Yi Sha: NO TITLE #295 [Bukowski]

NO TITLE #295

I have never met anyone
who could express emotion
better than Bukowski.
I also can’t recall
any Chinese poet
who expressed emotion better than me.
A long time ago
from the very beginning
when our bunch of people
we who speak plain language
bravely invaded
the realms of lyrical poetry
made it new, strong
saved them
when they could not keep it up
gave them transfusions
fresh blood
so they survived
put on color
we never forgot
the original purpose
of poetry
is expressing emotion

无题(295)

我没见过有谁
比布考斯基
抒情抒得好
我也不记得
有哪个中国诗人
抒情抒得过我
很久以前
打一开始
我们这些
说人话写口语的人
早已悍然侵入
传统抒情诗的领地
革新、强化、拯救
他们垂死的功能
给他们输入
新鲜血液
令其复生
面带人色
我们从未忘记
诗的本质与宗旨
是抒情
