CEMETERY

The cemetery is up on the hill
not far from the madhouse and worse
in the war but a beautiful park.
The cemetery has a beautiful view
on western Vienna, where I grew up
and half of the city.
Cemeteries are beautiful places
cultures of memory. Beautiful stones;
what happens if no-one pays?
Who has a flag, who has an eagle;
which fatherland did he fly and die for
in 1938?
We have two graves, with my mother or father
we visit three. Two years ago my grandmother died,
we were very close.
Who is and who isn’t down in our grave?
The one with our name,
every family has several names;
places and sites, countries and questions.
Up on the hill close to the entrance,
down and secluded not very far.
Vienna has many beautiful hills
and a beautiful river
and many waters and many souls.
Rest in peace. Thank you.

STEIN VOM TOTEN MEER

stein vom toten meer
eiskalt
salzig

dauernd kommt wasser
aus den löchern
auf dem holztisch im hof

stein vom toten meer
steht in seinem eigenen wasser
erinnert mich

dass er lebt

WHY DO I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT DEAD PEOPLE? 唐小米

WHY DO I ALWAYS THINK ABOUT DEAD PEOPLE?

Thinking what they might be doing
but can’t rake them out
drag them out of the ground
like leftover sweet potatoes

Can’t resurrect them
like sweet potatoes I put in a basket

Can’t chop them up
to make countless new people
like making a basket of sweet potato chips

Call them out, what can I do with them?
Actually they also annoyed me
cursed me
beat me
stole my show

Better let them lie
sweet quiet potatoes
all those little graves
crowned with fresh leaves

NACHRICHTEN AUS SCHÜTZENDEN HÖHLEN

wanderwege perfekt angelegt
nach dem wandern am besten obst
in den 80er jahren hat man entdeckt
am 35. breitengrad schmeckt dieser apfel sehr süß
im falun-tempel der tang-zeit
wächst eine föhre aus der pagode
inschriften unter mao zerstört
einer sagt mao schrieb genial
ein alter mönch mag meine haare
einer sagt tianjin tausend sind tot
oder noch mehr

崆洞消息

爬山的路修得很棒
爬山以后很想吃水果
上世纪八十年代发现的
北纬35度苹果真的很甜
唐朝法輪寺
老松树长出宋朝的塔
文革毁了碑文
有人说老毛写得好
有老和尚摸我的毛
有人说天津死了一千
或许更多
