WEEKEND ACTIVITY – 唐欣 Tang Xin

WEEKEND ACTIVITY

Overcast afternoon hot & clingy no wind
a poet comes out of the subway gets on his bicycle
bag on his back with waterflask right on time
appears in the bookstore in the outskirts sits down
with a band of readers around a table a female student
from a media college does the mc women
and children young men smiles
on their faces one after the other reads from a yearbook
of colloquial poetry other customers passing
will probably think a religious circle

So can he be called a missionary
don’t be too optimistic to propagate poetry these years
is actually harder than spreading the gospel

SACRIFICE – 周献

SACRIFICE

There are lost lives
bleeding red
looming over
me and my people.

There is a mission
that has to fail
if I do it
with only one life.

Translated by MW, April 2020
