說他也是一個好人。

這個世界我們的身邊充斥著一群好人。
這群好人是這個世界裡一股善的意念。
我們的世界需要這群好人互助且關心。
必要時我們必須自己站出來跨過好人。
