IRGENDWANN IN DER NACHT

irgendwann in der nacht
fängt der mond an zu singen
wenn er voll ist und sich
hinter wolken versteckt

SOME TIME LATE AT NIGHT

some time late at night
the moon starts to sing
when she’s full of drink
and hides behind clouds

SCHWERE BODENVERSALZUNG IN WEITEN TEILEN NORDCHINAS

Xing Hao
SCHWERE BODENVERSALZUNG IN WEITEN TEILEN NORDCHINAS

manche sagen es hat zu tun damit
dasss sie damals lauter staudämme gebaut haben

nanyao ist auch keine ausnahme
die ernten sind schlecht
das wasser kann man kaum trinken

aus dem brunnen kommt es bitter und salzig
man spart sich beim reiskochen
salz und soyasauce

das ist bei drei mahlzeiten pro tag
insgesamt doch nicht wenig geld

MY HIDDEN UGLINESS – 西娃

四月 6, 2017

Xi Wa
MY HIDDEN UGLINESS

I carry two bags of vegetables
coming out of Oakleigh supermarket
and crash into a guy with brown skin.
I wasn’t careful.

I apologize to him,
and he invites me for a drink.

My first reaction
is after the drink
if he wants to sleep with me what shall I do?

He does have deep eyes and a tall nose,
and smells of vetiver,
my favourite scent.

If he had white or yellow skin,
I wouldn’t refuse him outright
in this way.

I thought I had already moved beyond
racism.

Yes, that was before I had concrete thoughts
of going to bed
with one of them.

MONDGEDICHT

MONDGEDICHT
(für eli, juliane und vati. for our friends. 新年好!)

der mond
ist ein gedicht
finster
voll
mehr oder weniger
manchmal hat er
einen haken
manchmal hat er
so viel getrunken
dass er unheimlich
leuchtet
oft ist er einfach
nicht erreichbar
etwas mit seinem handy
soll er den roten knopf drücken
oder den grünen?

Martin Winter_Cover_WebMOON POEM

the moon
is a poem
brooding
obscure
fully
wasted
sometimes
sporting a hook
sometimes
drinking so much
she is fearfully
glowing
often
she’s not available
something with her mobile
should she press the red button
or maybe the green?

THE EVENING AFTER THE VOTE IN AUSTRIA

十二月 5, 2016

THE EVENING AFTER THE VOTE

we were happy.
we were relieved.
we were very, very, very,
verily glad.
we were exhausted.
we ate.
we drank.
the ex-neo-nazi
got to rave once more on tv:
the anti-fascist candidate’s fans
had called the ex-neonazi’s candidate
a nazi!
the neo-nazis’ hopeful himself
now twice defeated
wants to run again in six years.
today it is
the day after.
best wishes for austria!

AM ABEND DANACH

wir waren froh
wir waren erleichtert
wir waren sehr, sehr, sehr,
sehr, sehr sehr froh.
wir waren erschöpft.
wir haben gegessen.
wir haben getrunken.
der ex-neonazi
durfte sich auch noch im fernsehen aufregen
dass man seinen mann
einen nazi genannt hat.
der junge mann selbst
will noch einmal antreten.
heute ist erst mal
der tag danach.
alles gute!

STRONGMAN

strongman, he is not a bird
strongman, he is not a plane
what is strongman all about?
strongman makes it strong for you
strongman, he makes all the shots
strongman, he makes all the drinks
strongman, he makes every sauce

strongman, chairman get along

strongman makes you extra strong
makes you swallow his strongsong
don’t tell me you didn’t know
