KLEINER KLAPPSTUHL – 伊沙 Yi Sha

十一月 17, 2017

Yi Sha
KLEINER KLAPPSTUHL

nach der operation von meinem vater
schenk ich den klappstuhl zum warten
vor dem operationssaal
einem fremden stehenden angehörigen
so kommt es im Xijing-Spital in der nacht
auf den langen leeren gängen
zu einer verfolgungsjagd
ich renn mit dem rollbett von meinem vater
der fremde hinter mir
rennt mit zehn yuan in der hand
lieber fremder
lass mich ziehen
was ich irgendwem geben kann
in dieser stunde
ist halt nichts anders

《小马扎》

父亲的手术做完后
我把在手术室外
坐等的小马扎
送给了一个陌生人
站着等待的病人家属
于是在夜晚的西京医院
长长而空旷的走廊上
出现了雷人的一幕
我推着父亲的床跑
一个陌生人
在后面追我
手中高举着十块钱纸币
陌生人
快别追了
你就成全我吧
我能够给予别人的
也就是一只小马扎

TRAUM 1185

ich bin ein pferd
ein pferd das gern flieht
leute sagen sie fürchten
wenn ich wieder flieh
werd ich verrückt
aber ich glaub
flieh ich nicht
werd ich sterben
also muss ich weg

《梦(1185)》

我是一匹马
一匹爱逃跑的马
人们恐吓我说
如果再逃跑
我就会疯狂
我反倒认为
如果不逃跑
我就会死亡
所以还得跑

SOMEONE SHOULD UNDERSTAND THIS POEM – 朱剑 Zhu Jian

SOMEONE SHOULD UNDERSTAND THIS POEM

a bunch of people and I
sat on a wooden bench
to wait for a train.
I fell asleep,
when I woke up,
no-one was there.
a train
in the form of cigarette ash
stood in front.

QINGHAI LAKE SAND DUNES

become quiet
they become quiet
sand dunes become quiet
each day after sunset
tourists are welcome
get to play in the sun
sand dunes are waiting
till people are done

安静下来
可以安静下来
沙丘它每天
都安静下来
游客们来了
游客能玩
沙丘它可以
安静下来

空洞消息

爬山的路修得很棒
爬山以后很想吃水果
上世纪八十年代发现的
北纬35度苹果真的很甜
唐朝法輪寺
老松树长出宋朝的塔
文革毁了碑文
有人说老毛写得好
有老和尚摸我的毛
有人说天津死了一千
或许更多

梦里过马路

梦见小时候熟悉的街头
等着过马路
绿灯可能没了
想闭着眼睛快点过去
怕还没有到对面,不敢打开眼睛
一打开醒来了。

WARSAW

八月 3, 2015

Warsaw bicycleWARSAW

the eagle is not beautiful
the shadow of the eagle is
they have a chapel for Katyn
across from uprising square
the uprising was very brave
they won at first
the Red Army was there
just across the river
but the Red Army waited
then the Germans came back
they razed Warsaw City
the Red Army waited
that was in 1944
before that was the Ghetto
the Ghetto uprising
Stalin’ s culture palace stands in its place
in the place of the Ghetto
Katyn
was in 1940
tens of thousands of Polish officers
killed by Soviet intelligence
Ukrainians too
they have a chapel for Katyn
across from Uprising Square
tens of thousands of names
and a beautiful eagle
they say
I like its shadow

Warsaw eagle
SUNSHINE IN WARSAW
Jacqueline Winter

A beautiful summer morning. Biking through the historical center. The bike return station is next to the monument of the 1944 uprising against the Nazis. HOW many dead and wounded, while the Red Army literally stood by on the outskirts of town? And the city dynamited and emptied of its population…you would never think it, looking at it now.
Across the street, inside a church, a simple and gut- wrenching memorial to the Katyn massacre victims. With a side memorial for the Smolensk plane crash of 2010, which I fail to understand. Must ask a local where they see the connection- if they do.
And what a tough people: exiled, murdered, bombed, map redrawn…yet they rebuilt splendidly from the rubble while still dirt- poor and were the first to put up meaningful nonviolent resistance to the Soviets back in 1980. And had free elections as soon as they could.
Swinoujscie – Swinemünde had public exhibits around town about their common history with Germany, bilingual. A strongly German city which was bombed flat 55% for being a naval base. No mention of the pre-war German population in Warsaw, though…
The Warsaw “Stalin cake” / Palace of Culture and Science is still on the grounds of the Jewish ghetto. That uprising was in 1943. A few meters of markings on the ground to show where its outer wall once stood. That is all.

ATTITUDE, EMPATHY AND SO ON
Martin Winter

People are trying to get by everywhere. First World vs. Third World (or Second World) creates issues of privilege. Just like different kinds of background, experience, heritage make for issues of disconnect within a common country or region. Why are people stupid enough to vote for or even work with racist rightist arseholes in Hitler-spawning Austria? Austria-Hungary-Germany whatever? My friends in China try to get by. Like people everywhere. Some get to express how they detest the state they are in. Some more than others. Like people anywhere, more or less. Some have their audience, as famous poets or fiction writers. Yes, things have improved very much in Taiwan, and in China there is the same repression going on in some ways. Yes, everyone is taking part more or less, including foreigners. All in all, foreign media is a good influence. Most of it. Everywhere probably, in every country, reporting from any outsider’s stance or background can be very refreshing. I was privileged in Taiwan and in China, in Eastern Europe, even in America. On the other hand, I am in between. Every day I talk and work with people and texts from different worlds. It’s a great life, all in all.

ARRIVALS – Su Bugui 苏不归 《接机时》

ARRIVALS

people’s names on the boards at arrivals
written in english
or in chinese
written in arabic script
at international arrivals, leaning against the railing
in the corridor along the exit
people are swarming
some of the names carried off by a smile or a hug
some of the names haven’t arrived at being carried off
they are waiting together
becoming familiar
some even looking in one direction
standing next to each other
beginning to talk

WAITING IN LINE – 艾蒿 Ai Hao

waiting in line

Ai Hao
WAITING IN LINE

at the hospital waiting in line
to pay for registration
suddenly he tells me
he wants to go to the bathroom
I let him stand in line
while I go to ask at the counter
then I come back to tell him
go to the second floor, take a left then go straight
it is on the right side
when you keep to the right you can see it
after a while he comes back
all confused.
“I couldn’t find it,
you know I can’t read
everywhere they’re waiting in line
and I didn’t smell
anything like a toilet!”

爱来了,午夜也已临近
我们像两个掘墓人
偶尔在荒野碰见,互相
给对壮胆,赞美死亡

Schwarzenbergplatz, waiting for streetcar 71

One call
One pine
One snowy path
The wind in the pine
The pines on the square
The crows in the air
The snow all around
The monument. To end the war.
As futile as easter.
Quite lasting, you know.
The sun from afar.
