LAWN – 伊沙

LAWN

this green lawn
has life and death

it’s not the lawnmower
parked here
reminding us
grass grows like crazy

jade-coloured
butterflies
fluttering, chasing
one after the other

it’s one green flag
two flying bullets

草 坪

这块绿色的草坪
有生命也有死亡
倒不是
停在上面的除草机
提醒着我们
草儿在疯长
是玉色蝴蝶
在翩翩起舞
一只将另一只
追逐
宛如一面绿色旗帜上
掠过两块纷飞的弹片

RASEN

der grüne rasen
der tod und das leben

es ist nicht
der rasenmäher geparkt auf dem rasen
der uns erinnert
es wächst wie verrückt

es sind jadefarbene
flatternde falter
ein schmetterling
jagt den anderen

ein grünes banner
zwei patronen im flug

JUNE – 邢昊 Xing Hao

JUNE

month of long days
and of strong sun
fresh-bought cabbage
curled at the sides
all turned to mush

it’s graduation day
the day I became a worker
at the cement factory
the day of the operation
my wife borrowed money for from everyone
the birthday of
one of my daughters
the day my father
dies

sun like an oven
there is no way to let father stay
after a hurried funeral
I lead my shaking mother back to the cave onto the kang

no sound from mother
all through the month
there is no sound

GUANYIN SOIL – 葉臻 Ye Zhen

ye zhen FERTILITY

Ye Zhen
FERTILITY

sister is six years older than me
in these six years
mother was in her most fertile years
but didn’t bear children

sister was born in 1957
I was born in 1963
mother said
in these six years
so many people died in our village
so many people died in china

mother also said
fertility is not up to a person
it is up to grain
up to rice and wheat
up to leaves and tree bark
up to ‘guanyin soil’
