INSTRUMENTE – 张韬 Zhang Tao

INSTRUMENTE

am abend um sieben, außerhalb der bibliothek
aus der baustelle
kommen klänge her
von metall auf metall, eine zeit

weiss nicht warum
dort gibts kein licht
es kommen nur zwei figuren
mit helmen hervor

mir fällt etwas ein
bin aber nicht sicher
denn
sie tragen gar nichts
in ihren händen

伊沙推荐:感觉好,乃诗人本色。近期在读一本回忆八九十年代西安大学生诗人生活的书,读到许多对我的好评、质疑、非议。其中有的叫我无话可说,譬如人生价值观成功观不同的,譬如对诗毫无感觉者,后一种情况大多来自于理科男,让我说什么呢?没感觉就是没感觉,感觉这东西,越解释越不是,有则有,没有则没有,缪斯女神毫不含糊毫不留情。

况禹点评《新诗典》张韬《乐器》:工地、声音、金属、音乐、工人、空着的手……诗中有情境,有好奇,还有一点不易察觉的生活的幽默感(或者叫机趣),自成一格。

黎雪梅读《新世纪诗典》之张韬《乐器》:宁静的夜晚,图书馆、建筑工地,特殊的时间与地点,因“金属碰撞的声音”引起了诗人强烈的好奇,这声音来自各种乐器?“那两个人手上/并没有/任何东西”,那乐声从何而来?答案如此扑朔迷离,在“确定”与“不确定”间让人脑洞大开之时,似又为我们唱响了一首《劳动者之歌》。诗人良好的语感,捕捉诗意的能力,对城市文明的思考等等,让我们看到了其不可限量的诗歌未来。

黄开兵:中元节读到此诗,有点诡异的气息。在别的地方,中元节可能没啥存在感,而在两广,是个仅次于春节的节日,一个有神秘气息的节日,它还有个名称:鬼节。

马金山|读张韬的诗《乐器》的十一条:
1、作为诗人,要写诗,不写小说,重点在于写,而不是不写;
2、事物本身会说话,如果它来找你,就必须抓住它,绝对不能辜负了它,因为你辜负它一次,它就会永远消失不见;
3、张韬,男,1997年生,四川绵阳人,2021年毕业于成都大学,大一时在黄宇玲、李华林老师的影响下开始写诗,大二时在张起与李天鹏老师的影响下接触口语诗歌。现居成都;
4、从语言角度到诗性本身的味道,以及诗内所散发出来的意味,很难联想到一个95后诗人的身上,但本诗却就是出自95后之手,不由得让人赞叹不已;
5、本诗从一个画面到另一个画面,在相互之间转换,而又在最后的一个场景之中,欲言又止,让人倍感某种神秘感,或许这就是所谓的诗意情趣;
6、诗一开头,即从时间到场景的描述,再到情节的具体呈现,无不透着现代的感觉与环境气息,是写实,也是本象;
7、第二节,犹如一个镜头的推拉,由远及近,保持着难以说清的效果与感觉,这需要细心的观察力和细腻的感受力;
8、最后一节,不由得让人想到某个历史的瞬间,既叫人内心一颤,又有一种无限的存在感和不忍直视的感觉,深刻而复杂;
9、题目以《乐器》为名,是诗里行间流露出来的味道,是某种程度的自我觉醒与自省,也或许是特定场景下的内心事物的想象力;
10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“汉语言最大的魅力在于自身的色彩、声音和想象”;
11、神秘之诗,想象之诗,玩味之诗。

MARTIN LUTHER, CARD GAMES, NATIONAL DAY

10月 31, 2017

500

ob martin luther
gelebt hat
oder gestorben ist
oder beides
ist nicht besonders wichtig
für mich persönlich
martin luther king
war sehr sehr wichtig
und der vor 500 jahren
hat eine sehr wichtige bibel geschrieben
die immer noch gut klingt
und er war wichtig für widerstand
obwohl dann gegen bauern
und in der hinsicht ist er mir
eh auch nicht wurscht.

TAROCK

wir spielen um geld
weniger als ein euro
wenn du zehn cent gewinnst
an einem abend
ist es sehr schön
wenn du verlierst
ist es auch nicht so schlimm
hauptsache wir treffen uns
am ende der woche
egal wie die wahl war
in der bibliothek
die bibliothek
ist das schönste am haus
wir spielen um geld
du denkst nur an die karten
es gibt ein bisschen weißwein
vielleicht knabberzeug
manchmal wird auch geredet
manchmal gibt es essen
hauptsache es wird noch gespielt

AUSTRIAN NATIONAL DAY

austrian national day
2017
it’s a beautiful day
we stand in line on heroes’ square
along the castle
to get into the president’s quarters
next to us in line
is a guy from syria
his german is very good
he hands me his phone
what he writes in german
sounds like 19th century
but it’s clear and correct
a small scrawny guy
don’t know if his family
is still in syria
at least he can stay
there are 12 words or more
for love in arabic
translating himself
into german or english
he feels rather clumsy
going inside the imperial palace
the president’s office
security is not very strict
our guide from the offfice
in her typical
austrian diction
sounds proud and detached
and somewhat ironic
at the same time
we don’t catch the president
but we see the empress
she looks ordinary
the most powerful woman
maria theresia
now this is the room
where the president receives the government
yes, it’s much smaller than on tv
there was heating inside the building
in imperial times
the whole middle tract
air going up and down
all the way to the basement
very advanced for the time
only one room
has a fireplace
they had 15 degrees in this room
15 celsius in winter
this was the warmest place in the building
largest castle in europe
national day, austrian army
the atmosphere is rather relaxed
tee and good music
for everyone
in the president’s courtyard
regional army band, very good jazz
and of course strauss
children climbing
national monuments
austrian national day
nothing to brag about
at least the president
is not a german nationalist
last year wasn’t easy
all those elections
this year is much worse
next year those fuckers
will be in government
it was a nice national day
it’s a beautiful country

SPRING IS A WONDERFUL SEASON – April 15, 2016 in Vienna. #Schutzbefohlene *

SPRING IS A WONDERFUL SEASON

April 15, 2016 in Vienna. #Schutzbefohlene *
Spring is a wonderful season,
trees spilling their green.
Some are cut, some are planted.
Downstairs across they are planting a park,
used to be train tracks.

Last year we had refugees at the station.

Spring is a wonderful season.

They said it was 90,000 people or so
in all of Austria,
mostly in a few months,
who wanted to stay in this country.
Ten times more went on to Germany.
So many people wanted to help.
Train workers, even police.
Volunteers, often more than enough.
We live in the neighbourhood.
My daughter Maia went down to play with the refugee children.
After a while she knew the volunteers.
It was safe.
The refugees staid down by the station.
Some people from our house took in refugees.

There was discussion to use the shop,
the empty shop downstairs in this new house,
for refugee quarters.
Just for the winter.
That shop has bathrooms and everything.

But then they closed down at the station.
It was in December.
They took them with buses, they said, from the border.
On to Germany.
If you said you wanted Germany, they let you in.
They were building a fence.
So in December, the station was empty.
Maybe Mid-December.
No quarters in our house.
But people still coming in.
Coming up through the Balkans, used to be Yugoslavia.

In early January we played Tarot down in the library.
We have a library in our house.
And we play cards, for a few pennies.
On Friday nights.
We have had readings, and even theatre.
Gudrun and Peter, they built a stage.
Downstairs in the big common room.
We had a night reciting Bob Dylan.
Down you masters of war.

But then in January, there was Cologne.
In Cologne at the train station, on New Year’s Night.
Hundreds of women harassed.
Raped, one or two.
Many foreign men there at the train station.
Not enough police, or police doing nothing.
We should discuss this, one of us said.
We had been playing cards.
What is there to discuss, there ‘s not much in the news.
Maybe social networks did play a role.
I want to discuss this.
These refugees becoming a problem.
What is there to discuss, there’s not much in the news.
These refugees becoming a problem.
A discussion is stupid, without any facts.
So one of us went away in a huff.

Later I was away, I was in China.
In southern China, a poetry trip.
From southern China to Southeast Asia.
Self-organized.
The year before they went to Vietnam.
Wrote some good poetry.
Vietnam wars in the background,
including China attacking Vietnam.
And other stuff, daily life.
Morning routine.

This year I went with them through Southeast Asia.
Poets from all over China. 16 or 17.
One or two guides.
Guides of Chinese extraction.
Thailand, Singapore. And Malaysia.
Then back to Nanning, to southern China.

Poetry meetings, almost every night.
Sometimes more.
One time in the airport.
Plane was delayed, nothing better to do, call a poetry meeting.
Poems written there on the road.

Yi Sha has this dream, before every border.
Dreaming they won’t let him through.
Normally he writes down all his dreams.
Makes for good poetry.
But not this time, he was afraid.
Only when we were safe in Malaysia.

They had a crackdown, in Kuala Lumpur.
There was an attack in Indonesia.
Muslim majority in Malaysia, too.
If the father is Muslim, the child has to be Muslim.
Not Chinese or anything else.
It was not like this before.
At least according to our guide.
They have elections and a Sultan.
Or they call him a King, at least in Chinese.

It’s a beautiful country.
Tribes in the woods.
Our guide lived with a tribe for a week.
For a project at university.
She was very young, has a small child.
She speaks Fukien Chinese.
Mandarin with the tourists, of course.
Liked to talk about sex.
Malaysian men with many wives.
Just a few Muslims, who can afford it.

On February first, I came back to Austria.
Refugees still coming, though not so many.
News had been shifting.
Creating a climate against refugees.
We put a limit on loving our neighbours.
That was a poster.
The foreign minister, he’s very young.
The interior ministress.
She’s not there any more now, she’ll become governess.
Governor of Lower Austria.
And the candidate.
Their candidate for Federal President.

President is just a figurehead here.
Like in Germany.
In Germany, he is elected in parliament.
So he is from the majority party.
He or she.

In Austria, everyone votes for the President.
Everyone should.
Everyone is automatically registered, every citizen.
Nowadays you can vote in advance.
Local district office.
Ballot per mail, or there at the office.
That guy for limits on loving your neighbour won’t make it.
He’s trailing far behind in the polls.
But his policies are federal policy.

They let that happen, the Social Democrats.
They are the majority.
But they let it happen, they are just like the rightists.
News had been shifting.
These refugees becoming a problem.
Some Social Democrats work with the Rightists.
Those other Rightists.
That Freedom Party.
Some Neo-Nazis.
Some Neo-Nazis cling to this party.
Some were just Liberals.
In the 1980s they were for joining the European Community.
Anyway now they are shameless Rightists.
Austria should not be ashamed, they proclaim.
Including old Nazis, including SS.

And Social Democrats think they should work with them.
But they are trailing, the Social Democrats.
Maybe their candidate will fall behind,
though not as far as the one with the limits.
They are far behind, both of them.

Three candidates are in front.
Front-runner is from the Green Party.
They always were for refugees.
And there is a woman.
Not from a party.
A former judge.
Liberal views, for the economy.
Definitely not from the Left.
Those two were leading.
But Freedom Party candidate is closing up.

No, he doesn’t say we are all Germans.
Though he says many things.
Austrians first, don’t be ashamed.
Don’t be ashamed of anything.
Works better than just talk about limits.

So I’ve voted already, ten days in advance.

I’m afraid.
That Freedom guy is worse than Trump.
Similar causes why they are so popular.

Austria is very small.
President is just a figurehead.
But I’m afraid.

Austria becomes Hungary.
Headline in Switzerland, two days ago.
Rightist government, fences.
Italy protesting, not only Greece.
Against Austria, in the EU.

EU has been weak.
Rightist reactions in Eastern Europe.
Rightist rhetoric against refugees.
From Social Democrats, some of them.
EU is weak, was very weak in the Yugoslav wars.

Mid-April sun is shining outside.
Spring is a beautiful season,
trees spilling their green.
Some are cut, some are planted.
Downstairs across they are planting a park.

*Schutzbefohlene means people placed under protection. It is the title of a play by Elfriede Jelinek, the Austrian author who won the Nobel prize for literature in 2004. She wrote the play in 2013. It was performed, by refugees, at University of Vienna on April 14, 2016, when a group of rightists stormed the stage. They sprayed red paint and reportedly injured performers, including children. I wrote the long poem above on Friday morning, April 15. I had not been at the performance and knew nothing about the incident before my text was finished. But I think my text works as background reading, at least.
