Yu Yifan
NIXE

Kalter Herbstmorgen,
an einer Schnellstraßeneinfahrt
sitzt eine weißhaarige alte Frau
auf dem Boden.
Mit einem gebrochenen Ziegel
hin und her
schabt sie
weiße Schuppen
auf nackten Beinen.

BRATISLAVA II

the danube flows
in the evening people sit in the sun
on the southwestern side
in the summer months
there are concerts on the main square
and in the cafés
the views are great from the castle
and from the liberation monument
and cemetery further up
some of the soldiers buried are women
in the summer months
the synagogue is open
as a museum
they have a nice garden
it is a functioning synagogue
all year round
the only one left
they had bigger ones
even after the war
after the holocaust
now this is the only one left
they built a freeway
interstate quality
right through the old city
it’s a functioning freeway
it’s a beautiful city
shabby in places, but proud
somehow still healing
the danube flows
