VON KARTOFFEL ZU KARTOFFEL

Geh möglichst wenig aus untertags,
lange stehen unter der Sonne
macht dich am Hinterkopf schwarz.
Auch möglichst nicht dort wohnen, wo es warm ist,
die Lust, auszutreiben
musst du unterdrücken.
Außerdem darfst du nicht schlaflos werden von den Maschinen Tag und Nacht,
ja nicht in Panik
diskutieren.
In unseren Körpern gibt es Stärke,
das ist unvermeidlich.
Also mach dir nicht dauernd alle mögliche Sorgen,
Kartoffel werden sonst sauer.

Übersetzt von MW im Mai 2021

新世纪诗典作品联展#晓角#(1.0)

伊沙推荐:本诗来自于侯马的助攻,说明地方官开始关注当地的诗歌创作了。本诗的视角令我眼前为之一亮,太新鲜太新颖了!其次是笔触,显得与众不同。作者只有十八岁,她似乎已经进入了中国诗坛,这让我不免有些担心,但愿她成长得好。

0530况禹点评《新诗典》晓角《土豆告诉土豆》:与众不同从“土豆”开始。这样一首诗,如果主持人不剧透作者只有“十八岁”,相信很多人都会往远至杜甫(中)、近至象征派(西)的写法去猜测。其实土豆就是土豆,谜底依旧是谜面,才华也不一定非靠隐喻或象征来支撑。一首诗落笔不俗、视点清新,这就够了。别希望一个新诗人复杂,也别暗示一个新诗人“你的大前途将是混沌、复杂”——这是我给那些评论此诗和为此诗叫好的声音说的,问题是——有几个真会用心听?

黎雪梅读《新世纪诗典》之晓角《土豆告诉土豆》:喜感十足的一首小诗,读完让人忍俊不禁,太有意思了!如同一个童话故事里主人公的对白,也只有童心未泯的诗人才能这样地驾轻就熟,如同长者似的谆谆告诫,用的是天真烂漫的语气,水晶般纯洁的心灵,满满的新鲜感外带嘎嘣脆,真是妙不可言!

庞琼珍读《新世纪诗典》晓角《土豆告诉土豆》:很新鲜的诗,土豆与土豆的聊天记录,需要与土豆多深的情缘才能写出来。内蒙的土豆是极好的。记得小时候,北方冬季的蔬菜极少,爸爸单位的车队出发,去内蒙拉回土豆,河北拉回大白菜,这就可以过冬了。本诗写出了土豆的生命历程,成长中要注意的问题,也折射出诗人小小的年龄里面体验的种种不易和艰辛。但是,这些苦难并没有扼杀她过人的天赋和才华,本诗为证。感谢侯马的关注和推荐,祝福晓角。

黄平子读晓角《土豆告诉土豆》

——《新世纪诗典》3710

土豆告诉土豆

晓角

尽量不要在白天出门
阳光下久站
脑后会发青
也尽量不要在温暖的
地方住
发芽的欲望
必须压制
还有,日夜听见机器轰鸣
不要失眠
不要惊慌
议论
我们身体里都含有淀粉
这是没有办法的事
最后不要老是想各种事情
(包括以上)
土豆,会变涩

黄平子读诗:读诗的时候,发现诗卡和手抄有几处不同。最明显的是诗卡里少了打括号的那句,我冒昧地根据手抄作了以上的小调整。“尽量不要在白天出门/阳光下久站/脑后会发青”,这是说阳光会诱使土豆发芽。“也尽量不要在温暖的/地方住/发芽的欲望/必须压制”,这是说温暖会诱使土豆发芽。“还有,日夜听见机器轰鸣/不要失眠/不要惊慌/议论/我们身体里都含有淀粉”,这是说土豆正在接受人类的加工,被人类制成各种食品。“这是没有办法的事”,这些事情包括:1、“不要在白天出门”。2、不要“阳光下久站”。3、“不要在温暖的/地方住”。4、“发芽的欲望/必须压制”。5、“不要失眠”。6、“不要惊慌”。7、不要“议论”。8、“我们身体里都含有淀粉”。“最后不要老是想各种事情/(包括以上)”这是再次告诫,有强调作用。“土豆,会变涩”,这是原因。土豆变涩了,就不好吃了。“发青”、“发芽”,这对土豆来说,是多么幸福的事情。“机器轰鸣”、“失眠”、“惊慌”这对土豆来说,是多么恐怖的事情。因为土豆的幸福是人类的不幸,因为土豆的恐怖是人类的幸福,所以土豆不但不能议论,连想也不能想。“我们身体里都含有淀粉”,这是土豆存在的价值,也是土豆所有不幸的根源。晓角写的,是一堆逆来顺受,任人宰割的土豆!晓角今年18岁,其小档案说:“因家庭缘故未能上学,受外公等人帮助自学识字……喜欢萧红、鲁迅、王小波。是个颓废的人。”晓角也是一颗顽强的小土豆啊。这是“土豆告诉土豆”的话,也是土豆告诉晓角的话,更是晓角告诉大家的话。

FIRST FLOOR – 赵壮志 Zhao Zhuangzhi

6月 23, 2020

Zhao Zhuangzhi
FIRST FLOOR

On the dormitory’s first floor,
conditions are worst.
Moss on wooden doors,
rust on window bars.
From outside, passing the windows,
I see three special rooms,
with their own bathroom,
doors and windows aluminum,
Simmons mattress.
A black student
wielding a club
to chase a mouse
that ran in from the Chinese students next door.

6/12/20, Zhanjiang

CORONA – IN WIRKLICHKEIT

《月亮》

【奥地利】维马丁

月亮
被孤立地
高悬在外

月亮
被孤立地
高悬在外
在云层后面
越过花木
天又冷了几分

WIRKLICHKEIT

In Wirklichkeit ist es immer wie jetzt.
Halt nicht auf einmal,
doch in der Schwebe,
ein bisschen versetzt.
In Wirklichkeit ist
dein Leben nicht fest,
sicher ist gar nichts,
egal was wer sagt.
In Wirklichkeit bist du Tanz und Musik.
Wir sind was sich dreht
oder steht
und jemanden sucht
solang es noch geht.

MW 1. April 2020


CORONA

Actually it’s always like this
for many people.
You live from one day to the next.
Only now it’s a big deal
for the whole world
for a while.

MW April 1st, 2020


疫情

其实生活一直就这样
对很多人,所有的现象。
要躲起来,
要避免警察。
要依赖邻居,
要怕一些邻居。
每天每一刻都可能被传染,
要互相照顾。

1 POEM/DAY

One poem per day
takes nothing away,
I want to say.
But everything takes time,
every drug,
every mask,
every care.
So one poem per day
could take away
whatever else you would have had.
But then you could
hear it again,
whatever you do,
if it was good.

MW March 2020


GRINDING

The world is grinding to a halt.
So are we all madly in love?
Or have we come to our senses
about the climate
between each other?
About working together?
We don’t have a choice.
And we don’t have a choice
in hoping it will soon be over.
And we still let them set our clocks.

ACHTSAMKEIT

Achtsamkeit
hat sehr viel mit Neunsamkeit zu tun,
das sagen alle großen
Neunsamkeitslehrer.
Aber die großen Samenbanken,
die fangen frühestens
ab Zehnsamkeit an,
mit Ihnen zu reden.

DELIBERATE DEMOCRACY

5月 16, 2017

DELIBERATE DEMOCRACY

everyone wants deliberation
what do workers want
more money
more rights
less accidents
less insecurity
less misery
less discrimination
what do employers
and state agents want
nothing
in comparison
they have everything
only in certain cases
certain uncertain cases
they are very certain
everyone needs deliberation
rather than killing and maiming
each other
china has talked about democracy
very much
at least since 1919
austria too
so let us deliberate
how to give workers
in certain uncertain cases
maybe just a little bit
of deliberation

MW May 2017

 

From a small conference on Monday, May 15. Law studies and Petition Office representants from China. Vienna University law faculty and East Asian studies professors. Well-meaning reports on labor conflicts and “deliberative democracy”. Meanwhile we’ll have another big election in Austria in October. Last year was just the figurehead president. Could have been a Neo-German alt-right figurehead. It was close. Would have been ok with the foreign minister. Also with the governors of Burgenland and Lower Austria, the provinces around Vienna. They are working with the xenophobe extreme right Freedom party. Or looking forward to that. No, we don’t rally around the republic against neo-fascist and anti-European forces like they do in France. Although we finally tried last year and succeeded. And our president now is a Green independent. Yeah, that’s where my poems come from. China and Asia, Austria and Europe. Taiwan. Czech Republic. And so on. Like The Sun Also Crashes. That was in Vermont, right before the last US mid-term elections.

FELL DOWN AND DIED WATCHING THE MOVIES:寒玉

FELL DOWN AND DIED WATCHING THE MOVIES

as a bonus for the workers
at the all men’s dormitory
the mine partitioned the uppermost floor
and set up rooms for visiting spouses
from the opposite roof
you could see any move that went on inside
that was a secret all mine workers knew
one summer
one man fell from the roof
everyone said
he fell down and died watching the movies
