Yi Sha
AVANTGARDE

you don’t know it exists
it’s there

you forget about it
it’s there

you use it
it’s there

you betray it
it’s there

it exists apart
from you

《先锋》

你不知其有
它在那儿

你忘记其有
它在那儿

你利用它时
它在那儿

你背叛它时
它在那儿

它存在于
你之外

MUST CRY OUT

one person
in his 27 years in power
with his own hands
set in motion 55
big and small political campaigns
plunged his country in misery
made his people suffer to death
when I get to know this information
my mouth stands open
I want to cry: “grandpa!”
I want to cry: “grandma!”
I want to cry: “papa!”
I want to cry: “mama!
I want to cry: “uncle! aunt!”
I need to cry out
for all my relatives
all my seniors in my relatives
I want to tell them:
you had it so hard
in your generation
I forgive you everything

ICH MUSS EUCH RUFEN

ein mensch
hat in 27 jahren seiner herrschaft
mit eigener hand
55 kleinere und größere
politische kampagnen in gang gesetzt
sein land ins elend gestürzt
sein volk auf den tod zugerichtet
als ich diese nachricht erfahr
bleibt mein mund offen stehen
ich will rufen: “opa!”
will rufen: “oma!”
will rufen: “papa!”
will rufen: “mama!”
will rufen: “onkel! tanten!”
ich muss alle rufen
alle meine verwandten
alle älteren verwandten
ich will ihnen sagen
ihr habt es viel zu schwer,
viel zu schwer gehabt
ich verzeihe euch alles

《深情呼唤》

一个人
在他统治的27年间
亲手发动了55场
大大小小的政治运动
将其国家拖进水火
将其人民朝死里整
——当我得知这条信息
嘴巴张得老大
我想叫一声爷爷
我想叫一声奶奶
我想叫一声爸爸
我想叫一声妈妈
我还想叫一声
大伯、姑妈、舅舅
我想深情呼唤
我所有的亲人
亲人中的长辈
我想对他们说:
你们这辈子
活得太不容易了
我原谅了你们的一切

REMORSE – 高歌

一月 11, 2017

Gao Ge
REMORSE

The village head in his last stage of anus and intestinal cancer
came to our door one day
to apologize for hitting my mother
and hurting her arm five years ago.
My mother was still too angry
to let him come in.
Told him he could have killed her,
And his remorse would count a fart anyway.

Every time I hear mother mention
that enemy who went sick and died
I always imagine how he looks from behind,
silently walking away.
Then I tell mother,
you should forgive him.

Among all the bad people buried underground,
how many have apologized for their sins?

Tr. MW, December 2016
