SIEGER – 李振羽 Li Zhenyu

10月 7, 2022

Li Zhenyu
SIEGER

Unter den Nobelpreisgewinnern 2022
ist kein einziger aus China,
aber China ist der größte Sieger.
Die Zeitung Modern Express verkündet
den ersten Sieger,
die Uni Nanjing.
Einer der Physiknobelpreisträger
sei dort Professor honoris causa.

Die Tongji-Uni Shanghai steht nicht nach,
erklärt sich sofort
zum zweiten Sieger.
Einer der Chemienobelpreisträger
sei bei ihnen Professor h.c.

Die Xi’an Jiaotong University
ist ganz knapp der dritte.
Sie haben auch einen Physikpreisträger
als Professor h.c.

Eine Uni in Hefei
hat Blech gewonnen.
Einer der Physiker
habe dort den Einstein-Stuhl.

Aber diese vier Sieger
sind alle nicht so toll wie der letzte Sieger.
Der Verlag People’s Literature
ist der einzige echte Sieger.
Die Literaturpreisträgerin
wird dort publiziert.

Unter all diesen Siegern
erhält der Verlag
auch die meisten Glückwünsche.
Man wird geradezu überschüttet.
In den Chor der Gratulanten
mischen sich User, die betonen,
der Übersetzer Wu Yuetian
habe sie unterrichtet.

Ein würdiger Abschluss der freien Tage
zum Nationalfeiertag,
auf den allgemeinen Jubel
folgt noch Sukhavati,
die höchste Freude des Reinen Landes.

STOLZ

Unser einziger Stolz
ist, dass wir lachen über Leute in Wien,
die gehen mit Bannern auf die Straße
und protestieren ihr Leben sei schlecht.
Wenn unser Leben nicht gut ist,
gehen wir nie auf die Straße,
murren nur wir sind nicht fleißig genug.
Und manchmal halt,
egal ob wir leben,
dürfen wir gar nicht auf die Straße.

《骄傲》
西毒何殇

我们唯一的骄傲
就是可以嘲笑维也纳人
打着横幅上街
抗议自己活的不好
我们活的不好
从不上街
只埋怨自己不够努力
还有些时候
我们活不活着
都上不了街

A READING 《一份解读》

4月 24, 2022

A READING

people are the same anywhere
anytime, although progress
is very​ very precious
you don’t​ have to be a poet
to realize people and animals
and plants​ and the sun
and the​ earth should be respected

sometimes it’s nice to root for a place​
even a continent maybe​
but to begin a war is wrong
especially if you are big and​ strong

you don’t have to talk about the war
it’s close, but not that close, thank god
we talk about each others’ lives
we are all thankful we’re not in Shanghai

art is good, pictures, music, words
to meet each other and care for another
to read, to listen, to eat and to drink
life is very precious
take care

《一份解读》

人都差不多
无论身处何时何地
虽有进展 这很珍贵
你不必成为诗人
才了解 人类 动物
植物 太阳
地球 应获得尊重

有时 扎根一个地方是好的
甚至也许是一片大陆
然而发动战争就是错
尤其你如此強大

你不必讨论战争
战争很近,却又并不那么近,感谢上帝
我们谈论彼此的生活
我们都庆幸我们不在上海

艺术很美好,图片,音乐,文字
遇见并关心
去读、去听、品尝与畅饮
生命宝贵
且珍惜

ORIGINAL PROBLEMS – 本来的问题 – PROBLEME, DIE DA WAREN

4月 16, 2022

ORIGINAL PROBLEMS

The pandemic has brought original problems
out for all to see
very clearly
War has brought original problems
out for all to see
very clearly
and even faster
economy problems
society problems
relationship problems
ordinary people
what can they do?
we need
to help each other
that’s clear
for all to see
what else can we do?
we thought
society as it was
economy as it was
relations as they were
would go on like that
nothing could stop it
well, we were wrong

MW April 2022

PROBLEME, DIE DA WAREN

Die Pandemie
bringt die Probleme,
die da waren, ganz klar heraus.
Der Krieg bringt die Probleme,
die da waren, ganz klar heraus,
und zwar noch schneller.
Die Wirtschaft, die da war.
Die Gesellschaft, die da war.
Die Beziehungen, die da waren.
Was können die Leute
da tun?
Wir müssen
einander helfen,
das ist auch ganz klar.
Was kann man noch tun?
Früher haben wir geglaubt,
die Gesellschaft, die da war,
die Wirtschaft, die da war,
die Beziehungen, die da waren,
das geht immer so weiter,
das hält niemand auf.
Das ist gar nicht so,
da kommt man halt drauf.

疫情让本来的问题

战争让本来的问题
显出来
特别清楚
还要更快
本来的经济
本来的社会
本来的关系
老百姓
可以做什么?
需要
互相帮助​,
这也显出来
特别清楚​
其他还能做什么?
以前以为
本来的社会
本来的经济
本来的关系
一直会下去
不能阻挡
现在知道
并不这样

FRÜCHTE – 陳倉 Chen Cang

12月 22, 2020

Chen Cang
FRÜCHTE

Ein Dorf in Nepal, die Landschaft ist schön.
Iris und Hiobsträne blühen,
Elefanten rennen über die Hügel,
Buddha wohnt im Herzen der Menschen.
Der Ort gehört zu Kathmandu, zur „Stadt des Lichts“.
Jeder Mensch hier hat nur eine Niere.
Die andere wird keinem Gott geopfert,
sie wird auswärts verkauft, für Leute, die’s brauchen.
Davon kriegt man ein Stück Land und baut sich ein Haus,
und in diesem Haus lebt man dann ohne Sex.
Eine Frau heißt Jida, sie und ihr Mann,
sie glauben, ihr Filterorgan,
das auch ihr Liebesleben bestimmt,
das sei wie die Obstbäume hinter dem Haus,
eines Tags wird etwas wachsen, eines nach dem anderen.

FINALLY!!!

11月 8, 2020

FINALLY! !

Finally!
The people have won.
Decency has won.
Democracy has won.
Hope.
Some people
may feel they have lost.
In the end, the land,
the country, the world
if the world can win,
most people will feel,
finally,
for once,
there is a beacon.

MW November 2020

WHAT?

What am I?
Where are we?
We are on earth.

What am I?
What are we?
What can we do?
I can be a tree.
You can be whatever grows
or crawls or flies up from the earth
and the wind and the rain.
We can all come again
and do what we can.

Some people did what they could
for a while
and Obama did
and it wasn’t enough
change to go round
everywhere in the end.

But yeah, we can
do it again.

HÖHLENRETTUNG – THAILAND CAVE RESCUE

8月 2, 2018

THAILAND CAVE RESCUE

In Thailand
12 boys were saved,
and their trainer.
They had been locked in a cave
by rising water.
A whole football team.
Some were refugees from Burma.
In Europe
in the Mediterranean
it’s not allowed now
to rescue people.
They don’t actively kill
refugees
but they let them drown.
And all the media,
well, it depends what they say.
Interior ministers
are very happy.
But maybe they have
something similar
somewhere some time
in Asia.

MW July 2018

 

THAILAND CAVE RESCUE 2: AUSTRIA

In Thailand,
12 boys
and their young trainer
are rescued
from a flooded cave.
They were 11-16 years old.

In Austria,
a 14-year-old gets shot dead
from behind,
after breaking
into a supermarket.
Another one also gets shot,
survives and gets put on trial
as fast as possible.

And all the big papers
are very fast
on the side of the shooters.
Old enough to steal,
old enough to die,
they chant unisono.
The provincial governor,
some say he made up that song.

The killer
who ran after the boy
and shot him from behind
from very close
was put on trial
more than one year later,
but just for a little.

He knew the boy’ s mother,
they all knew each other
in the poor quarter
of the small town.

The killer lied,
of course they all lied,
said they were in danger,
so he had to shoot.
Actually of course,
the boys were unarmed.

All these details
came out at the trial.
Anyway the killer is still on duty.
Eight months on parole.
No way for the mother
to sue any further,
to get any money.

Some green- leaning left- leaning weekly,
maybe a few other reporters ,
some people didn’t shut up.
So there was a trial,
but he’s still on duty,
and it could be worse,
without truth or trial,
just self- defense,
what they all wanted.

It could be in Austria,
in many places.
Maybe also in Thailand.

HÖHLENRETTUNG I

In Thailand
werden 12 Buben
im Alter von 11-16 Jahren gerettet.
Sie waren in einer Höhle
eingeschlossen.
In Österreich
wird einer erschossen
mit 14
von hinten
auf der Flucht
wegen Einbruch
in einem Supermarkt.
Noch einer wird angeschossen
und schleunigst verurteilt.
Und alle großen Medien stehen
sofort auf der Seite der Polizei.
Der Provinzgouverneur sowieso.
Der Todesschütze ist weiter im Dienst.
Aber vielleicht gibt es das auch
in Thailand,
unter der Junta.

HÖHLENRETTUNG II

In Thailand
werden 12 Buben
im Alter von 11-16 Jahren gerettet.
Sie waren in einer Höhle
eingeschlossen.
Ein ganzes Fußballteam.
Manche sind
aus Burma geflohen.
In Europa
und im Mittelmeer
dürfen Flüchtende
Männer Frauen und Kinder
nicht mehr gerettet werden.
Sie werden
zwar nicht erschossen,
man lässt sie ersaufen.
Und alle großen Medien
naja vielleicht sind nicht alle immer
auf der Seite der Grenzpolizei.
Die Innenminister schon sowieso.
Aber vielleicht gibt es das auch
anderswo.

国际月亮满与不满

国际月亮满和不满

昨天是月食。
听说整个歐洲都看得见,
除非有云。
我们楼一些邻居一块上屋顶看看,
還带各种望远镜,
包括能站的, 很大的。
火星相当大ͺ 红。
月亮用望远镜看得見细节,
像看到地图。
还看到ISS国际太空站。
主要是邻居一块出来看月亮,
很多人外面也出来看。
而前天晚上还是普通的满月。
中国奥地利都一样圆,
每个小地方,
除非看不见。
每次看还是感觉难得。
而且不满其实一样,
每一个人看都不同。
晚上的星星,
白天的云彩
有机会看
同样难得。

DEMOLISH – 海青

Hai Qing
DEMOLISH

On the cover of Fashion Week,
the model has over her chest
a huge Chinese character:
拆 (‘demolish’).
She tells a reporter
it’s a Chinese element.

Egypt and China

2月 3, 2011

A sign in Cairo

Chinese sign in Cairo

Any discussion on forbidden topics is worthwhile. And this topic seems to be at least semi-forbidden on websites easily accessible in China. Social unrest is widespread and continues to grow. China is built on denial. Not on the Nile. There is no river in Beijing. I wonder if there has been any precipitation by now since fall. It was pretty bad in 2000, I remember. They dug huge canals all the way from around Nanjing and Wuhan to bring water for Beijing and Tianjin. Imagine a new canal dug through a city center, 100 meter down. That’s what I saw somewhere in Henan in 2007 or so. Maybe most people don’t take part in uprisings yet. As anywhere, people are concerned with their family and their livelihood. Not with the government. Unless something bad enough happens, you don’t need to take action. Maybe you’ll discuss something, like Premier Wen visiting the Beijing Petition Bureau. They do seem to feel the need to address some problems publicly, and not only through suppression. They continue to suppress many words, such as eleven or civil society. Actually I’m not sure if eleven is still sensitive, but it wouldn’t surprise me, since a certain dissident who was sentenced to eleven years on Dec. 25, 2009, got a lot of publicity lately. Any comparison of China with countries in volatile situations is worthwhile. It’s important not to end up in the Nile, or in denial. That’s a nice little joke I heard from our friend Liam, very nice if you’re far away, I guess. To a very large extent, China is built on denial. The same could be said about other societies, like Austria. But maybe at least there is less denial now than 30 or 40 or 50 years ago. In Austria, maybe. It’s a dialectical process, maybe. There is still a lot of denial. But in China denial is at the base of the system. In private talk, if you’re a friend, people will tell you what they went through in the 1950s, -60s, -70s and so on, or what they are doing now, even if it’s against official policy. But is there enough public discussion of past and present grievances and problems? This is already very close to the question Adam (see below) has put in his post. Adam is right, saying that China is very special and very stable and so on often gets very obnoxious. I am very wary of any big-time supportive international collaboration with institutions in China. Just look at what happened at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2009. The organizers cooperated with China’s GAPP, the general administration of pressure and prodding to toe the government line in publishing. The Ministry of Truth. Maybe they had to, to stage a China-themed fair. And the ensuing scandal was good, except for a few officials. Any kind of discussion is good, any kind of publicity, if there is a lot of denial. I wonder if the Robert Bosch trust fund and other Western sources of funding for cooperation with China learned anything. In December there was a discussion in Germany and Austria, after an article in the Sueddeutsche Zeitung suggested that Chinese Studies institutions staid away from the topic of the Nobel Peace Prize award for a Chinese dissident. Maybe some of them do, if the people in charge are too closely affiliated with the Confucius Institutes situated right inside the Chinese Studies department, as it is usually the case now. In Vienna, this wasn’t a problem. There was a big discussion on January 11 at the Sinology department of the East Asian Institute, one of the most engaged and open events at Vienna University in a while, probably. Bei Ling, author of the Liu Xiaobo biography was there, reading and talking to an enthusiastic crowd, in a very interesting discussion about the roles of intellectuals and public institutions. Professor Weigelin was fully in her element. Prof. Findeisen and Dr. Wemheuer contributed important points on literature and society. Who would have thought that in January, people around the world would spontaneously think of 1989? At least for me it feels like back then, very sudden change sweeping through several countries. So of course there are many comparisons. It is nice to live in exciting times, and important not to end up in the Nile. May they have peace and better times in Egypt soon!
