THEY TALK ABOUT LOVE – 释然 Shi Ran

十二月 24, 2020

Shi Ran
THEY TALK ABOUT LOVE

The two of them are discussing love,
one is like a moth flying into the fire,
one has already been burned and wounded all over.
Finally they are turning to me,
seems like I have
what they don’t have right now.

I remember the experience
when I crawled to the birth bed
and showed my lower body,
the nurse who examined me
was baffled,
she had never thought, at my age
I would have beautiful private parts.
The scar on my abdomen told them,
this body had given birth.

I was lying there
feeling the mirror going in deeply
and the knife scraping pain,
silently grinding my teeth.
As a woman
you are going to
feel the knife, feel the knife.
Love has cooled down
and let me have
my perfect private parts.

KORNKAMMER – 釋然

九月 22, 2018

Shi Ran
KORNKAMMER

die größte kornkammer
in meiner erinnerung
war bei uns daheim im großen zimmer
der sarg
den opa für sich bereitgestellt hat
beim korn rausnehmen
haben wir den dicken sargdeckel aufgeschoben
da sind immer ein paar motten herausgeflogen
wie graue asche
