POEMS FROM OCTOBER – Yi Sha 伊沙

Yi Sha
SKY IN SHANGHAI

on our first afternoon in shanghai
there was a symposium
at the academy of social sciences
dinner in another building
eating dinner
I have to go to the bathroom
from the bathroom window
I see the sky
it is just getting dark
the sun is setting
the sky is red
this is a whole different sky
my mother
grew up under this sky
now she and the sky
they have become one

《上海的天空》

到达上海的头天下午
在社科院
开了一下午研讨会
晚餐时进了另一幢楼
进餐过程中
我上了一回厕所
从厕所的窗子
看见上海的天空
正值黄昏
夕阳西下
红霞满天
那是不一样的天空啊
我的母亲
望着它长大
如今已经与它
融为一体

WHO IS GOING TO SLEEP WITH YOU

my wife is on a business trip
asks me on the phone:
“who will sleep with you tonight?”
“a flea”
is my answer

it’s the truth
I had classes all day
had a nap at noon in the teacher’s room
on the old sofa
and got bitten all over

《谁陪你睡觉》

在外出差的妻
打来电话问:
“今晚谁陪你睡觉?”
“一只虱子”
我回答道

我说的是真的
今儿我全天有课
午休在教研室的
一张破沙发上
被咬了一身疙瘩

Yi Sha
DREAM 566

I don’t trust this group of people
they are sitting at a round table
eating their fill from a big plate of living
bugs

《梦(566)》

我不信任的一伙人
围坐在一个圆桌边
在大吃一盘活着的
虫子

Yi Sha
DREAM 567

the chinese men’s basketball team
came back after four years on top of asia
and earned their ticket for the olympics
in rio next year
after I saw the game
I fell asleep, then I saw it again
they still won the cup
but the process was different
even the finals
there was another opponent

《梦(567)》

中国男篮在时隔四年后
重新夺回亚洲冠军
并拿到明年
里约奥运会的入场券
在看完决赛的夜里
我又梦见了他们夺冠
结果是一样的
但过程全然不同
连决赛对手都换了

Yi Sha
DREAM 568

the japanese have occupied china
and installed cameras in every classroom
they need to watch every minute
everything I am teaching
my hate for the japanese
keeps building up
till the day it explodes

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(568)》

日本占领时期
教室里安装了探头
他们时刻监视着
我在课堂上的讲授
我对日本人的仇恨
蓄积着
等待爆发的一天

Yi Sha
DREAM 569

I am a woman
the dissident zhang zhixin
trussed up for slaughter
led to the river bank
for execution
a bullet is coming
it goes right between my brows
but I don’t fall down
I am not dead
I feel electricity
up and down in my body

the sky is blue as never before

October 2015
Tr. MW, 2015

《梦(569)》

我是女人
是张志新
被五花大绑
押往河滩
执行枪决
一颗子弹射来
正中我眉心
却没有倒下
没有死
全身上下
通电之感

天空无比湛蓝

Yi Sha
DREAM 570

I dreamed of a window
what was outside the window
that was the part
I cannot remember

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(570)》

我梦见了
一扇窗子
窗外景色
是梦醒之后
忘却的部分

Yi Sha
DREAM 571

I took a nap
I had a dream
I’m sure of that
but forgot all the contents
the whole afternoon
I couldn’t remember one thing
it felt as bad
as loosing money

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(571)》

午觉时
我做了个梦
我只记得
这个行为
但却忘记了内容
整个下午
怎么想也想不起
就像丢了钱
一样难受

Yi Sha
DREAM 572

I always thought
I don’t like women who are good in sports
but why am I dreaming
of a girl in high school
who sat next to me
she was javelin champion
I feel very nervous
I am very much under pressure
this is the second time
I am dreaming about her
I wrote another poem
about that first time

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(572)》

我一直以为
我不喜欢
体育型的女生
但为什么
当我梦见
中学时代那个
女子标枪冠军
做了我同桌时
却诚惶诚恐
倍感压力
有诗可查
这已经是
我第二次梦见她

Yi Sha
DREAM 574

“this is a contemporary poem“,
says the shanghai poet lu yu
about a piece by qi guo.
“many people write modern poems,
but they don’t write contemporary poems.”
this really happened three days ago
in zhujiajiao water town next to shanghai
at a poetry festival.
now I have dreamed about it
because I have said a while ago:
“if it isn’t contemporary,
it isn’t really a modern poem.”

《梦(574)》

“这是一首当代诗”
上海诗人陆渔在评点
祁国的一首诗:
“大部分诗人
写的是现代诗
而不是当代诗……”

那是在三天前
在上海朱家角水乡诗会上
真实发生过的一幕
重现在我昨夜的梦中
那是因为我早就说过:
“缺乏当代性
绝非真正的现代诗”

Yi Sha
DREAM 578

I am having a fight with my wife.
Some chicken-feather-small thing,
garlic-peal-thing, we can’t stop fighting.

An old holy man
comes down from the sky,
and touches the crown of her head.
She stops fighting with me.

I take a great leap
to jump into the sky
and beat that old man.

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(578)》

我和老婆在吵架
为件鸡毛蒜皮的小事
吵个不休

一个仙翁
从天而降
伸手摸了她的顶
她就不再跟我吵了

我一跃而起
跃上天空
追打仙翁

Yi Sha
DREAM 580

some town in yunnan
probably dali

she is selling flowers
gets me to follow her
into a dark room
then she has changed
into a prostitute

I haven’t done anything
but I am getting caught

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(580)》

云南某城
好像是大理

一个卖花女
将我引诱到
一个小黑屋
摇身一变
成卖淫女

我啥都没干
却当场被抓

Yi Sha
DREAM 581

As a volunteer
I walk into
a camp of syrian refugees
I am very surprised
everyone of them
looks like one of us
from the country I come from.
I know their faces,
they all look like family.

October 2015
Tr. MW, Nov. 2015

《梦(581)》

作为一名志愿者
我走进
叙利亚难民营
惊讶地发现
他们都长着
一张张同胞的脸
把我认作
祖国的亲人

FOLK REMEDY – Yuan Yuan

FOLK REMEDY

Prone to nosebleed since I was small
I have a few methods
to stop the blood.
Ice-cold water on the forehead;
middle finger tied at the base;
raise up your hand on the other side;
block your nose with tissue paper.
It might also be a good choice
to use chalk from the blackboard.
The most unique method
comes from my grandfather, my mother’s father.
Up in the hills or in the fields
suddenly my nose was bleeding.
He never panicked,
took off one shoe (those shoes made from cloth),
one side of the sole
he pressed on my nostril
and kept rubbing.
From the sole, a taste of mud;
a taste of sunlight;
a taste of grass;
a taste of sheep droppings;
a taste of dead insects;
stirred up together
right up my nostril.
I choked and gasped,
the blood shot back up.

GLASTÜR, ICH UND DU: Zwei Generationen 玻璃门、你和我:两代诗人各一首

十二月 13, 2013

GLASTÜR

 

ich schrieb von einem

kristallglas

das sich erhob

 

als eine tür

aus dem wohnzimmer

auf den balkon

 

wie die sonne

wollte sie durch

die fliege knallte

schallend aufs glas

 

ihr betäubtes

zuckendes

brummen

 

noch einmal kam es

ich wusste nicht

ob das knallen

 

dieselbe fliege

war oder nicht

 

der maeterlinck

der 1911 den nobelpreis

für literatur erhielt

dieser belgier

 

hat das verhalten

von insekten

gründlich erforscht

Übersetzt von MW im Dezember 2013

 

Han Jingyuan

ICH UND DU

 

wir nicken uns zu

du mit deinem kopf

und ich mit meinem

dann richten wir beide köpfe gerade

 

wir lächeln uns zu

du lächelst dein lächeln

ich lächle meins

dann ziehen wir die schmerzenden muskeln ein

 

wir schütteln einander die hände

du schüttelst deine hand

ich schüttle meine

dann lassen wir los

 

wir umarmen einander und machen liebe

du machst deine

ich mache meine

wir haben einander nicht kennengelernt

 

so ist das leben

die nacht ist still wie überm bett grellweisses licht

die nacht ist still wie vom schnupfen der schweiss

die nacht ist still ohne signal

im TV

die scheibe brennt mit silberstreifen

 

Übersetzt von Martin Winter im Dezember 2013

《你和我》

我们互相点头

你点你的头

我点我的头

然后各自矫正弯曲的头

我们互相微笑

你笑你的笑

我笑我的笑

然后各自收敛被拉伤的肌肉

我们互相握手

你握你的手

我握我的手

然后彼此抽开

我们搂着对方作爱

你作你的

我作我的

我们彼此不认识

生活老这样

夜晚静得像床头白炽的光

夜晚静得如感冒时渗出的汗

夜晚静得如走失了信号

的电视机

屏幕上剧烈燃烧的银色光斑
