ASCHE – 洪君植 Hong Junzhi

ASCHE

Meine kleine Schwester hat mir gesagt,
die Asche unserer Mutter wird am Heimatort im Fluss verstreut.
Im siebenten Jahr nach Mutters Tod
schickt mir die Schwester aus Seol eine Schmuckschachtel für Ringe,
mit einem kleinen Rest, der nicht pulverisiert ist.
In der kleinen Schachtel
ist meine Mutter.
Ich sitz 13 Stunden starr am Schreibtisch,
nehm das Bisschen Asche in den Mund,
lutsche vorsichtig,
kau, bis das Blut kommt,
schlucks langsam runter,
schrei wie verrückt
Mama –

伊沙推荐语:六月下半月推荐诗中的上乘之作,洪君植写诗有一个鲜明的优点:爆发力强,爆发点有变化,这是一名真正的诗人身体上所携带的。

​况禹点评《新诗典》洪君植《骨灰》:爆发力太强了,堪称情感的核爆!而且是反技术的爆发力——它来自生命,和对亲人的爱。

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.

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.
