DAZED – 欧阳盼兮 Ouyang Panxi

DAZED

Teacher, I am sorry.
When I’m in a daze, I don‘t think anything.

If I think of how I am going to do my homework over the winter holidays,
that is thinking, not dazed.
If I think of how I was in class with my teacher Big Cat, that is remembering and not dazed.
If I think of my dad, that means I miss him, that’s not called dazed.
If I think there is a rainbow kingdom up in the sky, I am creative,
not dazed.
If I think of what I am going to be when I grow up, that is dreaming, not dazed.

Only if I don’t think of anything, that is called dazed.

INTO SPACE

 

Teacher, I am sorry.

When I stare into space, I don‘t think anything.

 

When I think of how I am going to do my homework over the winter holidays,

that is thinking, not staring.

When I think of how I was in class with my teacher Big Cat, that is remembering and not staring.

When I think of my dad, that means I miss him, not staring.

If I think there is a rainbow kingdom up in the sky, I am creative,

not staring.

If I think of what I am going to be when I grow up, that is dreaming, not staring.

 

Only if I don’t think of anything, I just stare into space.

SPIELEN – 莲心儿

SPIELEN

Jedesmal wenn ich im Rollstuhl fahr
schauen mich Kinder geradeaus an.
Ich hör sie sagen,
die große Schwester mit ihrem Wagen,
das ist ein tolles Spiel. Manche sagen sogar,
ich will auch so sitzen in so einem Wagen.

Die Erwachsenen mit ihnen sagen:
Wenn du nicht hörst und dich verletzt und du kannst nicht mehr gehen,
dann sitzt du in dem Wagen. Ist das ein tolles Spiel?
Wenn du in den Wagen willst, kommst du nie den Freizeitpark.

10.4. 2018 in der U-Bahn in Beijing
