FAX POEM – 伊沙 Yi Sha

FAX POEM

In 1994
before Bukowski died
he wrote his first and only fax poem
in the poem he writes
“this is my first FAX POEM
it’s too late:
I have been
smitten.”
In the same year
I received an invitation
from Norway
requesting particular poets all over the world
to send their poem in their mother tongue
at one particular day
to one particular number
The host on his side would collect these poems
stick them on a huge wall
this poetry wall would be kept forever
I have forgotten
which poem I sent
it was through the telephone clerk
at my parents’ work unit
I don’t know if Bukowski
wrote for this activity
if he did
it was the only time Old Bu and I
came together
alive

《传真诗》

1994年
布考斯基死前
写下了平生第一首传真诗
他在诗中写道:
"这是我的第一首传真诗。
太迟了:
我已经
被击昏。"
正是在那一年
我也接到过一个邀请
来自挪威
希望全世界受邀的诗人
都在某个特定的日子
向某个指定的传真电话发诗
用各自母语创作的诗
主办方收到这些诗
会集中贴到一面大墙上
那面诗墙将被永久保存
我当时发的哪一首
已经忘记了
是托父母单位的电话员
发送的
我不知道布考斯基
是否为这个活动而写
如果是
那便是我与老布
平生惟一的交集

DREAM #1477

dreamt about the state
of a poem
not the content

three stanzas
every one
well written

but over all it was no good

《梦(1477)》

梦见了一首诗
的状态
而非内容

它分三段
每一段
都写得挺好

但整体并不好

SING ALOUD TOGETHER WITH THEM:
LET US DIP IN TWIN OARS

In 1985 fall and winter semester
I had just started at Beijing Normal University
I was transferred
to the university primary school
to one 4th class
to help in their activities
Before I left
these sweet primary students
gave me all sorts of presents
The most beautiful girl
(from Beijing Film Studio parents)
gave me a photo
of Clark Gable,
said “You look like him”
(Good heavens!)
Oh, never saw her again,
this girl who was born
in 1974.
But in my heart
she grew up,
grew up into a great beauty,
high school and college,
working
love, marriage, kids
a whole happy life

《与他们一起高唱
让我们荡起双桨》

1985年秋冬
刚入北师大
我被派到
北师大附小
四年级某班
帮助他们搞活动
临别时
可爱的小学生
送我各种小礼物
班里最漂亮的女生
(北影厂子弟)
送我一张
克拉克.盖博的照片
说:"你长得像他"
(我的天哪!)
哦,后来我再没见过
这位1974年出生的
小女生
后来她在我心中
长大了
长成了大美人
上中学上大学
然后工作
恋爱结婚生子
过着幸福的人生

DREAM #1474

She appears in your dream
meaning
she loves you
even if you don’t accept love
her love
in your subconscious
you will cherish her
and
full of thanks

《梦(1474)》

她在梦中伏现
意味着
爱你者
即使你不接爱
她的爱
你的潜意识
也会珍存她
并且
满含感恩

DREAM #1473

I am a short-track
Croatian
speed-skater
have snatched gold
at the winter olympics
on the winner’s podium
they are playing my hymn
and flying my colors
I help the runner-up
the Russian contestant
to wipe the blood at his mouth
where he was hit in the race
from my blade

《梦(1473)》

我是一名
短道速滑选手
克罗地亚人
一举夺得了
冬奥会冠军
领奖台上
国歌奏响
国旗升起
我为亚军得主
俄罗斯选手
拭去嘴角的血迹
他是在比赛中
被我的冰刀
划伤的

MEAL

I have always thought
a pile of meat
does not constitute
a meal
and neither does
a pile of greens
got to have grain
grains are the soul
of Chinese cooking
only grain
fills me inside

《饭》

我始终认为
一堆肉
不能构成
一餐饭
一堆草
也不能构成
一餐饭
还是要有谷
谷才是
中餐之魂
我胃里的
镇物 ​​​​

CRAZY-GROWING VINE

The vine on our balcony
grows like crazy.
Martin Winter’s son,
our friend young Leo
has christened this stalk
“Lincoln”.
Sturdy Lincoln leans out
far into the courtyard
summons the people
to free the slaves
and wage war
against an unjust system.

For a moment
I hear shots ringing out

《疯长的葡萄树》

伊沙

我家阳台上的
葡萄树在疯长
那棵被维马丁之子
乐友小朋友
命名为“林肯”的
葡萄树
状若总统先生
探出身子在演讲
号召人民
解放黑奴
向不合理的制度开战

某一瞬间
我听见枪声响起

CHILDREN’S DAY

We were resting
in an old pavilion
at Qujiang South Lake
with Martin and Old Professor Ren.
A little boy
jumps out at Martin:
“Grandpa, hello!
It is June 1st, Children’s Day!”
Suddenly it’s like I see
myself almost 50 years ago
hiding in a thicket at Xingqing park
throwing rocks at a foreigner
as Chairman Mao’s little Red Guard

《儿童节追记》

那天在曲江南湖
古亭中
与任老、马丁小憩
一个小男孩
忽然跳到马丁面前:
"爷爷,你好!
今天是六一儿童节!"
我恍然看见
将近五十年前的我
躲在兴庆公园的树丛里
朝老外丢石子
是毛主席的红小兵

BAMBOO LEAVES ALL OVER THE WORLD

This Dragon-Boat Festival
I remember another Dragon-Boat festival day
12 years ago
in Rotterdam
where my enemies cannot go
A poster on a utility pole by the road
reminded me
it was Dragon-Boat day
I had a date with Arthur Sze
and Ye Mimi from Taiwan
for a late-night snack at that Chinese restaurant.
I was going to treat them
for Dragon-Boat Zongzi.
But in the end
we didn’t go,
don’t know why.
Actually that’s really too bad.
If we had eaten
Zongzi that night
that wonderful poetry festival
would make my enemies’ eyes
go red even now
even more

《天涯何处无粽叶》

在这个端午
怀想起那个端午
十二年前
在仇伊者见不得的
鹿特丹
路边电线杆上
中餐馆的促销海报
提醒我
今天是端午节
我跟美籍华裔诗人施家彰
台湾女诗人叶觅觅说好了
夜宵去这家中餐
我坐东请他俩吃粽子
可是后来
不知什么原因
没有去成
今天回想起来
颇觉遗憾
如果当晚
吃到了粽子
那届诗歌节的美好
便会翻倍
无能的仇伊者的红眼病
还会加剧

DREAM #1466

I
am busy behind a cannon
The ammunition piled there
isn’t physical cannon balls
but an abstract
idea: responsibility

在一门大炮的后面
忙碌着
那里堆放的不是
有形的炮弹
而是无形的抽象的
概念:责任

VAN DER BELLEN 2017

ich möcht auch diesmal
van der bellen wählen
vielleicht kann ich ihn bei den grünen hinein schreiben
wär das dann ungültig
oder doch bei der spö
oder sogar bei der kpö+
oder auch bei den neos
deshalb war er ja so erfolgreich
und weil am ende doch genug aufgewacht sind
sogar welche von der övp
gar nicht wenige
aber diesmal
wird sichs leider nicht ausgehen.
wir hätten alle früher
draufkommen sollen

WAHLTAG – 維也納市政府選舉 – ELECTION DAY IN VIENNA

十月 11, 2015

WAHLTAG

am wahltag schauen sie ein bisschen traurig
die kandidatinnen
es sind junge frauen mit gutem gebiss
sie haben sich alle sehr viel bemüht
die partei ist ok
es sind die grünen
der zettel der roten war ziemlich gut
für diesen bezirk und für diese gegend
das schlimme an dieser wahl sind die blauen
sie haben meine tochter verstört
wir wohnen neben dem hauptbahnhof
dort sind viele flüchtlinge
meine tochter hat oft mit den kindern gespielt
ich bin froh dass sie da sind
obama hat ihn nicht bombardiert
den assad vor zwei jahren
und mit putin verhandelt
was wäre wenn
tunesien hat den friedensnobelpreis
besser als für obama und für die eu
und die chemiewaffen sind auch noch da
was wäre wenn
jedenfalls sind die flüchtlinge am hauptbahnhof
österreich ist besser als ungarn
die ganze eu ist durchgebeutelt
vom kapitalismus
oder wie man das nennen mag
thatcher und reagan wurden gewählt
was haben die nicht alles zerstört
the world is still reeling
am wahltag schauen wir ein bisschen traurig

ELECTION DAY

they look rather sad on election day
candidates on their posters
their teeth are ok they are young women
they have tried their best
it’s a nice party
the greens are the nicest party in town
the reds in this district and on the new streets
they had a leaflet talking to us
the blue meanies are evil
they are not even funny
we live in new houses next to the station
our daughter likes playing with refugee kids
she was disturbed by the blue meanies
all over europe people are helping
some are disturbing
everything’s on the move
at least more than before
we are trying our best
at least some of us
I am the one who can vote in our family
I met some new people
we had a good time at the polling station
getting acquainted
at least some of us
have looked rather sad on election day
