SCHUSSSTRICH

四月 17, 2017

IN CHRISTLICHEN LÄNDERN

in christlichen ländern
hat man das allerschlimmste gesehen
jesus und seine jünger
feierten den letzten seder
dann wurden sie vergast & verbrannt
keiner ist auferstanden
außer manche
in der erinnerung

SCHUSSSTRICH

manchmal hört man
manche meinen
man solle einen schlussstrich ziehen
es gibt umfragen
was kann man alles ziehen im leben?
das schaffnerlos?

was kann man ziehen
vor der vernichtung
nach der vernichtung
vor der vernichtung
schussstriche könnte man ziehen
linien

BOTSCHAFT

die botschaft von ostern
ist fürchtet euch nicht
singt und freut euch
sagt es weiter
etwas ist stärker
als alle macht
als alle staatlichen wächter
fürchtet euch nicht

TEMPLE OF HEAVEN – 侯馬

Hou Ma
TEMPLE OF HEAVEN

at the echo wall of the temple of heaven
he told everything
what he wanted to say to the old man in heaven
what he wanted to say to his wife and kids
what he wanted to say to himself
told it all to the wall

actually he didn’t tell anything
to the wall
what he shouted was:
—- can you hear me?
—- can you hear me?

HIMMELSTEMPEL

An der Echowand am Himmelstempel
hat er alles gesagt
was er Gott sagen wollte
was er seiner Familie sagen wollte
was er sich selbst sagen wollte
er hat alles erzählt

Eigentlich hat er der Wand
überhaupt nichts erzählt
er hat nur gerufen:
— Hörst du mich?
— Hörst du mich?

MISSED – 馬非 – VERPASST

MISSED

This summer in Xiaozhai in Xi’an,
on a pedestrian bridge.
A friend from college,
my former girlfriend,
she took my picture but didn’t know it.
Only later she went through her mobile.
She sent it to me, then I realized,
we had been there at the same time,
but missed each other.
She took a photograph of a beggar,
I was in there by accident.
You can see on the photo,
I passed the beggar,
gave him no money.

VERPASST

im grad erst vergangenen sommer
xiaozhai in xi’an, eine fussgängerbrücke
dort hat mich meine frühere freundin
und studienkollegin fotografiert
sie hat es zuerst nicht gewusst
später in ihrem handy hat sie mich entdeckt
mir das foto geschickt dann habs ich erst gewusst
wir waren gleichzeitig am selben ort
und haben uns ausgerechnet verpasst
sie hat einen bettler fotografiert
mich dabei zufällig auch aufgenommen
auf dem foto sieht man
ich geh an dem bettler vorüber
und geb ihm kein geld

WARSAW

八月 3, 2015

Warsaw bicycleWARSAW

the eagle is not beautiful
the shadow of the eagle is
they have a chapel for Katyn
across from uprising square
the uprising was very brave
they won at first
the Red Army was there
just across the river
but the Red Army waited
then the Germans came back
they razed Warsaw City
the Red Army waited
that was in 1944
before that was the Ghetto
the Ghetto uprising
Stalin’ s culture palace stands in its place
in the place of the Ghetto
Katyn
was in 1940
tens of thousands of Polish officers
killed by Soviet intelligence
Ukrainians too
they have a chapel for Katyn
across from Uprising Square
tens of thousands of names
and a beautiful eagle
they say
I like its shadow

Warsaw eagle
SUNSHINE IN WARSAW
Jacqueline Winter

A beautiful summer morning. Biking through the historical center. The bike return station is next to the monument of the 1944 uprising against the Nazis. HOW many dead and wounded, while the Red Army literally stood by on the outskirts of town? And the city dynamited and emptied of its population…you would never think it, looking at it now.
Across the street, inside a church, a simple and gut- wrenching memorial to the Katyn massacre victims. With a side memorial for the Smolensk plane crash of 2010, which I fail to understand. Must ask a local where they see the connection- if they do.
And what a tough people: exiled, murdered, bombed, map redrawn…yet they rebuilt splendidly from the rubble while still dirt- poor and were the first to put up meaningful nonviolent resistance to the Soviets back in 1980. And had free elections as soon as they could.
Swinoujscie – Swinemünde had public exhibits around town about their common history with Germany, bilingual. A strongly German city which was bombed flat 55% for being a naval base. No mention of the pre-war German population in Warsaw, though…
The Warsaw “Stalin cake” / Palace of Culture and Science is still on the grounds of the Jewish ghetto. That uprising was in 1943. A few meters of markings on the ground to show where its outer wall once stood. That is all.

ATTITUDE, EMPATHY AND SO ON
Martin Winter

People are trying to get by everywhere. First World vs. Third World (or Second World) creates issues of privilege. Just like different kinds of background, experience, heritage make for issues of disconnect within a common country or region. Why are people stupid enough to vote for or even work with racist rightist arseholes in Hitler-spawning Austria? Austria-Hungary-Germany whatever? My friends in China try to get by. Like people everywhere. Some get to express how they detest the state they are in. Some more than others. Like people anywhere, more or less. Some have their audience, as famous poets or fiction writers. Yes, things have improved very much in Taiwan, and in China there is the same repression going on in some ways. Yes, everyone is taking part more or less, including foreigners. All in all, foreign media is a good influence. Most of it. Everywhere probably, in every country, reporting from any outsider’s stance or background can be very refreshing. I was privileged in Taiwan and in China, in Eastern Europe, even in America. On the other hand, I am in between. Every day I talk and work with people and texts from different worlds. It’s a great life, all in all.
