LONG LIVE CHAIR-MAN MAO

七月 22, 2014

Zhao Siyun
LONG LIVE CHAIRMAN MAO

the former camp of the production brigade
has become our ancestral hall
we say the Zhao family temple
when I was small
every time I passed this place
I felt its mystery
people’s commune and county leaders would often gather
alcohol fumes drift through the air
none of us dared to steal a look at those dignified faces
at the spotted western wall
five classic characters written in lime:
LONG LIVE CHAIR-MAN MAO
solemn and serious
I thought there must be many officials in the whole country called Chairman Mao
and wondered if there was one in our production brigade

赵思运
毛主席万岁

昔日的生产大队驻地
如今成了我们赵家的祠堂
也就是常说的家庙
小时候
每次经过那里
都感到很神秘
常常有公社里的人还有县里的人来喝酒
酒香弥漫缭绕
我们谁也不敢伸头去看看那些人物的尊容
斑驳的西墙上
五个宋体石灰大字
毛主席万岁
端庄肃穆
我以为全国有很多叫毛主席的大官儿
还在想
我们的生产大队里是不是也有一个毛主席
