STUPSEN – 乌城 Wu Cheng

十一月 21, 2020

Wu Cheng

Unser Herr Schuldirektor leitet in der Elterngruppe
Aufnahmeregeln weiter,
nach dem „1+3“ – Kultivieren-Experiment.
Da passiert mir,
dass ich seinen Kopf doppelklicke.
In der Gruppe erscheint:
„Ich habe Direktor Wang angestupst.“
Ein anderer Elternteil
stupst ebenfalls Direktor Wang an.
Nacheinander stupsen
über 30 Erziehungsberechtigte
Herrn Direktor Wang an.

1977 – 何金 He Jin

五月 11, 2020

He Jin

It was a beautiful time,
it was a fucking bad time.
We supposed-to-be-educated youths went off to exams
and more than half fell through.
If I had managed to fill in those two blanks,
I would have survived.
Who was Cao Xueqin?
Who was Qin Keqing?

Forward to now, Cao wrote Dream of the Red Chamber, everyone knows.
Qin Keqing, she’s one of 12 beauties
in the mystery novel,
the one most tight with Sister Feng.
In that blank space,
I drew a cow turd.
In the space for Cao Xueqin, because I was mad,
I wrote he was the third little girl
of old Cao
in our backyard.
