GOD AND MOON AT MY READING – MOND BEI DER LESUNG

伊沙德語第一本書最近出來了,維也納 FabrikTransit 出版社做得很棒。明年有第二本。都是雙語,很精彩。十月十五日我们做了朗誦,在維也納新總火車站附近。就是我家的小區,我們有自己的圖書館和舞台。也介绍了我自 己的詩集。今年的文学諾貝爾得主有一首 Masters of War,我有一首 “X&Y”, 伊沙翻譯成《一搭一挡》。講尼克松和他的外交部长、大陸前领導和他的首相等等。墙上還有“毛”字,因為伊沙1991年一首小詩。“X&Y” 原來是英語,不過我們朗誦多半用德語,還有一些中文。我的詩《赌場跟清真寺》 MOSQUE & CASINO 原文是中文,以後寫了英語,德語。還讀了几首政治詩歌。奥地利政治今年相當可 怕,四次說選總統,十二月份希望是最後一次,而且祈祷结果不是比德国 AFFEN FÜR DEUTSCHLAND 更恶心的黨代表我們。

MOON AT MY READING

at my reading I was a star
I did nor see the moon
the moon was huge and round and white
bettina told me
a fat sow in hiding
when she came at dusk
my daughter would not let me smoke
this one cigarette
we saw the moon next day in the evening
before going to bed
summer savings time
or whatever it’s called
will be over soon

MOND BEI DER LESUNG

bei meiner lesung war ich ein star
ich hab den mond nicht gesehen
der mond war groß und rund und weiß
hab ich erfahren
fett hinter wolken
meine tochter hat aufgepasst
dass ich nicht rauche.
am nächsten abend
haben wir ihn zusammen gesehen.
nächste woche
ist endlich winterzeit.

GOTT

gott ist der staub auf der erd
im all unter menschen und käfern
god’s in the dust on earth in space
under bugs and other people
god’s the steeple
the chaser
water of life and all that
god is the cat
or the rat
length and the breadth
length of breath
got ist tot
was ist got
is it goth
people who try & fail to be german
gott ist im lot
in seiner stadt
god is in lot and his wife
in their town
in their flight
certainly not in dublin rules
rather in
every other thing
over there,
here, anywhere
everyone who helps
who says no
to glib politicians
takes a stand
not in the apes who crow for deutschland
god is the dust, rust and the whiskey
chests and nuts, snowballs
bluster of autumn
blushing of spring
small crazy thing

dust crazy things?

guess I should vacuum

ICH SCHLAF SCHON IM STEHEN – 许立志 Xu Lizhi

ICH SCHLAF SCHON IM STEHEN

Das Papier vor mir ist ein bisschen gelb.
Ich grab dunkle und hellere Zeichen hinein,
lauter Wanderarbeiter-Wörter.
Die Werkstatt, das Fließband, der Ausweis,
die Maschine, die Überstunden, der Lohn …
Ich werde von ihnen vollkommen beherrscht.
Ich werde nicht aufschreien, werd mich nicht wehren.
Niemanden verklagen und mich nie beschweren.
Nur schweigend Erschöpfung ertragen.
Bis der Anfang vorbei ist.
Bis zum Zehnten im Monat der graue Lohnzettel
Trost bringt für alles davor.
Dafür wetz ich Kanten ab, reibe Sprache weg.
Keine Krankheit, kein Urlaub, kein Fernbleiben.
Niemals später aufstehn, niemals früher gehen.
Steh eisern am Fließband mit fliegenden Händen.
So viele Tage, so viele Nächte,
ich schlaf schon im Stehen.

许立志
「我就那样站着入睡」

眼前的纸张微微发黄
我用钢笔在上面凿下深浅不一的黑
里面盛满打工的词汇
车间,流水线,机台,上岗证,加班,薪水……
我被它们治得服服贴贴
我不会呐喊,不会反抗
不会控诉,不会埋怨
只默默地承受着疲惫
驻足时光之初
我只盼望每月十号那张灰色的薪资单
赐我以迟到的安慰
为此我必须磨去棱角,磨去语言
拒绝旷工,拒绝病假,拒绝事假
拒绝迟到,拒绝早退
流水线旁我站立如铁,双手如飞
多少白天,多少黑夜
我就那样,站着入睡

BAUMAUGEN – 唐果 Tang Guo

Tang Guo Baumaugen

BAUMAUGEN

baumaugen
wachsen nicht nur unter der stirn
(es ist nicht kulturell festgelegt
wieviele ein baum haben darf
also hat er ebenso viele
wie er grad mag)

sie passen auch nicht zueinander
(es gibt keine muster
sie stellen sich nicht in ein rechteck)
und strahlen auch nicht
(sie blinzeln eher
wie alte hündinnen
ihnen rinnen die tränen)

sie haben wimpern
(ein kurzer vorhang,
kauf nicht soviel stoff)
und schlaf in den augen
warten auf käfer, die machen sauber
(vögel oben am nasenrücken
putzen die käfer weg)

baumaugen
größer als kuhaugen
deshalb erschrecken sie
kinder, die spielen
in bäumen verstecken

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.

Chun Sue Avenue of Eternal PeaceChun Sue
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.
