Hu Xin

In our native speaker class we have a black teacher
just gleaming white teeth walking towards us
very friendly wants to shake hands one on one
Students next to me fearfully pull in their heads
I jump right up
and give him my hand
and say
All that’s left are panicky faces
like Halloween masks

He Ying

moon calendar, tenth month and first day, midnight
at the crossroads, still a few heaps of burnt paper
swaying in the cold wind
a beggar comes and kneels down, both knees on the ground,
makes a bow
to the rest of a fire
to light a cigarette

majorca feels like taiwan
makes me homesick
at one in the morning
some kind of scent, maybe jasmine
we arrive in a rainstorm
lots of rain next day
sky isn’t dark but it rains
and now there is sun
just a little
and it still rains
then it stops for a while

first snow has fallen
somewhere in the mountains
it’s still october
we hear it on german island news
in a supermarket
also a tree has fallen somewhere
and caused some damage
half of the supermarket is wine
a pirate statue among the bottles
the roman ruins have a good timeline
local culture peaked around 600 bc
then came the romans
then came keith richards
and diego maradona
in between came the arabs not to forget
we ate pizza at the same place
it was really good
after keith or was it ron wood
came everyone else
wifi still doesn’t work
in our apartment
the air-condition-heating
gives me a headache
the air outside must still be wonderful
two girls swam in the pool downstairs today
maybe the rain stopped for 5 minutes
people swam at the beach
of port alcudia
there was a lifeguard
in a raincoat
it’s a beautiful island

just a little bit of sun
in the afternoon
on our last day
yesterday we climbed the local hill
hope the goats are ok
a little goat slipped and fell
running from us
got up no problem, mama was waiting
I discovered a bird sanctuary
right next to the big local supermarket
maia carved a pumpkin
jackie cooked a good dinner
we had fun, the four of us
I was sick in the night
and in the morning
Leo too, now he’s fine
we are in the hotel
everyone says the rain is too much
at least it’s not like in the east
people died from the floods
here it’s normal I guess
more or less
we have to pack
and leave early tomorrow
when it’s still dark
