auf einmal schreit meine kleine schwester

Tang Xiaomi dead sweet potatoes

Tang Xiaomi

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

heute ist karfreitag
ein strahlender tag
viel schöner als viele andere tage
wolken und regen, aber nicht viel
wolken und regen heißt etwas anderes
in der sonne ist es recht warm
der wind ist noch kalt
heuer ist ostermontag der tag des grabes
in china
mein vater ist grad 75 geworden
unser sohn ist 10, unsere tochter ist 12
als baby war sie ein engel
wenn sie nicht schrie
vieles war nicht leicht
vieles ist ungewiss
vieles klingt vielversprechend
manches ist jeden tag fast dasselbe
unsere tochter schreit immer noch
und ich auch
heute ist karsamstag
eine zeitlang war es wärmer als gestern

empty graves - Yang Jian

Yang Jian

there are many empty graves in my country,
in empty graves nothing is there,
only earth and more earth.

you are afraid of ghosts,
you fear the ghosts are going to stir.
in our hearts we have buried those empty graves.

in autumn you cover your grave with weeds,
and when it breaks out,
you hide it right where its shows its first page.

in my country,
if the grass has a sound, it’s the sound of the wanderer,
it’s just the sunset sound in the desert.

my country is full of empty graves,
in empty graves nothing is there,
only weeds and more weeds.
