SUNSET – 金山 Jin Shan – SONNENUNTERGANG

六月 12, 2020

Jin Shan
SUNSET

Walking from one end
of the village to the other
takes hardly more than 10 minutes.
Since I came to live here,
I have never walked like that by day.
Sometimes at night, half closing
my eyes, I am walking
past broken houses, one after the other.
Ruins, encircled by newly erected
factories from every side.
Wish I could meet
a young student returning from school.
Sometimes at sunset,
I stand in a daze for a while
at the edge of the village.

SONNENUNTERGANG

 

Von einem Ende

bis zum anderen Ende des Dorfes

sind es nur ungefähr 10 Minuten.

Seit ich hier wohne

bin ich nie untertags diese Strecke gegangen.

Manchmal am Abend mach ich

die Augen halb zu und geh weiter,

an lauter zerstörten Häusern vorbei.

Ruinen, und neu errichtete

Fabriken, die anrücken von allen Seiten.

Ich würde gerne

einen Schüler treffen, auf dem Weg nach Hause.

Wenn die Sonne untergeht, bleib ich manchmal

stehen am Dorfrand,

einfach nur schauen.

13 REASONS FOR BAD POETRY: PLEASE PICK OUT WHICH FITS YOU OR ADD YOUR OWN

1)
I harbour no prejudice at all
against any poetry,
including colloquial poems
and lyrical expressions of feeling.

2)
Writing good or bad poetry is not important.
Anyway we are all brothers!

3)
I don’t write for fame or profit, I am a pure amateur.

4)
Good or bad, cow parts or not, wait for history’s judgment!

5)
Just keep quiet and stick to your writing, who needs to fight and find fault all the time?

6)
“Your circles are messy!”

7)
Poetry isn’t the only thing, I have to live!

8)
If he had not died, poetry would not be in this state.

9)
I write for eternity.

10)
I am still learning, please esteemed teachers, point out my faults!

11)
I also try my hand at this shit.

12)
Quality, not quantity! One poem beats hundreds of others.

13)
How can you think you bastards could ever write a good poem?
