DEMOLISH – 海青

三月 23, 2018

Hai Qing
DEMOLISH

On the cover of Fashion Week,
the model has over her chest
a huge Chinese character:
拆 (‘demolish’).
She tells a reporter
it’s a Chinese element.

COLD IN HERE – 朵儿

六月 1, 2017

Duo Er
COLD IN HERE

my dad who died
sent a dream
I set things in motion
padded jackets and quilts, air conditioning
then I thought
maybe add a Little Red Book
when I was small
when Papa raised Mao’s Little Red Book
his face was all red

Tr. MW, May 31, 2017

这儿好冷
朵儿

死去的爸爸
托梦给我
我赶紧行动
棉衣棉被空调
最后想想
还是
带一本毛主席语录吧
小时候
每次看见爸爸高举语录
总是满面红光

이곳은 엄청 춥다
타인

돌아가신 아버지께서
나에게 현몽하시어
나는 재빨리 행동을 하였다
솜옷, 솜이불, 에어컨
마지막으로
여전히
「모주석어록」 한 권을 챙겼다
어린 시절
매번 아버지께서 어록을 높이 들고 있을 때마다
얼굴에는 늘 화색이 도는 것을 보았다

FASHION – 游若昕

You Ruoxin
FASHION

When granddad was small,
herding cattle and sheep was in fashion.
When papa was small,
the fashion was playing war games.
Charge!
Peng peng peng!
Our fashion now
is raising hamsters
and raising turtles.
In our class,
every boy has a turtle,
every girl has a hamster.
Me, I have both.
I like hamsters and turtles.

爷爷小时候
流行放牛放羊
爸爸小时候
流行玩打仗游戏
冲啊
哒哒嘀
我们现在
流行养仓鼠
养乌龟
我们班上
男生大都养乌龟
女生大都养仓鼠
而我
既养仓鼠
也养乌龟

유행
유약흔

할아버지께서 어렸을 때
소나 양을 방목하는 것이 유행이었고
아빠가 어렸을 때
전쟁놀이를 즐기는 것이 유행이었다
돌격
따따따따
우리는 현재
햄스터나 거북이를 기르는 것이 유행이다
우리 반에서
남자애들은 대부분 거북이를 키우고
여자애들은 햄스터를 기른다

햄스터도 기르고
거북이도 키운다

诗篇

七月 29, 2016

Psalter

《诗篇》
(伊沙拍的照片)

 

诗篇。
PSALTER。
诗篇当商标,
诗歌在资本主义
最光明的位置
不是非常好的?
表示中国还真有诗意。

两位模特目光
又傻又恶心,
还有点自豪。
当然我不是
她们的目表,
顾客们也许
很喜欢她们。

整个印象
就是很国际化,
世界五洲
任何商场都可以。
但圣经诗篇当商标
除了中国谁想到?

圣经天使
最早找圣母玛丽,
告诉她怀孕了
要生出耶稣好消息,
那时候玛丽正在读诗篇。
好像没记录她在穿什么。

诗篇很多是大卫写的。
不过以色列
也许不想出这商标。

DREAMING OF LIVING INSIDE A DREAM

Tr. MW, June 2014

Published in EPIPHANY magazine, fall 2014. Go on, look for this great Chinese Dream! I spent October 2014 at Vermont Studio Center with Yi Sha, editor of the daily New Century Poetry series 新世纪诗典. Chun Sue is one of the most well-known figures within this huge independent circle of poets.

MORNING, AVENUE OF ETERNAL PEACE

Little Brother says: dad, Avenue of Eternal Peace
take a good look
This is the road you walked for over 20 years
I am sitting with Papa and Little Brother
I am almost crying
Finally I know
why I like the Avenue of Eternal Peace
Slowly the car passes the Military Museum
and the red walls of Zhongnanhai
and Xinhua Gate
Papa is small now he fits in an ash box
sitting between us
doesn’t take up much space
We pass the Gate of Heavenly Peace
and I see him
He stands on the square
watching us while we’re passing

Why was it so hard to write about you
You’re the son of a peasant
I was born in a village
I am also the child of a peasant
I put on army songs for you all night
Crying my heart out —
I like all that too.
