FUSSBALLMATCH 1914 – 杜思尚 Du Sishang

8月 1, 2021

Du Sishang
FUSSBALLMATCH 1914

Nasskalter Schützengraben,
regennasse Leichen.
Diese Bilder vom ersten Weltkrieg
sind schon über hundert Jahre alt.
Was ich jetzt noch weiß,
das ist der Weihnachtstag,
wo die Soldaten auf beiden Seiten
ihre Waffen niedergelegt
und auf dem Schlachtfeld
Fussball gespielt haben.
Neben dem Match
tauschen sie Zigaretten und Rum.
Sie holen Familienfotos heraus
und feiern die Tore.

新世纪诗典作品联展#杜思尚#(9.0)

Du Sishang, geb. 1974 in Nanyang, Provinz Henan, ist seit 1992 bei der Armee. Er hat die Kunstakademie der Streitkräfte abgeschlossen. Er hat zwei Gedichtbände publiziert, seine Texte sind in vielen Zeitschriften und Anthologien erschienen. 《新诗典》小档案:杜思尚,1974年生于河南南阳,1992年从军至今。毕业于解放军艺术学院。诗歌作品发表于《文艺报》、《解放军报》、《解放军文艺》、《诗潮》、《橄榄绿》、《读诗》等刊物,入选《新世纪诗典》、《葵》、《中国先锋诗歌年鉴》、《中国口语诗年鉴》、《中国诗歌排行榜》等文本。著有诗集《人间》,《我常垂钓于逝水河畔》。

伊沙点评《1914年的足球赛》:八一建军节,又适逢东京奥运会期间,特推荐《新诗典》迄今1193位诗人中惟一的现役诗人杜思尚一首写足球的诗,此诗在8月上半月中可居亚军。本主持呼和浩特推荐。

况禹点评《新诗典》杜思尚《1914年的足球赛》:有些史实细节的记述,宏大的“官史”多数时候不予重视,但往往正是这类细节,才藏着人性和文明的秘密。为世人发掘出它们,也是现代诗不同于以往诗歌的贡献之一。

黎雪梅读《新世纪诗典》之杜思尚《1914年的足球赛》:残酷的战争时期里一场特殊的球赛,让诗人至今记忆犹新,可见这是一场看似普通却又极不普通的球赛。如果抛开交战双方士兵们战士的身份及各为其主的因素,这些普通人家的孩子是完全可以放下芥蒂,做到和谐相处、友好交往的,诗中那些关于球赛的感人肺腑的细节、暖心的画面便是明证。若世间没有战争,而是多些这样的球赛、烟丝、照片和朗姆酒该有多好!宏大的背景与具体而微的细节、人性的善良与战争的丑恶交织,带给读者内心强烈的冲击与反思,久久难以平静。

马金山|读杜思尚的诗《1914年的足球赛》的十一条:
1、一首诗应该是一颗种子,和一堆燃烧的篝火,更是一颗智慧的内心;
2、于诗于诗人而言,对于那些不是在内心深处真正的怀有一颗敬畏之心的人,甚至于把人当成物品的人,何必要尊重他呢;
3、杜思尚,1974年生于河南南阳,1992年从军至今。毕业于解放军艺术学院。诗歌作品发表于《文艺报》、《解放军报》、《解放军文艺》等刊物,入选《新世纪诗典》等文本。著有诗集《人间》、《我常垂钓于逝水河畔》;
4、久未读到杜思尚的诗,当然,在这里专指其再次入典的作品,而同为有过军旅生涯的我,读到今天的推荐诗,不由得让人倍感亲切;
5、杜思尚的诗,语言极为厚实而简洁,形式上具有多重角度和力度,内容方面则更加丰富、饱满,而且清晰,在思想意识与深度层面,更加的深刻与沉实;
6、本诗以战争为背景,并以破天荒的足球赛为主题,写出了圣诞节交战双方的精神状态和心理世界,尽管已过去百余年,但诗里行间的层次感和画面感,凸凹有致,色彩纷呈;
7、诗中由三节构成,一节是战场中冰冷血腥的画面,另一节是战场成为足球场的细节挖掘与呈现,最后则是由球回到观众战士的精神层面,令人动容;
8、战争时期的精神文明生活,对于战斗中的人来说,至关重要,因为它既可以增加战斗力,更加可以有效改善人们内心深处的紧张情绪与恐惧心理,但此诗却写出了交战双方的“合作”,凸显出人性的善恶是非,值得深思;
9、诗的标题,从时间到故事情节,直面现实而又不失深刻,将二手资料转化为自然的“我”之诗意,绝妙而真切;
10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“现实是残酷的,更是荒诞离奇的”;
11、荒诞之诗,画面之诗,反思之诗。

TRIVIALITIES: LONG AND SHORT 徐江 Xu Jiang

Xu Jiang
TRIVIALITIES: LONG AND SHORT

The France I used to like has disappeared,
Paris is thronged with people from places
very far away from the outskirts of Gaul.
The America I used to love
has gone back into the movies.
Many people who live there now are villains from fiction,
Robert Penn Warren, William Styron, Faulkner and Steinbeck.
Hemingway characters have been condensed into fairytales.
And those bumpkins ridiculed by Thomas Wolfe,
they would like to hold the world by its throat as a matter of course.
I am thinking of Ellery Queen, Bogart, Jack Nicholson
and all sorts of Pacino,
standing between shadows and light, DeNiro people.
I am not sure whether the lives
described by the great Annie Proulx and Ring Lardner
have really existed.
If it really was like that,
then Philip Roth and Salinger, those two masters,
they didn’t have it any easier than Bernard Malamud or myself.
The Britain I liked and also hated,
the world of Dickens, Hardy, Emily Brontë, Evelyn Waugh,
also the world of Guy Maddin.
Chaplin and Hitchcock, they came from England,
no matter if they thought of it as their grandmother‘s home or whatever,
that kind of world is gone, no-one can go back to it.
Italy, of Umberto Saba’s bitter poetry,
of Tornatore’s splendor,
Fellini’s ghosts and deities,
a world has gone under but another world has not risen.
Poor Barcelona, poor Spain,
aside from Messi, what else can you make me think of?
The bullets shot at Lorca?
Thick smoke covers Cervantes and Unamuno.
But you are singing, saying what does this have to do with you?
As you go north, farther north, everywhere north in the world
you’ll run into people drinking forever.
They are crawling out of Ibsen, Hamsun, Dostoyevski’s White Nights,
Crawling all the way till today until half of what Solzhenitsyn described is gone.
I really don’t know if this is a good thing or not.
Neither Tolstoy nor Maupassant nor the wisdom of Martin du Gard can advise me.
Old Hesse stares into the distance with his Steppenwolf eyes and doesn’t speak.
At this time everyone can understand a little why Stefan Zweig and Richard Strauss broke down.
Bukowski didn’t care about any of this, he drank a bottle and went on writing.
Pasternak screwed up his horse face and stared at a row of trees in the snow.
Wandering souls drive their chariots, circling and circling,
soundlessly crushing expectations and fear;
crushing Nietzsche and Stephen Hawking, actually
all of this can be seen to belong to Stephen King.
But it’s ok,
just be glad it’s still ok,
food is eaten, television’s turned on.
Ineffective dreams are about to start,
about to start again.
You will wake up, we will wake up,
from utter sadness, wake up to enter
indefinite nights, poisoned days.
Yes, everything definitely indefinite.
Let us clear away this forest,
let us see the distance in the past.
Not so we can see the past,
but so we can see once more
the distance we longed for.

新世纪诗典作品联展#徐江#(32.0)

伊沙推荐:徐氏现代感怀赋体诗,是徐江在一首决胜争奖时惯用的杀手锏,确实能够展示一名诗人的综合修养与实力,但在我的评判中并非次次都奏效,取决于真知灼见与书生义气所占比例之多寡,当然是前者百分比越高就越好。本诗不算高也不算低,所以入典推荐但不染指荣誉,好在作者新近刚获李白诗歌奖新世纪中国十大诗人奖并继续保持满额。

况禹点评《新诗典》徐江《杂事诗·长短调》:本诗的缘起当然是横行全球的新冠疫情,主题则是这一疫情下文明的崩溃与混乱,以及人所应持有的正确反应。属于作者当下题材的作品中,最重要的主题之一。

黎雪梅读《新世纪诗典》之徐江《杂事诗.长短调:》这是一首关于疫情的诗歌,在诗中你能感受到各种秩序的混乱,无论欧洲还是美洲;你还能遇见很多熟悉的作家及诗人的名字,仿佛跨越时空,他们都站在你的面前,与你探讨自由、正义和死亡等有关人类存在最基本的问题,也许每个人的观点不同,但人们还是看见了远方的曙光,这正是人类的希望所在。

黄开兵:密集恐惧症——抄了两个多小时!孩子都快看完两部电影了。推荐词部分特意用了朱墨书写,避免因为密集而难以辨别。视觉效果不错!

黄平子读徐江《杂事诗·长短调》

——《新世纪诗典》3682

黄平子读诗:百度了一下“长短调”,由于该词涉及到音乐、摄影等知识,徐江老师又将其运用到诗里,我还是搞不大明白。不懂不装懂,这是我的读诗原则。猜一下:该诗叫长短调,大约是前后两节写了不同的内容,用了不同的手法吧。从“我喜欢的法国消失了”到“所有这些你也都可以看成是斯蒂芬·金”是诗的第一小节。诗人从法国开始,先后写到美国、英国、意大利、巴萨罗那、西班牙、北方、更北方、全世界所有的北方。诗人通过追忆那些逝去的大师们,最终发出感慨:“一个世界沉没了可另一个世界并没有升起来”。从“不过还好”到“我们过去向往的远方”是诗的第二小节。诗人由回忆回到现实:“你将醒来我们将醒来/从确切的悲伤中醒来”。过去很美好,现在不尽人意,不过将来肯定会更好。徐江不是悲观论者,这一点,诗写得很清楚:“不是为了看到过去/而是为了重新看一看/我们过去向往的远方”。第一小节偏叙事,第二小节偏议论。从百度关于长短调的定义来看,第一小节应该属于短调,第二小节属于长调。不知道有没有搞错。好几个诗人都说这是一首疫情诗。我觉得不是。《长短调》缅怀的是逝去的大师和过去璀璨的文明:“那样的世界今天的人现在都回不去了”。

马金山|读徐江的诗《杂事诗·长短调》的十一条:
1、文字燃烧思想,现实成就诗史;
2、当代性,即先锋性。活出文明,诗写人生;
3、徐江,毕业于北京师范大学中文系。1991年创办《葵》。著有诗集《黄昏前说起天才》《徐江的诗》《花火》《雾》《杂事诗》《我斜视》、诗学论著《这就是诗》《现代诗物语》等二十余种。主持编选《1991年以来的中国诗歌》《给孩子们的诗》。五次荣获新世纪诗典“李白诗歌奖”。曾获首届亚洲诗人奖、《世界诗人》2006年度国际最佳诗人;
4、徐江的诗,尤其是短制系列作品,是极其少有的值得我整理打印出来一读再读的,其作品给我最多的意义在于丰富与智慧,并且文字的言外之意,何等绚烂、精彩;
5、《杂事诗》系列,对于诗人徐江来说,应该是尤为重要的,不仅如此,对于新世纪的诗坛来说,何偿不是一部重要的作品呢,既有个人化的印记,还有时代的呼吸与脉搏,庞大而丰富;
6、本诗写作的背景,毫不回避的是现实与疫情,不只如此,还有个体的情感与生活,除此之外,还有审视的眼光和内在的格局,均对世界物象的触感具有智性的广度与深度;
7、诗里行间,不仅有细小的颗粒,还有辽阔的世界性建构,在纹理细腻的情感排列中,既有清晰的空间,还有现代的文明,锋利而又鲜活;
8、浓厚与庞杂,是这个世界的秩序,还是我读这首史诗的深切感受,几乎每一节,都是芬芳,都是灿烂与文明,这是很多作品所不具备的,而此诗有,想要的一切;
9、未来可期,这是本诗给予我提供的精神价值,传递健康积极的生活态度与思想观念,也是此诗给予的力量;
10、本诗给予诗人的启示:“伟大的诗,源于伟大的时代,而这个时代,何尝不是伟大的历史时期呢”;
11、时代之诗,文化之诗,文明史记。

SCHNAPS – 江湖海 Jianghu Hai

SCHNAPS

Mein Onkel zieht seinen Karren.
Auf dem Karren sitzen 800 Pfund Schnaps
und sein achtjähriger Sohn.
Er ist mein Cousin, ein halbes Jahr älter als ich.
Onkel arbeitet im Transport für die Konsumgenossenschaft
der Gemeinde Qingshan.
Die Bergstraße ist holprig,
das Kind sitzt stabil, der Schnaps leider nicht.
Das Kind leckt den ganzen Weg
an der Ritze wo Schnaps aus dem Deckel herauskommt.
Die Bergstraße ist 18 Li lang,
800 Pfund Schnaps wollen nicht schlafen.
Der achtjährige Sohn
ist eingeschlafen und wacht nicht mehr auf.

HOSPITAL SELF-REGISTRATION MACHINE:冰雪梅

HOSPITAL SELF-REGISTRATION MACHINE

The woman waiting before me
very nervously
spreads the large 100 yuan bills
clutched in her hand,
one after the other
feeding the mouth of the machine.

That mouth isn’t big,
but it has swallowed
each of those old red Mao heads.

She looks at me, nervous and helpless.
— “This how you do it?”
— “This how it works?”

Yes. This is it.

Let us all come together,
3 bows 9 kowtows before this cold majesty.
Pray after it has filled its belly,
it’ll work magic.
Heal our wounds, end our pain,
let hearts and spirits be calm again.

SPIRIT ROAD – 伊沙 Yi Sha

7月 4, 2015

Yi Sha
SPIRIT ROAD

at the Eastern Tombs
they have a Spirit Road
when our lady guide
told us this path
was for calling the spirits
all of us poets
everyone diverted their feet
no matter which camp
intellectual or earthy
of the Third Generation
or the ones In Between
those with something to say
and those without
anyone who touched on the road by mistake
thought he stepped on a mine
and jumped back to the side
the road of the spirits
no trace of the living
no footprints at all

Yi Sha STRASSE DER SEELEN

《东陵有条灵魂之路》

在东陵
有一条灵魂之路
当导游小姐
告诉我们
它作招魂之用时
所有诗人的脚
都小心翼翼地
回避开它
不论民间的
还是知识分子的
不论第三代的
还是中间代的
不论有话要说的
还是无话可说的
偶有不慎踩踏者
也都触雷一般
缩回脚来
灵魂之路
没有足印
没有人迹

soccer fans all over the world
know about pele’s predictions
he knows before who wins the crown
and who must go down
even brazil his own team
he has predicted bad luck for them
several times, these are

he’s the real deal
king of the game
every real king talks to the spirits
right or wrong is all one

MOTHER AND DAUGHTER – 安琪三首 3 POEMS BY AN QI

5月 11, 2014

an qi airport

An Qi
AT THE AIRPORT TO PICK UP MY DAUGHTER

today is september 28
my daughter is on a plane coming to see me in beijing
actually I wanted to see her and lured her with beijing

I arrive at the airport one hour early
I am even thinking if I arrive an hour before
I can see her that much earlier

so many airplanes coming and going
for me it’s like every one carries my daughter
every plane on the sky roars like my daughter when she is running

the plane has come down from the sky
my daughter is coming out
we are looking at each other, without speaking. a little shy.

my daughter has grown very tall.
I hug her, she says: “mama, I’m heavy,
you better not pick me up”.

she says: “mama, I have to pee”,
while I am holding her and she is peeing she says:
“mama, I will pee on you!”

we are in the airport toilet.
I am still holding her wishing she’d pee on me
like that little shaft running out of her, she could not hold it while I changed her diapers.

an qi spirit-tree

An Qi
HOW CAN A SPIRIT-TREE FALL ASLEEP PEACEFULLY AMONG THE FEAR

Sweet dreams, my dear
I try to soothe you after the rage
Lightly, lightly patting your branches
Making you deep blue clothes out of warmth
So you fall asleep safe and sound in the night of the spirits
If you are afraid
I will enter deep into your fears and stir the water
I am good at that game
I’m very good at telling myself the second I close my eyes
The world is at peace.

An Qi Dufu  straw cottage

An Qi
AT DU FU’S “STRAW COTTAGE” IN CHENGDU

slender and thin
emaciated. that must be the image
it goes without saying
the sorrowful poet
the nation, the people, they all make him worry
more fat is forbidden
and laughter’s forbidden
so the dufu you’re seeing
(the dufu that’s everywhere)
bronze dufu
stone dufu
clay dufu
paper dufu
the same slender stature
of misery
as if he’d been born like that
I am thinking
the artist must have been frightened stupid
by the dufu inside his mind

Tr. MW, May 2014
