WHEN DO I NEED A BOYFRIEND? 闫永敏

WHEN DO I WANT A BOYFRIEND?

not when I’ve cooked too much food for myself
not when I’m alone at the movies
not when I cannot move heavy stuff
not when my mom asks me to get married
not when I go to the hospital all by myself
not when I hug myself and cannot sleep
when I put on or take off a dress
the zipper at the back gets stuck in the middle
I think it might be nice to have a boyfriend
zip me up in the morning
zip me out at night

MILK DRIPPING – 闫永敏

MILK DROPS

in the hospital garden
a milk box
lies in
a flower terrace
from the straw
milk keeps dripping
on the leaves
of climbing roses

MILCHTROPFEN

im krankenhausgarten
liegt eine trinkpackung
milch
an der blumenterrasse
vom strohhalm
tropft es in die
rosenblätter

HEART-BROKEN GROUND MEAT – 阎永敏

四月 10, 2015

Herzzerfetzt wie Jiaozifaschiertes

Yan Yongmin
HEART-BROKEN GROUND MEAT FOR PASTA

she was talking again about her stuff
I was falling asleep
but when she said for the first time
“my heart is broken like ground meat for pasta”
I woke up that moment
to tell her she’d said something very interesting
but she cried even more

WHAT TO EAT ON THE GREAT WALL – 闫永敏

what to eat on the great wall

WHAT TO EAT ON THE GREAT WALL

Tomorrow I’m going to Beijing to see the Great Wall!
I couldn’t wait to tell my colleagues.

You better bring something to eat!
On the Great Wall, things are not cheap.

I’ll bring steamed Mantou
and Xian Cai sauerkraut.

You really want to lose face
up on the Great Wall?

I was joking.
I’ll bring milk and bread.
