MARTIN LUTHER, CARD GAMES, NATIONAL DAY

十月 31, 2017

500

ob martin luther
gelebt hat
oder gestorben ist
oder beides
ist nicht besonders wichtig
für mich persönlich
martin luther king
war sehr sehr wichtig
und der vor 500 jahren
hat eine sehr wichtige bibel geschrieben
die immer noch gut klingt
und er war wichtig für widerstand
obwohl dann gegen bauern
und in der hinsicht ist er mir
eh auch nicht wurscht.

TAROCK

wir spielen um geld
weniger als ein euro
wenn du zehn cent gewinnst
an einem abend
ist es sehr schön
wenn du verlierst
ist es auch nicht so schlimm
hauptsache wir treffen uns
am ende der woche
egal wie die wahl war
in der bibliothek
die bibliothek
ist das schönste am haus
wir spielen um geld
du denkst nur an die karten
es gibt ein bisschen weißwein
vielleicht knabberzeug
manchmal wird auch geredet
manchmal gibt es essen
hauptsache es wird noch gespielt

AUSTRIAN NATIONAL DAY

austrian national day
2017
it’s a beautiful day
we stand in line on heroes’ square
along the castle
to get into the president’s quarters
next to us in line
is a guy from syria
his german is very good
he hands me his phone
what he writes in german
sounds like 19th century
but it’s clear and correct
a small scrawny guy
don’t know if his family
is still in syria
at least he can stay
there are 12 words or more
for love in arabic
translating himself
into german or english
he feels rather clumsy
going inside the imperial palace
the president’s office
security is not very strict
our guide from the offfice
in her typical
austrian diction
sounds proud and detached
and somewhat ironic
at the same time
we don’t catch the president
but we see the empress
she looks ordinary
the most powerful woman
maria theresia
now this is the room
where the president receives the government
yes, it’s much smaller than on tv
there was heating inside the building
in imperial times
the whole middle tract
air going up and down
all the way to the basement
very advanced for the time
only one room
has a fireplace
they had 15 degrees in this room
15 celsius in winter
this was the warmest place in the building
largest castle in europe
national day, austrian army
the atmosphere is rather relaxed
tee and good music
for everyone
in the president’s courtyard
regional army band, very good jazz
and of course strauss
children climbing
national monuments
austrian national day
nothing to brag about
at least the president
is not a german nationalist
last year wasn’t easy
all those elections
this year is much worse
next year those fuckers
will be in government
it was a nice national day
it’s a beautiful country

STIMME DER VERNUNFT

vernunft ist jetzt ein brauner bodensatz
das recht geht dem volk aus
das war immer schon so
das recht gehört denen die sichs richten können
in allen parteien
wer ist schuld wenn
der braune bodensatz präsident wird
jeder der haider cool fand
helmut zilk
jeder der nachgemacht hat
löschnak cap und so weiter
nicht nur die schwarzen
jeder der inseriert hat
in österreich das gratis aufliegt
im großen schmierblatt
dem unser kanzler sein amt verdankt
als er mit seinem vorgänger
auf einmal arschgeküsst hat
der fischer sagt auch nichts
wär doch schön irgendwie
könnt sich der handke für die republik
gegen die blauen staatsfeinde
so engagieren wie für milosevic
österreich ist ein schlechter witz

STIMME DER VERNUNFT (2)

ist die vernunft
der im parlament
herbeigestimmte notstand
der beiden parteien
für die zehn prozent noch zu viel sind?
die stimme der vernunft ist leise,
hat freud gesagt.
und ich vergess es
auch immer wieder.

STIMME DER VERNUNFT (3)

es war die stimme des intellekts
die stimme des intellekts ist leise
hat freud gesagt
jedenfalls stimmt es
das dreiste grinsen
auf den plakaten
ist wohl genau das gegenteil
in beiden fällen

die lust am für-blöd-verkaufen
das fahnenschwenken
wer den antifaschistischen konsens
in der verfassung
in frage stellt
gehört ins gefängnis
nicht ins parlament
oder in die hofburg

das kann man nicht laut genug sagen

AUSTRIA SUCKS

AUSTRIA SUCKS

sit in vienna’s botanical garden.
breathe.
you will feel cool under the trees
in the heat of the summer.
you might hear the traffic
it’s right next to the palace
not the one with the president.
the belvedere, the one with the view.
they signed a contract here.
1955
austria swore to be neutral
and anti-fascist.
yes, it’s in there.
ai weiwei is in the garden.
at least till october.
until the election is over.
our third election in half a year.
austria sucks.
because the fascists have come this far.
are they fascists?
some of them
are neo-nazi-
friendly.
anti-anti-fascist.
this is a wonderful, wonderful place.
very, very safe.
not perfect, no.
not at all.
getting worse.
getting better, maybe.
what are we doing?
what is going to happen?
is it really important?
austria sucks
because the fascists have come this far.
what kind of heart
of europe is this?
breathe.
think about your next election.

NACHT MACHT MEIN HAUS ZUM PALAST – 杨于军 June Yang

五月 5, 2016

June Yang (Yang Yujun)
NACHT MACHT MEIN HAUS ZUM PALAST

Nacht macht mein Haus zum Palast.
Narben und Schäden leuchten und strahlen.
Schwellen aus Jade, Mauern aus Seide, Dach als Glasur.
Jenseits der Großen Mauer,
tief im sonnigen Süden,
weit im Westen der Sage,
das oströmische Reich.
Länder und Völker kommt mit Tribut, tausend Arten von Schrift,
lauter Blüten und Kräuter.
Lass mich spielen summen singen,
folg dem alten Qu Yuan,
folg Bo Ya mit der Zither,
Xi Kang dem Musikdissidenten im Bambus,
folg Jiang Kui aus der Song-Dynastie;
dem Tang-Kaiser mit seiner tragischen Liebe,
dem gefangenen Kaiser Li Yu.
Alle Röhren und Saiten,
Schattenduft, Zwetschken blühn;
Pavillon, Turm, Terrasse, Lusthaus im Garten.
Die süßesten Lieder,
die Seitengebäude.

Kein Fürst geht verloren im eigenen Palast,
nur ich verirr mich.
Mancher Fürst sank in Schrift und Gesang und sein Reich ging perdü,
das wird mir nie geschehen.

people are slow here
says our guide
you have to get used to them
then it’s dark in a jump
and the moon climbs very fast
to her highest position
guess she is happy
to serve Chinese tour groups
so these few years
she runs faster and faster

IN THE EMPORIUM OF PRECIOUS STONES

In the emporium of precious stones
there is a smoking room,
looks a bit like a prison.
Men who need separation
quietly gather,
with their heavy hearts
just for a short spell;
then go on buying things.

VACATION

Let us go diving into the deep.
Last year in August
someone in Tianjin
said one thousand people had died.
He was put in jail.
Let us go diving.
Elections this year in Taiwan,
first female president.
Let’s go now, let’s go.
These few days
someone gave an interview
voice of freedom or something.
Said the city he lived in
was not free,
autonomous region was not autonomous.
Let us go diving now.
He got fourteen years.
He wasn’t the first.
Let’s go now, go.
There’ll be other things
planned for the afternoon.

SHE HAS TO BE PERFECT

In Singapore
we have a new guide.
Her name means “swallow”.
She explains about their laws.
Sounds a bit like Thailand
talks about Buddhism.

“You have to be careful,
you can’t just sit down anywhere.”

We get in very late
but we still call a reading.
Across the street from the hotel
you can sit outside,
you can even smoke.
Long as you don’t toss the butt.
When you order a beer,
one bottle per person may be too much.

Where is the moon?
In Singapore
she obeys the law to the letter,
otherwise they beat her behind.
She steps out of the clouds
in her most perfect poise.

POETRY READING IS GOOD

Poetry Reading’s good,
Poetry Reading’s good.
In our New Poetry Canon, people’s dignity is high.
System clique’s in the dregs,
state-sanctioned writers scurry with their tails between their legs!

MOSQUE & CASINO

Mosque and casino
both have Adam and Eve.
The casino in Singapore
at the Botanical Garden
greets you with Dali and with Botero.
Botero’s sculptures Adam and Eve
at the gate of the casino.
What would the artist think of this sight?
Art is a rather ambivalent thing.
Poetry makes you a better person?
The mosque in Malaysia’s government district
is a sight to behold.
I am folding my hands.
An old lady asks me if I am a Muslim.
I just bow and keep silent,
so she lets me go in
and helps me taking pictures.
She sees I don’t know how to pray
so she gives me a folder and tries to explain.
There’ll be prayer time in forty minutes.
Men at the bottom, women up there.
She hopes I can make it.
The folder says
Adam and Eve were also Muslims.
Adam was the first Prophet.
The Mosque has Quran editions in English.
I flip through a section.
Allah bestows many signs on mankind.
Sleep is also a sign,
along with creation
and languages and different colours.
We haven’t had enough sleep on this trip.
Soaring up with my eyes,
I think being a Muslim is good.
I know why it’s forbidden to make any idols.
Half an hour later we are drinking beer.
I am still a believer
in beauty in art.
Poetry and art are signs of Allah.

HEROES’ MONUMENT OF MALAYSIA

Was it a glorious thing when they died?
Did they go to war
for peace and freedom?
In World War I
In World War II
In civil war
they hardly had any choice.
In 1966
Malaysia’s prime minister had them erected
a park of monuments.
They already had one from World War I.
With names from Europe, also from India.
Probably officers.
To make this park for all those who died,
all those who gave their lives in the wars.
In 1966.
I was born in that year.
Maybe this monument
was a good idea.

也许好主义。

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.
