TALKING TO A TREE, TALKING TO MY HUSBAND – 春树 Chun Sue

Chun Sue
TALKING TO A TREE

there is a tree in front of our bathroom
in winter the tree doesn’t change
beautiful
tall
I stare at the tree
I want to open the window and have a smoke
peaceful like sitting under the tree
in this non-smoking house
on the rim of Berlin
every day I put on a coat
take a look around
try to open the door
take a walk
light a cigarette
smoke
walk back in

春树
对一棵树说

洗手间的窗户正对着一棵树
它在冬天有不变的形态

高耸
盯着这棵树
我想打开窗户抽烟
像在坐在树下一样安详
在这栋不允许抽烟的
柏林郊外房子
我每天都穿上外套
打量四周
找开门
走出去
点烟
抽完
再走回来

TALKING TO MY HUSBAND

“So beautiful!”
I stare into space
then I realize
he is talking about my belly.
Bulging,
20 weeks pregnant.
Actually I don’t think it’s beautiful.
It’s rather scary.
But I don’t want to disappoint him,
so I tell him I share his opinion.

春树
我与丈夫的对话

“多美啊”
我一愣神
才意识到他说的是我的肚子
隆起的
已经有二十周孕期的肚子
其实我觉得一点也不美
还有点可怕
但为了不扫他兴
我还是赞同了他的观点

GIHON RIVER

GIHON

gihon is one of the waters of paradise
under our windows in johnson town.
how long did adam and eve have their residence?
maybe four weeks. not even that.
then they were driven to the next airport.
it was the snake. it was the tree.
it was the apple. it was the gas station
stocked with the cider. the chinese restaurant.
actually god is a jolly old fellow
tells everyone how they founded the place.
god has the breadth. god has the width of it.
maybe the masons one hundred years ago
building their temple, leaving their clocks –
there is that clock down in the grocery store
clock that goes leftwards, numbers all turned –
maybe the masons were like the hippies.
anyway if you are in paradise
most of the time it is just life.
you tell your wife you are in paradise.
you tell your husband, you tell the kids.
they will say nice, hope you are coming back.
then you are gone. maybe you come again.
I’m sure the river stays for a while.
