1960

Father has caught
two corn thieves.

A young couple, they are kneeling down:
“We have no choice!
Our child is so hungry, crying all night!
There’s not a grain of food in our house …”

Father waves his hands,
letting them go.
Suddenly, he thinks of something
and calls them back.
Picks up a few of the cobs they have dropped,
stuffs them back in their hands.

1960

Vater hat
zwei Maisdiebe erwischt.

Ein junges Paar, sie knien am Boden:
“Wir haben wirklich keine Wahl!
Das Kind schreit vor Hunger die ganze Nacht,
wir haben kein Körnchen Essen daheim …”

Vater winkt ab,
er lässt sie gehen.
Plötzlich fällt ihm etwas ein,
er ruft sie zurück.
Hebt ein paar Maiskolben auf,
drückt sie in ihre Hände.

1960

1990年,两德统一,那些在柏林墙下射杀过越境人士的前东德士兵遭到了审判,他们以国家命令为名为自己抗辩,法官说:你们可以把枪抬高一点点——在中 国,有没有“把枪抬高一点点”的人?本诗给了我一个答案!诗乃小器,诗仅仅是小器吗?本诗来自“河南王”梅花驿的助攻。
Kommentar des Herausgebers Yi Sha:
Ab 1990, nach der Vereinigung von BRD und DDR, kamen ehemalige Grenzsoldaten vor Gericht, die Grenzflüchtlinge erschossen hatten. Sie verteidigten sich damit, auf staatlichen Befehl gehandelt zu haben. Aber der Richter sagte: Ihr hättet ein bisschen höher zielen können. In China, gibt es da Leute, die “ein bisschen höher gezielt haben”? Dieses Gedicht gibt eine Antwort! Gedichte gelten als kleine und nichtige Dinge, aber ist Poesie nicht noch etwas mehr?

NEUES JAHR

Gesang und Schampus, Riesen-Fraß;
Raketen, Böller, rasender Tanz;
Ecstasy, Auszählen, Sex oder Streit, Traurigkeit …
Mit Freude und Schmerz, auf alle möglichen Arten
begeht man Neujahr.
Und jene Leute, die damals den Dissidenten Yu Luoke,
die Dissidentinnen Zhang Zhixin und Lin Zhao,
den Übersetzer Fu Lei,
den 1995 hingerichteten Nie Shubin
und so weiter
verfolgt haben,
die leben alle noch;
schreiten ins neue Jahr rüstig wie ich.

Hinter dem Bahnhof das Hotel Fuchs.
Fuchsgasse hat meine Oma gewohnt.
Die Wohnung war von einem Juden.
Ihr Mann war im Krieg.
Ist im Krieg geblieben.
Eine Wohnung mit Wasser draußen am Gang.
Meine Oma mit Kind.
Sie ist fast verhungert gleich nach dem Krieg.
Läuft nackt aus dem Haus und kommt nach Steinhof.
Steinhof war ein Ort des Schreckens in Wien.
Eine schöne Kirche von Otto Wagner.
Meine Oma hat viel gearbeitet.
Der Jude ist lange noch dort gestanden.
Mariahilferstraße.
Hat hingeschaut zu seiner Wohnung.
Noch mehrere Tage.

Niemand in der Familie.
Niemand den sie gekannt hat.
Der Jude ist tagelang noch dortgestanden.
Meine Oma hat Maria geheißen.

LEADER, HOW COME YOU BECAME A CRIMINAL?

七月 31, 2014

Li Yunqi
LEADER, HOW COME YOU BECAME A CRIMINAL MONSTER?
— surprised to see security chief Zhou Yongkang reduced to a prisoner

For a long time, you were our leader.
On the chairman’s pedestal,
you stood tall and strong.
On the TV screen,
your vigor was shining.
Your voice carried strength,
you were sound as a bell.
You fought against crime,
you were unforgiving.
When you held the reins,
to protect law and justice for our nation,
every man on the street stood behind you.

Now I know, you became a criminal
only because you lost your power.
If you were still up in control,
no-one could do anything,
no-one would ever dare raise his voice.
Every ounce of a doubt
would have been slander.
Every one not behind you
would be against you.
Each one resisting
would be a traitor.

When you were up and running,
who gave you the highest place at the top?
And when you lost power,
who made you a stinking criminal monster?
Black and white, right and wrong,
Great leader and criminal,
it was all very sudden.

If you held onto crime and controlled justice,
should I believe fairness rules in society?
If greed led you all the way to the peaks,
should I believe in a value system?
How about people judged criminals by the criminal,
are they endangering our nation?

How long will it take till we won’t hear any lie in the media?
How long until power isn’t a wrestling driven by greed?
When will it be that my hand,
a small helpless hand,
becomes a shield to cut off crime when it spreads?

领袖,你为何竟成了罪人
作者:李运启

——惊闻周永康竟成阶下囚

 

曾几何时,你是我们的领袖。

在主席台上,

你大义凛然。

在电视屏幕上,

你意气奋发。

你的声音,

是如此铿锵有力。

你对罪恶,

是如此义愤填膺。

你手握重权,

维护着这个国家的法治与公平,

受着小民百姓的拥护和爱戴。

 

我知道,你之所以成为罪人,

只是因为失去了权力。

如果你仍然大权在握,

谁也奈何不了你,

而且谁也不敢有半点非议。

所有的质疑,

都将是诽谤。

所有的不从,

都将是抗拒。

所有的反对,

都将是背叛。

 

是谁,在你胡作非为时,

将你推到了如此高的位置?

又是谁,在你失去权力时,

将你变成了遗臭万年的罪人?

黑与白,对与错,

伟大与罪恶,

颠倒竟只是瞬间的事情。

 

靠罪恶也能掌握国家的法律机器,

你叫我如何相信社会的公平正义?

靠贪婪也能通往权力的巅峰,

你叫我如何相信社会的评价体系?

那些被罪恶者判罚有罪的罪人,

他们真的在危害着这个社会?

 

什么时候,媒体上将再也听不到一句谎言。

什么时候,权力将不再是贪婪的角力场所。

什么时候,我的一只手,

一只无力的小手,

也能成为斩断罪恶升迁的有力屏障。

KNEELING, DEMANDING THEIR WAGES – Zheng Xiaoqiong

Zheng Xiaoqiong
KNEELING, DEMANDING THEIR WAGES

they scurry across like wandering souls at the train station
at the machines the industrial zone squalid rented rooms
their thin female bodies like knifeblades like paper
hair fibres air their fingers cut
iron plastic film etc they’re numb and exhausted
like wandering souls packed into machine tables
work clothes assembly lines their glowing eyes
in the bloom of their youth scurrying into the shadowy stream
they created themselves I can’t tell them apart
I am standing among them no one knows who I am a sack of skin
limbs movement vague expressions one harmless
face after another they are always assembled lined up
forming electronics factory anthill toy factory beehive females
smiling standing running bending curling
each simplified into one pair of hands thies
fastened screws cut iron sheets
compressed plastic curved aluminum cut fabric
their frustrated satisfied weary happy
tangled up helpless lonely expressions
they come from villages hamlets valleys teams they’re intelligent
awkward they are weak timid
today they are kneeling before the shining glass windows doors
black-clad security polished limousines green tangerines
gold-emblazoned factory name shining in sunlight
kneeling at the factory gate holding up a cardboard sign
awkward charakters “give us sweat-and-blood-money”
they look quite fearless as they kneel at the factory gate
surrounded by a crowd days ago they were colleagues
from the same province friends coworkers above or below
women without any expression watching four kneeling women workers
watching four colleagues dragged away by security watching
one of the four losing a shoe watching another worker
getting her pants torn in the struggle silently watching
four kneeling women dragged far away in their eyes
there is no sadness no joy without any expression entering the factory
their tragedy leaving me sad or depressed

跪着的讨薪者

她们如同幽灵闪过 在车站
在机台 在工业区 在肮脏的出租房
她们薄薄的身体 像刀片 像白纸
像发丝 像空气 她们用手指切过
铁 胶片 塑料 … … 她们疲倦而麻木
幽灵一样的神色 她们被装进机台
工衣 流水线 她们鲜亮的眼神
青春的年龄 她们闪进由自己构成的
幽暗的潮流中 我无法再分辨她们
就像我站在他们之中无法分辨 剩下皮囊
肢体 动作 面目模糊 一张张
无辜的脸孔 她们被不停地组合 排列
构成电子厂的蚁穴 玩具厂的蜂窝 她们
笑着 站着 跑着 弯曲着 卷缩着
她们被简化成为一双手指 大腿
她们成为被拧紧的螺丝 被切割的铁片
被压缩的塑料 被弯曲的绿线 被剪裁的布匹
她们失意的 得意的 疲惫的 幸福的
散乱的 无助的 孤独的 。。。表情
她们来自村 屯 坳 组 她们聪明的
笨拙的 她们胆怯的 懦弱的 。。。
如今 她们跪着 对面是高大明亮的玻璃门窗
黑色制服的保安 锃亮的车辆 绿色的年桔
金灿灿的厂名招牌在阳光下散发着光亮
她们跪在厂门口 举着一块硬纸牌
上面笨拙地写着 “给我血汗钱”
她们四个毫无惧色地跪在工厂门口
她们周围是一群观众 数天前 她们是老乡
工友 朋友 或者上下工位的同事
她们面无表情地看着四个跪下的女工
她们目睹四个工友被保安拖走 她们目睹
一个女工的鞋子掉了 她们目睹另一个女工
挣扎时裤子破了 她们沉默地看着
下跪的四个女工被拖到远方 她们眼神里
没有悲伤 没有喜悦 。。。 她们目无表情地走进厂房
她们深深的不幸让我悲伤或者沮丧

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL ….

SUNFLOWER TAIWAN

Chuan Fang Chang
CIVIC EDUCATION

We teach our kids to believe in justice.
You torture righteous children to death
and exonerate murderers.

We teach our kids to believe in peace.
You betray the people’s trust for your profits.

We teach our children honesty.
You swindle voters, they pay the bills.

We teach our kids democracy.
You auction off our rights on the side.

We teach our children respect.
You trample poor people under your feet
and then give out alms.

We teach our children to live in justice.
You wheel and deal and sell off their homes,
let them drink pesticides crawling and crying.

You call our children a violent mob.
Their clothes may be dirty, at heart they are pure.
Your clothes are perfect, calmly you put on your elegant ties
and wrap the filth in your hands.

You say you’re calling on education
but you let police clobber our children
and have them arrested as criminals.

What we taught our children went against facts.
They had to memorize and recite
and write it one hundred times if they failed.

Now they won’t believe what we tell them.

We put down our textbooks
to practice democracy,
exercising a spirit you never knew.

Protect our children!

Don’t let your cold-blooded thinking sentence them to death.

We are fighting to testify for all those pure and gentle hearts.

我們教孩子相信正義
你們將正義的孩子凌虐致死
並判殺人犯無罪

我們教孩子相信和平
你們爲了利益撕裂族群情感

我們教孩子誠實
你們欺騙選民大開選舉支票全民買單

我們教孩子平等
你們設計完美的獨裁政體打造階級

我們教孩子民主
你們私下拍賣主權暴力通過條約

我們教孩子尊重
你們把窮人的生命踐踏在腳底
並佯裝佈施

我們教孩子居住正義
你們用怪手毀壞他們的家園
讓他們吞農藥匍地悲泣流離失所

你叫我們教的孩子暴民
他們衣衫襤褸 心地純淨

你們衣冠楚楚 優雅從容繫上領帶
並包裝你們污穢的雙手

你叫我們愛的教育
卻讓警察用盾牌、警棍鞭飭我們的孩子
並將他們用現行犯逮捕

我們教孩子與現實違背的知識
讓孩子反覆背誦考試
不及格的罰寫一百遍

而今,孩子已不願意相信我們

我們放下課本
實習演練那些你們作不到的民主素養

保護我們的孩子
不被你們的冷血判死刑
我們必須印証那些純潔與善良

And one more Happy New Year of the Horse

一月 31, 2014

yanli_horse

YAN LI! Yesterday I posted his THREE POEMS FROM THE 1980s. Prominent words and themes in GIVE IT BACK (1986), YOU (1987) and YOU (1989) are “love” and “citizen”. The most prominent news story from China in January 2014 was the trial and sentencing of XU ZHIYONG 许志永, a legal scholar and leading activist of the New Citizen movement. Trials, everything connected with rule of law has been very much in the news for a long time in China. See Han Zongbao’s poem 韩宗宝 from fall 2013, for example.

Xu’s statement in court was titled “FOR FREEDOM, JUSTICE AND LOVE“. I was rather surprised at “love” being evoked as a core political value like “freedom” and “justice”. Liberté, Egalité, Amour? Xu’s statement and the accompanying account of how authorities had tried to warn and intimidate him before he was arrested make it clear that he is not only an activist for the rights of migrant workers and for greater openness about public servants’ financial assets. “Can you explain what you mean by Socialism?”, he asks. This is certainly a very important question. China is a Socialist country, at least by name, just like Vietnam, North Korea and Laos. Are there any others? Socialism for China is like Shiite Islam for Iran. But what does Socialism mean, apart from one-party-rule? I think it’s something to believe in, and to practice, to change the fates of working people through actions of solidarity. Isn’t that what the New Citizen movement was trying to do? But Xu has all but dismissed Socialism and has not tried to invoke it as something originally worth believing in. This is understandable, under the circumstances. But can you imagine someone standing up in court in Iran and asking “Can you explain what Islam entails?” Maybe people do it, I don’t know. They probably wouldn’t dismiss religion.

Actually, it is more complicated. I think Xu is testing what is possible. how far the system will go to crush opposition. In his obstinacy he could be compared to Shi Mingde (Shih Ming-te) 施明德 in Taiwan in the 1980s. But Xu is much younger than Shi was in the late 1980s, he was only 15 in 1989.

Xu Zhiyong

“Me:  Aren’t the communist party and socialism western products? May I ask, what is socialism? If a market economy is socialist, why is democracy and the rule of law, which we are pursuing, not socialist? Does socialism necessarily exclude democracy and the rule of law?”

C:你的一系列文章,比如《人民的国家》,整个照搬西方体制,反党反社会主义,你们的组织活动,几个月发展到几千人,你的行为已经构成犯罪,而且不止一个罪名。
我:共产党、社会主义难道不是西方的吗?请问什么是社会主义?市场经济如果是社会主义,我们追求的民主法治为什么就不是社会主义?社会主义必然和民主法治对立吗?关于反党,这个概念太极端,方针政策对的就支持,错误的就反对,而且,我对任何人都心怀善意,如果共产党经过大选继续执政,我支持。[…] 我可能比你更爱中国!你有空可以看看我写的《回到中国去》,看一个中国人在美国的经历和感想。而你们,多少贪官污吏把财产转移到了国外?

C:爱党,爱国,爱人民,三位一体,你不爱党,怎么爱国爱人民?
我:我的祖国五千年了,来自西方的党还不到百年,将来共产党不会千秋万世永远统治,怎么可能三位一体?我爱中国,我爱13亿同胞,但我不爱党。一个原因是历史上它给我的祖国带来的太残酷的伤害,数千万人饿死,文化大革命彻底摧残了中华民族的精神文化,还有就是今天这个党太肮脏,大量贪官污吏,从申请书到入党宣誓都是在公然撒谎——有几个真的要为共产主义奋斗终身?我厌恶谎言,我厌恶为了私欲不择手段,我厌恶一个人在宣誓的时刻也撒谎。

C:敢说不爱党,算你是好汉。考虑到你的主张自由、公义、爱还不错,目的是好的,本着教育的方针,还是希望爱党,放弃公民活动,多和社会各界接触,看问题更客观些。
我:谢谢提醒,我会努力更加客观理性,既看社会问题,也看新闻联播。具体活动如果有不当之处,我可以听取建议,有些行为如果超前了,可以停下来,都可以协商,但是别说什么犯罪。

C:我知道一时半会改变不了你的观点。看过你的档案,你这个人多年来就像一根针一样那么恒定,立场就在那里一动不动。下次接着谈吧。明天后天下午什么时候你觉得合适?
我:明天吧。[words marked by me, see below]

This dialogue between Xu and Beijing State Security official C is very interesting. There is a measure of mutual respect. Xu has spunk, he is brave and obstinate. He mentions “数千万人饿死”, tens of millions died of hunger, as one of the main reasons for not “loving the party” 爱党, as suggested by his interrogator. This dialogue should be very good material for studying Chinese. This section is from the end of the first day (June 25) of Xu’s interrogations in June 2013. You can compare the original to the translation on http://Chinachange.org.  In the translation, I could not access the link to Xu’s patriotic article Go Back To China 《回到中国去》, written in New York a few years ago, but it seems to be available on several blogs readily accessible in China.

I Don’t Want You to Give Up’ – a public letter by Xu Zhiyong’s wife.

Words like “citizen” and “love”, and any other words or means of expressions, actually, become something remarkably different in a work of art, different from every-day-usage, and usage in political statements. I find Xu’s use of “love” baffling. “Love” strikes me as rather imprecise, compared to “justice”, for example. Love, simply love, not compassion or caritas. Not bo’ai 博爱, just  aì 愛, as in Wo ai ni 我愛你。Imprecise, but endearing, as something obviously non-political. And thus closer to poetry, literature, art? Ubi caritas et amor, deus ibi est. All You Need is Love. And so on.

“If I had a hammer I’d hammer in the morning/  I’d hammer in the evening all over this land/  I’d hammer out danger, I’d hammer out warning/  I’d hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters/ All over this land …” Pete Seeger  (May 3, 1919 – January 27, 2014)

The International Federation of Journalists has issued a report on press freedom in China in 2013. Here are two small excerpts:

“On May 3, a woman named Yuan Liya was found dead

outside Jingwen shopping centre in Beijing. Police said

Yuan had jumped from the shopping centre, but her

parents suspected she was killed after she was raped

by several security guards during the night. On May

8 the media was instructed to republish a statement

issued by the Beijing Police and further ordered that

no information could be gathered from independent

sources. All online news sites were told to downplay the

case and social microblogs were required to remove all

related news items.”

This immediately reminds me of SHENG XUE’s 盛雪 poem YOUR RED LIPS, A WORDLESS HOLE, from early 2007. The original is titled NI KONGDONG WU SHENG DE YU YAN HONG CHUN 你空洞无声的欲言红唇. The poem was translated into German by Angelika Burgsteiner and recited in early March 2013 at TIME TO SAY NO, the PEN Austria event for International Women’s Day, in cooperation with PEN Brazil.

“On May 14, media outlets disclosed that several

primary school principals were involved in scandals

involving sexual exploitation of minors. All of the alleged

victims were primary school students. Some bloggers

initiated a campaign aimed at protecting children, but

the authorities demanded that the media downplay

both the scandal and the campaign.”

sokrates sagte in politeia
dass ein einzelner gerecht sei
sei nicht begründet
in einzelnen menschen
sondern in der ganzen gemeinde
in einem gott der ganzen stadt

was du ererbt hast von deinen vätern
erwirb es um es zu besitzen
ererbt von den toten
trebic und györ

mikulov und kosice
friedhof altstadt synagoge
viele juden fielen im weltkrieg
im ersten weltkrieg
für österreich-ungarn
oder für deutschland

was 1944 geschah
deportation und dann die bomben
das leben danach
in kleinen städten ist es recht deutlich

györ ist eine schöne stadt
das essen ist köstlich
die therme ist herrlich
es gibt ein wunderschönes konzerthaus

TRIAL

judge black by white                  judge dusk by dawn

judge swallows by crows                       judge freedom by a bird in a cage

judge elephants by mice                        judge butterflies by the eye of a storm

judge ants on a tree by fish in a bowl

judge times by their fools          judge jobless graduates by golden iphones

judge square by round               judge sea by sky

judge cotton by iron                  judge sheep and grassroots by tanks

the silent lambs, how meek they are!

judge art and writing by dynamite                       judge people by country

judge earth by snow                  judge jews by hitler

judge christ on the cross by judas and the last supper

judge shoes by feet      judge cities by villages

stars and the gunpowder in bullets have never been exposed to moisture

if the chessboard says you’re guilty       then you are guilty

those people who died from secret questioning  those who died

when detained or arrested          they must have seen

the sullied red flag and the hands                       when an experienced questioner

becomes a murderer                  her shining and glorious life

produced how many deaths how many wrongs               written in blood

what kind of terror and torture

most one go through     before he prefers death to life

relentless questioning    what does it mean to him or her

everyone noticed his neck must have been stuck

but on tv they aired his confession

he put on his own trial of his text and the camera

we don’t need courts we don’t need laws            our nation doesn’t need them

’cause the trial is completed       in this giant one-way judgment

everyone can be a criminal         just have to grab them

and put them inside       if they are tough bones their flesh can be done with

one after another gets thrown in jail        who will be the next one

what is it that’s breaking up                    happy days and pleasant scenes

laws appear on worthless paper in restricted public trials

just like catwalks           once the process is in motion

once you get inside       your only trick is to confess

so confess       the grief of an innocent man      small traces of blood

and disgrace     tears are so helpless     just what you asked for

an innocent man in the end        hangs his head in confession     amen

《审判》

韩宗宝

用老人审判孩子 用白人审判黑人

用黑审判白 用早晨审判傍晚

用乌鸦审判燕子 用笼中的鸟审判自由

用老鼠审判一头大象 用风暴眼审判蝴蝶

用缸中的金鱼审判上树的蚂蚁

用小丑审判时代 用土豪金审判蚁族

用圆审判方 用天空审判海洋

用铁审判棉花 用坦克审判绵羊和草根

这些沉默的羔羊多么温驯

用炸药审判文字和艺术 用国家审判人民

用雪审判土地 用希特勒审判犹太人

用犹大和晚餐审判十字架上的上帝

用脚审判鞋子 用村庄审判城市

用高高的堤坝审判洪水 用井审判水

用黑哨审判足球 用城管审判小贩

用公仆审判临时工 用暂居证审判民工

用A审判B 用甲审判乙 用笑审判哭

星星和弹孔中的火焰 一直不曾受潮

棋盘上标明你有罪 你就有了罪

那些死于秘密审判的人 那些死于

拘禁和逮捕的人 必定见过

被污染的红旗和手 当一个审讯能手

成为凶手 她光辉而荣耀的一生

制造了多少死亡和冤屈 血书累累

需要经历怎样恐怖可怕的折磨

一个人才会 宁死不生

无懈可击的审讯 究竟对他意味什么

大家注意到了他被狠狠卡过的脖子

但电视已经播出他的口供

他对着镜头和台词做出了自我审判

何需法庭 何需法律 国家不需要这些

因为审判业已完成 这单向式的强大审判

每一个人都可以是罪犯 不过是抓起来

再关进去 硬骨头可以从肉体上消灭

一个个的人陆续入狱 下一个是谁

有什么在崩溃 大好良辰好景虚设

法律形同废纸 有限的公开审判

仿佛秀场 那木马般的程序一旦启动

只要你进去了 你唯一的招就是招

招吧 一个无罪之人的悲伤 略带血痕

和耻辱 泪水如此无力 如你所愿

一个无罪的人最终 低头认罪 阿门

This poem was written partly in response to the New Express 新快报 / Chen Yongzhou 陈永洲 incident, as the author told me after he showed his poem around on Weibo. However, this is not one of those poems which act like condensed news articles, like Zhao Siyun’s Lily’s Story or Sheng Xue’s Your Red Lips A Wordless Hole (German version see Angelika Burgsteiner’s translation). Han Zongbao‘s poem seems to be less straightforward.

“When an experienced questioner/ becomes a murderer/ her shining and glorious life/ produced how many deaths how many wrongs”

Whose glorious life? The murdering questioners? Why “her”? The female pronoun seems to indicate a particular person. Please look at the comments for answers to these questions.

LILI’S STORY 麗麗傳

十月 9, 2012

Lili

Zhao Siyun
Lili’s Story

My name is Lili Wu
Nine years old
born in North Zhufeng, Tongshi;
Pingyi County, Linyi City district.
When I was very small
My parents were divorced.
I went to live with Mama and Grandma.
Now I am in 3rd grade at South Fuwan primary school.
I like English.
Got 80% in my last exam.
The math teacher is nice to me.
The ethics teacher is nice to me.
But
I haven’t gone to school for 4 months.
On May 30 this year
During Chinese lesson with our class advisor
Vice-principal Jiang Feng
Called me to the music classroom,
Principal Wang Jiasheng was there, too.
They gave me sweet pills
And took off my pants.
Wang Jiasheng put his weewee into my little hole
When Wang Jiasheng came out
Jiang Feng went in
They told me
Not to tell Mama
Otherwise they wouldn’t let me go to school here
And they would kill me and my mom.
They told me many times.
(Then I must have fainted.
Hearing screams
Class advisor Chen Yongxiang came running.
She pulled up my pants.
Then someone lifted me up
Put me in Wang Jiasheng’s car
And brought me to the clinic on the right side of the gate.
My classmate Xiao Wen wrote all this down on paper.
She said
Other kids saw it too.
On that day
I should have been home at twelve
When I came home at 1:30 p.m
Tottering left and right all the way to our door
Grandma had been waiting on the corner for a long time.
When I was home I wanted to throw up
Didn’t want to eat
Mama wasn’t home
She was at the county hospital visiting a relative
Didn’t come home till the evening
My face, hands and feet were all white
That evening
A nice teacher called Mama
Told her I had been raped by Wang Jiasheng and Jiang Feng
I liked going to school before
Now I don’t dare to go
When school is mentioned I break out in sobs
I am afraid
I took a rest at home for a month
On July 2nd, Mama went with me
To the Pingyi County People’s Hospital for a checkup
The medical record was written a follows
Patient complains of small bleeding in vagina
Accompanied by discharge for over one month.
Recent medical history:
Complains of vaginal pain, red spots, much discharge,
feels like another person forced in his sexual organ
Physical examination:
Normal vulva development
Hymen opening greatly slackened
Old fissures at #3, #8
No other …(I cannot read the writing)
Initial diagnosis:
Hymen ruptured, slackened
Actually
From last winter
I had been bleeding
One day I came home in the evening
There was blood on my legs
I wiped it off with paper
Mama has also helped me wipe it
Last winter
Wang Jiasheng and Jiang Feng
Put their cocks into my little hole several times
After school
I felt dizzy, sick, burning
Mama didn’t know then
She took me to the clinic to get some cold medicine
All winter
I got shots, took pills
Mama went to the police
People’s Police Uncles from the criminal police
Went to Xiao Wen’s home several times
So her folks complained at our house
They said Xiao Wen was frightened
And would hardly dare to go to school
So Xiao Wen said her testimony was instigated by my mom
The teacher who had called my mom that evening
Also denied it
The doctor at the clinic said first I was brought in unconscious
But then they said I came in with the principal and two classmates for checkups and shots
Reporters from the province came to our village
They interviewed six children on their way home from school
Five said they didn’t know anything
Another girl
Did not say a word
Our class advisor said
She took a bribe from my mom
She said my mom made her give false testimony
She said I was in class all day as always
She never pulled up my pants
Over one month later
I had another checkup at Pingyi County People’s Hospital
The results were the same
On Sept. 19th, 2012
Wang Jiasheng declared online
The whole affair was all defamation
Jiang Feng also declared
It was a frame-up, made up
To attain some unspeakable purpose
The Pingyi police
Said conditions were not fulfilled
For prosecution

Happy_International_Day_for_the_Blind_Chen_Guangchen!

龍年快樂!

一月 24, 2012

Photo by Ronnie Niedermeyer

祝大家2012龍年一切順利,願比2000年更好!
這幾天記得2000年,那時候我們第一年一直住在北京,住靜安裡,挨著左家莊。2000年天氣特別壞,到六月份才下雨。元旦電視上記得那时候的主席帶火把跑上世紀壇台階。也許有點像去年在台灣慶祝辛亥革命100年的奢侈。台灣聽說費用非常大,很多人大概不覺得記住1911年的一些象徵值得花他們交稅的錢。
那時候在北京很多民房可以看到支持那時候流行的氣功教會、詛咒那时候的主席和执政黨的塗鴉。不只是小區裡牆上樓梯裡等等,也有三環的地下通道等地方。那時候北京還禁止放炮,但越來越多人不管,包括警察。給他們這樣一點的自由就是很好的活門。2000 war auch ein Drachenjahr. In Beijing hat es im Juni zum ersten Mal richtig geregnet, die Sandstürme waren dementsprechend. Jiang Zemin lief am Neujahrstag mit einer Fackel das brandneue Milleniumsmonument hinauf. An vielen Hauswänden, in Stiegenhäusern, aber auch in Unterführungen unter den größten Straßen gab es Graffiti gegen Jiang und die KP, und für Falungong. Feuerwerk in der Stadt war noch nicht wieder erlaubt, wurde aber immer mehr toleriert. Die Blockfrauen fuhren mit einem VW-Bus durch den Hof und kämpften mit einem Megaphon gegen die Knaller. Sie wurden völlig eingenebelt und kamen kaum durch. Aber vielleicht war das 2002, 2000 wohnten wir noch in einem kleineren Hof.
大陸慶祝2000年的費用比起來也許不算多。共產黨慶祝2000年,因為馬恩主義肯定19世紀的西方發展,西方日曆就是共用的日曆。所有國家和地區都要跟著西方發展,並盡量超過西方。只是把黑格爾的歷史觀變成為無產階級當基本的社會制度。其實物產階級都是基本,每有便宜的工人無論什麼社會都不能發展很快。中國大陸改革開放的經濟模式肯定西方19世紀的一些經驗。因為有很多便宜的工人,經濟上到現在一直發展讓人嫉妒。只是價值上還一直停止在19世紀的西方。馬克思、恩格斯講的造反真的有理,可以說就是實現人類最基本的權利,而且馬克思、恩格斯關心整個世界,比現在德國、奧地利等等地方差不多到了週末都是說我們的社會怎樣那樣,所講的“我們”必定是歐盟最富裕的小組,哪怕說窮人,用“我們”這個詞彙就是奧地利說德語看講究的報紙的“我們”,要不就是歐盟裡有功夫搞理想的青年和有錢的大人,還有那兩種之間的一些讀者。馬克思、恩格斯在一百五十年前已經有很開放的世界觀,比現在很多人都開放。那時候馬克思、恩格斯的價值跟2011年在世界各地講革命、講更換社會制度有很基本的共識。他們那時候知道那時候歐美經濟制度的一些短處和限制。2011年、2012年的思想,至少在大部分媒體所看到、聽到的思想,大部分都肯定西方19世紀的想法。很少有人像馬克思、恩格斯挑戰經濟、社會的體制。中國大陸在天安門有世界人民團結起來的標語,是19世紀理想主義者的回音,包括馬克思、恩格斯等等。從現在看到他們是理想主義者,不像20世紀的革命家主要實現自己利益集團小組的權利,順便也講究思想。思想當實現小組的權利的工具。所以天安門二十多年來國際上都當悲劇的象徵。
中國大陸繼續肯定一些西方19世紀的經濟和價值,肯定不是理想的價值。歐洲媒體都比較自由,都報到去年阿拉伯之春、“我們是99%”等等運動都很興奮。但他們有一些基本的限制。2009年奧地利警察故意射死一個14歲的孩子,另一個孩子重傷。他們在超級市場偷東西,沒有武器。奧地利大部分報刊都站在警察的一邊。最後法官雖然判斷追獵和從後面殺死孩子做得不對,但還是讓的那位射手繼續工作,持續帶槍。在經濟方面,奧地利媒體和社會體制同樣顯得很限制。2012年一月份美國 Standard & Poor (名字直接翻譯就是“標準和貧窮”)財政顧問組織判定歐洲很多國家不是最好的投資對象。像他們那樣的財政顧問集團還有Moody’s、Finch等等,都在美國。他們在2011年一直說歐洲很多國家,包括最大的和最富裕的經濟當投資對象都不如美國。同時在無論什麼地區的媒體,無論美國、歐洲、亞洲等等都沒聽說過美國經濟和財政很健康,比法國等等健康的道理。但歐洲各地還是都繼續跟美國財政顧問組織合作,很缺乏講體制問題的討論。
不願意討論自己社會的體制問題,所以每次因為阿拉伯之春、因為艾未未、劉賢斌,因為2011年12月和2011年一月份中國大陸判重刑的知識分子有或大或小一點的新聞,有的讀者也許一時很興奮,但總編輯每次很快都健忘。反正有經濟問題。MIT DEM KOPF DURCH DIE CHINESISCHE MAUER lautet der Titel der Ausgabe 62. Bitte Beiträge (Prosa, Lyrik, Drama, Essay, Foto, Grafik, Kunst) als Openoffice-Dokument (zur Not MS-DOC, maximal circa 10.000 Zeichen/Text) beziehungsweise *.JPG / *.TIFF per email an wienzeile-redaktion@wienzeile.cc Wir können kein Honorar zahlen, die ausgewählten Autoren erhalten Belegexemplare. Das Copyright bliebt wie immer bei den Autoren. Einsendeschluss ist der 25.3.2012
跟你們說過,維也納文學雜誌 Wienzeile 在2012年春天有中華專輯。我們對中華文化涉及的所有地區的問題都感興趣,包括中國大陸和台灣的異族,等於不是漢人或不是漢語、不倡導國語的文化,也包括本人或家族從中國等地區來的,在世界各地生存的文化,只要在某種方面跟中華文化、歷史等等有關係的。德語題名為 Mit dem Kopf durch die Chinesische Mauer。直接翻譯就是人頭穿長城。低頭撞牆本來不是很健康的做法吧。但這幾年來無論中國大陸的官方或歐洲等地方的限制都沒辦法完全活埋社會的一些討論,包括所謂新媒體,像中國的微博。我們編輯這份雜誌請大家提供自己做的文章和圖案。投稿可以用中文或英語,我們會譯成德語。目前我們不能給稿酬,但每位作者會收到幾分雜誌。
而且請你們提供你們想這分專輯也許能收容的作家和信息的線索,多謝!

維馬丁 敬上

May I ask?

Will they let you kill a child?
Do you need an application?
Will they let you work again?
Can you be a good policeman?
Are you going to protect us?
Are you going to deport us?
Maybe you’ll deport our neighbours?
Maybe gag them on the plane
Maybe they are still policemen
Those who gagged and killed that guy
Can they put a child in jail
And deport a nine-year-old
Because he’s from Kosovo
And they say the war is over
Who cares what his friends are saying
Or his teachers, or his town
Here in lovely Austria
You can be a candidate
Candidate for president
If the papers will support you
Say you are for law and order
Maybe you are just a Nazi
Hardly anybody cares
Will you go and work for justice
Come and work for the police
Let me just describe the poster
Justice is the only word
There’s the word, and there are handcuffs
Handcuffs on a pair of hands
Posters are in every school
Many streets and public buildings
Will they let you kill a child?
Do you need to take a number?
If the papers will support you
May I ask another day?

长城

我孑然的身子,
彳亍在万里长城上
饥饿侮辱着我的尊严
我向我的民族伸出了手
巴掌打在我的脸上
指印烙在我的心上
我捶着这悠久历史的脊骨
为昨天流泪
为今天号哭

Die Grosse Mauer

Eine einsame Figur
Wandert auf der Grossen Mauer
Der Hunger beleidigt meine Würde
Ich streck’ die Hand aus nach meiner Nation
Ohrfeigen sind meine Antwort
Fingerabdrücke brennen ins Herz
Ich klopf an das Rückgrat dieser langen Geschichte
Und weine für Gestern
Und heule für Morgen

Ich bin ein Schrei aus der Wut all der Jahre, aufgetürmt rings um mich.

Ich bin ein zersplitterter Diamant.
In jedem Bruchstück ist eine Sonne.

Ich löse mich ein und komm’ wieder zurück.
