MOTHER TONGUE – 王姣 – MUTTERSPRACHE

四月 26, 2019

Wang Jiao
MOTHER TONGUE

Mr. Martin Winter
gives a speech on his poetry.
I notice
only when he speaks German
it flows really fast.
Makes me think of
my boyfriend and I when we fight
and I can’t get ahead
so I break loose,
north-Shaanxi-dialect.

Wang Jiao
MUTTERSPRACHE

Herr Martin Winter
hält einen Vortrag über sein Werk
und ich bemerke
nur wenn er Deutsch spricht
fließt es richtig schnell.
Mir fällt plötzlich ein
jedesmal wenn wir streiten ich und mein Freund
und ich auftrumpfen muss
brech ich gleich los
im Nord-Shaanxi-Dialekt.

RETURN TO VIENNA

viennese is the ugliest language
I cannot really tell it apart
vienna was the city of hitler
the city of schirach
vienna was once a city of jews
I am from vienna
viennese is the most beautiful language
vienna was the city of freud
a city of music
I know exactly how it should sound
