EARTH WILLOW – 君儿 – ERDKARTENWEIDE

EARTH WILLOW

Little brother told me
in America on Google Earth
he can see the old willow tree at our old home
when you find the willow
you find our place
30 years ago on holiday from college
I worked in the fields with my father
noticed the willow shoot
begged father to dig it out
and plant it at the water hole in front of our gate.
Now I can’t even put
my arms all around it.
Three people have died in our family
but our tree
has made it onto the map in the sky.

Translated by MW, Sept. 2018

ERDKARTENWEIDE

mein kleiner bruder sagt mir
auf google earth aus amerika
gibt es die alte weide vor unserem haus
wenn du die weide hast
bist du schon bei unserem alten haus
vor 30 jahren in den ferien vom studium
hab ich mit meinem vater im feld gearbeitet
den weidenschößling entdeckt
meinen vater gebeten dass wir ihn ausgraben
und einsetzen beim wasserloch vor dem tor
heute kann ich mit meinen armen
nicht ganz rundherum
von unserer familie sind drei gestorben
aber der baum ist auf der karte im himmel

SEPTEMBER DREAMS – 伊沙

DREAMS FROM SEPT. 2015 – 伊沙

sunrise in Xi'an

Yi Sha
DREAM #553

one phalanx
after the other
of paper soldiers
passing in goose step
paper trucks
passing slowly
carrying
paper rockets
paper tanks
have to have tanks
they drive on their own
armoured vehicles
glued out of paper
and paper air-planes
pass in the sky
just like kites
with broken strings
don’t know where they’re flying
don’t know where they’re going
don’t know whose hands
have glued them together
guess they’ll be burned
on tomb-sweeping day
burned for some ghost
way down below

Yi Sha Last supper at VSC

Yi Sha
DREAM # 555

Shen Haobo and I
are in a coffee shop talking poetry,
talking into the night.
“I am hungry”, says Haobo.
“What do they have here for eating?”
“There is nothing to eat here”, I say.
“But there is a cake shop next door.
Maybe they can deliver a cake.”
“I don’t want to eat cake”, Haobo says.
“I want to eat hotpot.”
”Then we let them bring hotpot”, I say.
So I pick up my phone to call them.
Right away they deliver
a twelve-inch cream cake
in the form of a hotpot
with burning candles.

DREAM # 556

Qin Bazi and I
stay in one room
in a hotel
(this actually happened last month).
Someone barges in,
it is a person
shaped like a cylinder
and there’s a head.
My old friend says:
“Is this a person?
If you look like this
maybe you don’t want to
live as a human …”
I say,
“You have to live as a person.
First you’re a person,
all other possibilities
come afterwards.”

DREAM #557

a computer screen
with my identity card
I have to squeeze myself
my whole living body
into the computer
to substitute that photo
after several attempts
I succeed

DREAM #561

this question on the exam
is harder than I thought
I have to sort every person I know
into:
1) our side
2) other nations

DREAM #564

she wants to stand
making love
with her back to a wall
when we’re done
she is gone
but there’s a shadow
left on the wall

DREAM #565

I’m lying down on a lawn
on my left side
on my right side
then on my back
then on my belly
everything comfortable
I give thanks
to the blue sky above

《梦(553)》

一个方阵
一个方阵
的纸人
正步走过
纸汽车
缓缓开过
运载着
纸导弹
纸坦克
是少不了的
它们自行开过
还有纸糊的
装甲车
还有纸飞机
从天上飞过
像风筝
断了线
不知飞向何方
不知去向何方
不知是谁的手
把它们糊出来
在清明节这天
拿出来烧
烧给阴间的
哪个鬼

《梦(555)》

我和沈浩波
在一家咖啡馆谈诗
谈得昏天黑地
“我饿了”浩波说
“这儿有啥吃的?”
“这儿没啥吃的”我说
“不过隔壁有家蛋糕房
可以叫他们送个蛋糕来”
“我不想吃蛋糕”浩波说
“我想吃火锅”
“那就让他们送个火锅呗”我说
然后用手机打电话
货很快便送到了
12寸的奶油蛋糕
被做成铜火锅的造型
还有点燃的蜡烛

《梦(556)》

我和秦巴子
同住在一家宾馆的
房间里
(这幕情景
上个月才发生过)
有人破门而入
是一个圆柱体的人
有脑袋
躯干是个圆柱体
老秦说:
“这是人吗
长这样还不如
不做人了……”
我说:
“还是得做人
先做人才有
其他可能性”

《梦(557)》

电脑屏幕上
有一张我的身份证
我非要把我
这个大活人
嵌进去
取代那张照片
几番尝试
终难如愿

《梦(561)》

卷面上的这道题
比我想象的难做
将我所认识的人
划归为:
1、自己人
2、非我族类

《梦(564)》

她要与我
站着做爱
背靠着墙
做完之后
她不见了
墙上留下
一个影子

《梦(565)》

我躺在一片草坪上
左侧
右侧
平躺
趴着
都是舒服的
我感恩
头顶上的一片蓝天
