“Busy Hating” in German.

(English version and explanations see China Change)

STRESS!

Morgens hass ich die USA,
zu Mittag Südkorea,
am Abend Japan.
Ich bin sehr beschäftigt mit Taiwan und Singapur.
Dann träum ich von Vietnam und den Philippinen.

Montag gegen Südkorea,
Dienstag gegen Japan,
Mittwoch USA,
Donnerstag unabhängiges Taiwan,
Freitag aufmüpfiges Hongkong,
Samstag undankbares Tibet,
Sonntag fromme Uighuren.

Wir haben viel Arbeit.
Alles Andere muss warten!

BELIEVE IN ROCKS

Whatever you study, you need to have faith.
When you research rocks, you believe in rocks.
When you study oracle bones, you believe in oracle bones.

Newton studied universal gravitation.
He believed in God.

EIN ALTER HERR – 吴雨伦

七月 30, 2015

grandfather

Wu Yulun
EIN ALTER HERR

er ist zoologe
zuerst war er soldat
mit 15 log er über sein alter, kam in die armee der republik
bis heute ist sein alter ein rätsel

er kämpfte in vietnam gegen franzosen
damals gab es die ganze zeit krieg
durch die kanonen bei dien bien phu
hörte er nichts mehr, obwohl sie dann siegten

später wurde er forscher
durchs qinling-gebirge, auf die hochebene
erforschte die yaks und moschushirsche der republik
durchquerte alaska mit amerikanischen imperialisten
obwohl er jetzt nicht mehr weiß ob der nordpol im meer ist

im alter betrogen ihn die betrüger der republik um den familienbesitz
leider zweifelt er noch an der polizei

EAT A PAGODA – 西娃

四月 2, 2015

eat pagoda

Xi Wa 《吃塔》
EAT A PAGODA

somewhere in the south on a restaurant table
I saw a pagoda
of red shining pork
(I hope I don’t remember its name)
when it appeared
I gazed on that thing
couldn’t take off my eyes

all the other dishes
had become worshippers
I was a worshipper
until I remembered
where I was born
in tibet
all those believers around a pagoda
their heads on the ground, offering incense
I was one of them
now I am one of them here

all those years, I kept my respect
for the mystery of a pagoda
I also kept my taboos about foods
looking at this pagoda of pork
red dazzling meat
I understand what appetite means:
people will eat all they can eat
and they will eat up all things they can’t

raising their chopsticks, sharing the food
the shining pagoda
pork dazzling red
I didn’t hear any sound
but it was as if I could see the dust
the rumbling dust
of our beliefs prostate on the ground
shoved down the throats of other people
their juices have no taboos
they clear it up without any sound

MOND IN ALASKA

du bist der mond über alaska
du bist der fluss
grüne wellen spiegeln dein schwarzes gewand
du zündest dir selbstgedrehten tabak an
ich seh du bist 16 schläfst mit einem jungen
machst raudau, nimmst drogen, machst liebe
du gießt mir wein ein
hoffentlich ist es roter
du spielst gitarre
sagst du geht nach thailand und wirst ein mönch
dein meister ist in vietnam
kann sein deine seele blieb in tibet
deinen traum, den gabst du vor langer zeit auf
und wirst doch wieder unsicher
am nachmittag wirst du namenlos müde
du schläfst ein und träumst
du streiftest umher im früheren leben
du liebtest jungen
ich war deine große schwester
du wachst auf und bist verheiratet
und findest im netz eine junge chinesin nach deinem herzen

春树
《阿拉斯加的月亮》

你是阿拉斯加的月亮
你是那条河水
绿色波涛倒映出你黑色衣裳
有时候你点燃一支烟草
看到16岁你和男孩睡在床上
嬉闹、吸毒、做爱
倒杯酒给我
但愿它是红色
你弹着吉他
要去泰国作一位和尚
你的师傅在越南
心灵可能遗失在西藏
很长时间了,你已经放弃了你的梦想
却又回复迷惘
你在下午因为无言的疲倦而睡去
你梦见
前世你是浪子
你喜欢男孩子
我是你的好姐姐
醒来后你已经结婚了
然后在网上遇到了你心爱的中国姑娘

SEX EDUCATION

One of our travels
We didn’t get out very much –
Nine years ago. Led us to Qingdao –
A summer of love
Sand castles, writing on rocks
Fresh clams in small restaurants
Very cheap. I remember
We lived in a school
A hotel for the summer
It was our summer of
Watching movies together
One night we sat
In the video room
All the way until morning
There was a flick about all kinds of fish
We were attracted
And then we felt
Shaken without compare
There was a fish called salmon
They had this one time
Of uninhibited communion
At the end of their lives
Fish of great beauty
Nine years ago
We don’t remember
How great it was
But no-one forgets
The pain at the end

《性爱教育》

那是我们不多的
出门旅行中的一次
九年前      在青岛
那是属于爱情的夏天

海滩上的砂器和字迹

小饭店里的鲜贝

非常便宜  记得

我们住在一所

学校里  在夏季

它临时改成了旅店

那是我们共同的

爱看电影的夏天

一个晚上  我们

在录像厅里

坐到了天亮

一部介绍鱼类的片子

吸引了我们

使我们感到

震惊无比

那种鱼叫三文鱼

一种以一次

酣畅淋漓的交媾

为生命终结的

美艳之鱼

九年了

我们没有记住

它的美丽

只是难以忘记

这种残酷的结局

SONG FROM NEXT DOOR – Yi Sha

SONG FROM NEXT DOOR

next door to my studio
a tibetan poet from india
when he was ten
he fled with his parents
writes in english and in tibetan
does not speak chinese
everyday he brings a guitar
actually it’s his own three-stringed instrument
when inspired
he breaks out in song
music goes through the walls
I don’t feel
he is disturbing me
I often prick up my ears
oh, it comes again
he is singing
I feel like I am going to cry
he sings in tibetan
but it is the tune
“nothing is more red then the sun,
no-one is closer than chairman mao…”

《隔壁的歌声》
我工作室隔壁
是一位印籍藏裔诗人
在他十岁那年
随爹妈逃到印度
用藏、英双语写作
不通汉语
他每天怀抱一把
六弦琴来到工作室
兴之所至
便弹唱起来
歌声穿墙而过
我不觉得
打扰了我
常常侧耳谛听
哦,此时此刻
他又唱起来了
听得我差点泪奔
他唱的是藏文版
《太阳最红,毛主席最亲》

Football: 3 LIGHTERS – 伊沙 Yi Sha

3 LIGHTERS

in my first two days in lhasa
I bought two lighters
one with a picture of robben
the other with messi
they were both useless
breathless entirely
on this snowy highland
on the roof of the world
even lighters
show a reaction
even soccer stars
can’t keep up the flame
but on the third day
we went up the potala
when we came down again
at the bottom
in a small shop
I bought another one
this lighter had no problem at all
it showed a picture
of a living buddha

3 FEUERZEUGE

in meinen ersten zwei tagen in lhasa
kaufte ich zwei feuerzeuge
eines mit robben
eines mit messi
beide nutzlos
ausser atem
auf der hochebene
auf dem dach der welt
sogar feuerzeuge
werden höhenkrank
sogar fußballstars
geht hier das feuer aus
aber am dritten tag
waren wir im potala
und darunter
auf dem rückweg
in einem kleinen laden
kaufte ich ein feuerzeug
das funktionierte einwandfrei
auf ihm war ein
lebender buddha

《三只打火机》

到达拉萨头两天
我先后买了
两只打火机
一只上贴罗本
一只上贴梅西
都不好使
差一口气
在这雪域高原
在这世界屋脊
连打火机
都有高原反应
连足球明星
都熄火了
但是第三天
我们登上布达拉宫
然后下来
在它下面的
小商店里
买的打火机
却没有任何问题
它的上面
贴着活佛

art

三月 20, 2008

Two days ago I went to Wikipedia in Chinese and stumbled on a photo of the Dalai Lama. The browser started generating error messages. When I tried to get there again, my screen went black. Then it was blue, with a message from Microsoft about a serious system failure. “Starting memory dumping” was at the bottom. I had been using Gladder, a Firefox entension for circumventing the Great Firewall when you’re in China.

In the 1980s, when I was an undergraduate student, we had a Chinese reading class. It was mostly Chinese government-issued information on Tibet. There was one phrase I remember. The soldiers of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army were generous, so they didn’t ask the Tibetan people immediately to pay back the cost of pacifying their land. That was a memorable sentence. Then in 2001 or so I was translating and dubbing films for the Ministry of Culture in Beijing. There was a report on celebrating 50 years of liberating Tibet. Somebody important called me and asked me to please finish it quickly. It was a very important piece. Hu Jintao, who was already very important back then, had led a central party delegation on a fact-finding trip through Tibet to prepare for the celebrations. They stayed at ordinary people’s homes. And when they left in the morning, they gave the peasant family gifts to thank them for letting them stay. They gave them framed pictures of the core leaders of the Chinese Communist Party. Chairman Mao Zedong, Chairman Deng Xiaoping and Chairman Jiang Zemin. That was a memorable scene.

What is art? What is music? Music makes you dance or cry. Art is truth. It’s the truth in the ear of the beholder. Or in other orifices. Or somewhere in between. They call it the heart. There have always been found objects. And pictures of leaders.

memory

we were discussing poetry
the one in scots was very good
and we had a dog with us
reading fathers’ hands aloud
we were having memories
back in 1989
didn’t hear of tibet then
it was early in the year
at the time i was in taiwan
haven’t found the shadow yet
shadow on the other side
there my son broke through the ice
actually there was no ice
when we stepped down from the island
it was getting warm already
we had asked a little girl
did she think the ice was safe
they were swimming in a hole
they have done it every year
it was getting warm already
no more skating on the ice
a touch of blue
the sky was fine
not far from here
in memory
we walked across the shichahai
we walked the ice
the island round
my son broke in
up to the leg
the beijing sky
back in 1989
i remember january
didn’t hear of tibet then
my father’s hands
his hands were warm
when i was small
we were discussing poetry
we climbed out on the other side
we warmed up in a coffee shop
and then we took a taxi home
actually we took a bus
yesterday back from the lake
it is early march this year
actually it’s not so early
it’s the middle of the month
please remember carefully
