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

NEUE REZENSION AUF FIXPOETRY!

Martin Winter
DER MOND MUSS PERFEKT SEIN 《不敢不完美》 SHE HAS TO BE PERFECT / GEDICHTE IN DREI SPRACHEN

REST ASSURED

you are not going to find out
or people won’t know
what happens after you die
or I for that matter
we aren’t important enough
but even with those who are
no-one really knows

SEI GETROST

du wirst es nicht herausfinden
oder es wird nicht bekannt
was passiert wenn du tot bist
oder ich
wir sind nicht wichtig genug
aber auch bei den wichtigen
weiß mans nicht wirklich

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

WAHLRECHT – 邢非

WAHLRECHT

Heuer hab ich schon für zwei Leute,
die ich nicht kenne,
gewählt
und zwei Kugelschreiber bekommen.
Dann hab ich hintereinander
für drei Bekannte gewählt
und drei Kugelschreiber bekommen.
Die hab ich alle nicht mitgehen lassen,
die haben sie mir
beim Eingang ins Wahllokal
lächelnd überreicht.

GLOBAL TIMES 什麼意思?

GLOBAL TIMES

什么意思?
环球时代
我们生活在环球时代
我们是谁
从哪里来
到哪里去

什么意思?
环球时报
不是默多克买下的倫敦時報
但有同样的问题

什么意思?
环球时代
我们生活在环球时代
我们是谁
从哪里来
到哪里去

GLOBAL TIMES

what are global times?
we are living in global times
who are we
where did we come from
where are we going

what is global times?
global times is a paper in china
not owned by murdoch
but all the same

what are global times?
we are living in global times
who are we
where did we come from
where are we going

DREAMING OF LIVING INSIDE A DREAM

Tr. MW, June 2014

Published in EPIPHANY magazine, fall 2014. Go on, look for this great Chinese Dream! I spent October 2014 at Vermont Studio Center with Yi Sha, editor of the daily New Century Poetry series 新世纪诗典. Chun Sue is one of the most well-known figures within this huge independent circle of poets.

MORNING, AVENUE OF ETERNAL PEACE

Little Brother says: dad, Avenue of Eternal Peace
take a good look
This is the road you walked for over 20 years
I am sitting with Papa and Little Brother
I am almost crying
Finally I know
why I like the Avenue of Eternal Peace
Slowly the car passes the Military Museum
and the red walls of Zhongnanhai
and Xinhua Gate
Papa is small now he fits in an ash box
sitting between us
doesn’t take up much space
We pass the Gate of Heavenly Peace
and I see him
He stands on the square
watching us while we’re passing

Why was it so hard to write about you
You’re the son of a peasant
I was born in a village
I am also the child of a peasant
I put on army songs for you all night
Crying my heart out —
I like all that too.

Duo Duo: TO BE ABLE

九月 10, 2013
Painting by Sara Bernal

Painting by Sara Bernal

Duo Duo
TO BE ABLE

to be able to drink big gulps of warm wine
to enjoy glory days in stupor
to be able to think
behind the ticking window curtain at noon
think of trivial things
to be really embarrassed for a long time

to be able to take a walk for yourself
sit down on a chair painted green
close your eyes for a while
to be able to sigh
thinking of unpleasant things
to forget where the ash
dropped from your cigarette

to be able to lose your temper
when you are sick, to do undignified things
to be able to walk along a familiar road
walking all the way home
to have someone kiss you
wash you scrub you, to have exquisite lies
waiting for you, to be able to live in this way

would be great, any place, any time
picking flowers
mouths finding mouths
no unrests no revolution
what flows down to the ground is the sacrificed wine
to be able to live in this way
would be great, would be the ultimate thing to enjoy!

Tr. MW, Sept. 2013

多多

《能夠》

能够有大口喝醉烧酒的日子
能够壮烈、酩酊
能够在中午
在钟表滴嗒的窗幔后面
想一些琐碎的心事
能够认真地久久地难为情

能够一个人散步
坐到漆绿的椅子上
合一会儿眼睛
能够舒舒服服地叹息
回忆并不愉快的往事
忘记烟灰
弹落在什么地方

能够在生病的日子里
发脾气,作出不体面的事
能够沿着走惯的路
一路走回家去
能够有一个人亲你
擦洗你,还有精致的谎话
在等你,能够这样活着

可有多好,随时随地
手能够折下鲜花
嘴唇能够够到嘴唇
没有风暴也没有革命
灌溉大地的是人民捐献的酒
能够这样活着
可有多好,要多好就有多好!
