DJOKOVIC‘S EXISTENCE – 伊沙 – DIE EXISTENZ VON DJOKOVIC

Yi Sha 《历史与现实》
GESCHICHTE UND WIRKLICHKEIT

voriges jahr im frühling in wien
war ich oft bei martin
rund um seine wohnung
sind lauter baustellen.
“viele von den arbeitern hier
sind in den 90er jahren
im jugoslawischen bürgerkrieg
nach österreich geflüchtet.”
ah, für mich als chinese
war das auch ein teil
unserer geschichte
den man uns nur
zum teil mitgeteilt hat
und in europa
ist es die wirklichkeit
mit der sie alle
umgehen müssen.

Yi Sha 《历史与现实》
HISTORY AND REALITY

last year in spring in vienna
I often went to martin’s home;
many construction sites
in the neighborhood.
“these workers around here,
most of them came in the 1990s,
refugees from the war in yugoslavia.”
martin said something like that.
oh, for me as a chinese person
this is another part of our history
they told us only in part.
whereas in europe,
it is the reality
they all have to face.

《历史与现实》

去年春天在维也纳
老去马丁家
他家四周有不少
建筑工地
马丁说:在这儿
干活儿的工人
差不多都是
上世纪90年代
南斯拉夫内战
跑过来的难民
哦,对中国人来说
那又是一段
被人有选择地告知
我们的历史
而在欧洲
是他们全部都要
承受的现实

DJOKOVICS EXISTENZ

ich hab vergessen

坏印象?"
他回答:
"是的,当然!"

BREXIT AND VOTES IN AUSTRIA – TWO MAJOR HEADACHES OF 2016

七月 4, 2016
via Rhys Goode and Didi Kirsten Tatlow

via Rhys Goode and Didi Kirsten Tatlow

I guess this chart shows very clearly what a huge mistake it was for Cameron to play the tough Eu-sceptic all these years, promising this utterly stupid referendum. There are many frustrated people in the UK. There are many frustrated people in the US and in many other countries. One big factor is the so-called neo-liberal economy, unleashed by Thatcher and Reagan. The rich getting richer, the poor getting poorer. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders addresses this fundamental problem. Bill Clinton and Tony Blair thought there could be a Third Way. Did it work? In some ways, for a while. Bush etc. wrecked very much, Blair and much of Europe helped them. Then came Obama. Nobels for him and the EU. For peace? Yes, the EU on the whole has been a factor for peace and understanding and prosperity for decades, despite all the faults. But the EU failed to make peace in the 1990s in Yugoslavia. The US stepped in, finally. The whole thing is still very shameful and problematic in retrospect. And the EU was not helping. So the EU is not able to make or bring peace when war breaks out. Neither is Obama. And neither the EU on the whole nor Obama nor Hillary will address what U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders addresses. Trump addresses much the same frustrations. With lies. Cameron and Boris Johnson etc. addressed the frustrations with blaming the EU. With lies and rumours. So what will happen? We in Austria are having another run-off vote soon. The third vote on a new president in six or seven months. Let’s hope Alexander Van der Bellen wins again, or Austria will be worse than Hungary. I guess two factors might help van der Alexander Van der Bellen: Hillary Clinton and everyone not completely benighted together will be fighting Trump in September. Trump and the FPÖ are the same thing, only the latter is worse. We have not addressed this enough here in Austria, but we will have to. The second factor against the shameless liars is the prevailing feeling of Brexit regret.

BREXIT III

in 1996
austria voted to join the eu
i was either in china
or in romania
or in between
there was war
in yugoslavia
most of 1994
i taught german
to bosnian refugees
the eu did nothing
to stop the war
they said the economy
would be much better
one common currency
each person benefits
I didn’t believe them
but smallmindedness
there was a hope against smallmindedness
two thirds voted for the eu
yesterday i read in a paper
a chinese paper printed in europe
in bosnia they still hope to join
we know the eu is not perfect
but for bosnia there’s no other way
they say
what did austria do
close the balkan route
keep refugees out
some people say
austria encouraged them
to split up yugoslavia
in 1990
anyway is there another way
against orban
in every country or worse
is this a poem
or just thinking out loud
i don’t know
what will change
the eu is still rich
on the whole
it was a project
to help poorer countries
i don’t know if that’s true
fuck the tories
fuck thatcher
let it all unravel
i don’t know
i guess no-one knows
somehow europe
should stand together
somehow we say we
hope for each other
bosnia
greece
latvia
portugal
everyone scraping
hope 4 our children

AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION (2)

四月 30, 2016
Baum - Photo by Thomas Palfinger

Photo by Thomas Palfinger

I am going to vote for Van der Bellen. I do love the land where I come from. The land where I come from is central Europe. When Yugoslavia burned, I saw it on TV in China, and I wept, because I recognized the houses, the landscape. But Van der Bellen and his Green Party leaders are wrong when they say we should not let the FPOE divide Austria. There has been too much tolerance, too much cooperation. Too much harmony. They are the enemy of this republic. They question the laws against promoting Fascism. They behave in a way that makes them unfit to represent Austria. Everyone knows that. But all the other parties – except the Greens – have tolerated them, enabled them, cooperated with them. With the enemies of our constitution.
There should be demonstrations, rallies, concerts. Against the FPOE. For refugees. Like last October, in the Vienna City election. It worked then.

Click on the picture to read more in English.

Wenn ich das Wort Faschismuskeule hoere, moechte ich gerne selbst mit einem Holzpruegel zuschlagen. Alle Reaktionen aus dem Ausland gegen die FPOE waren und sind berechtigt. Wer das Verbotsgesetz und den antifaschistischen Konsens infrage stellt, auf denen die Verfassung beruht, der darf dieses Land nicht repraesentieren. Wer das nicht wahrhaben will – und das war oft auch die SPOE, das waren OEVP und NEOS – der braeuchte sich ueber solche Reaktionen schon lange nicht mehr zu wundern. Strache bedeutet woertlich Angst und Schrecken. Wer Angst und Schrecken verhindern will, muss das klar sagen und danach handeln. Wenigstens hat Alexander van der Bellen gestern klar gesagt, dass er gegen TTIP ist und es nicht unterschreiben wird. Die grosse Unzufriedenheit in der Bevoelkerung muss Van der Bellen noch mehr ernst nehmen. Die Gruenen tun viel fuer Arbeiter und Angestellte und gegen die neoliberale Unverschaemtheit. Bei den Blauen ist es umgekehrt. Das muss man klarmachen, immer wieder, im Detail. Sonst werden wir alle erschlagen.

SPRING IS A WONDERFUL SEASON – April 15, 2016 in Vienna. #Schutzbefohlene *

SPRING IS A WONDERFUL SEASON

April 15, 2016 in Vienna. #Schutzbefohlene *
Spring is a wonderful season,
trees spilling their green.
Some are cut, some are planted.
Downstairs across they are planting a park,
used to be train tracks.

Last year we had refugees at the station.

Spring is a wonderful season.

They said it was 90,000 people or so
in all of Austria,
mostly in a few months,
who wanted to stay in this country.
Ten times more went on to Germany.
So many people wanted to help.
Train workers, even police.
Volunteers, often more than enough.
We live in the neighbourhood.
My daughter Maia went down to play with the refugee children.
After a while she knew the volunteers.
It was safe.
The refugees staid down by the station.
Some people from our house took in refugees.

There was discussion to use the shop,
the empty shop downstairs in this new house,
for refugee quarters.
Just for the winter.
That shop has bathrooms and everything.

But then they closed down at the station.
It was in December.
They took them with buses, they said, from the border.
On to Germany.
If you said you wanted Germany, they let you in.
They were building a fence.
So in December, the station was empty.
Maybe Mid-December.
No quarters in our house.
But people still coming in.
Coming up through the Balkans, used to be Yugoslavia.

In early January we played Tarot down in the library.
We have a library in our house.
And we play cards, for a few pennies.
On Friday nights.
We have had readings, and even theatre.
Gudrun and Peter, they built a stage.
Downstairs in the big common room.
We had a night reciting Bob Dylan.
Down you masters of war.

But then in January, there was Cologne.
In Cologne at the train station, on New Year’s Night.
Hundreds of women harassed.
Raped, one or two.
Many foreign men there at the train station.
Not enough police, or police doing nothing.
We should discuss this, one of us said.
We had been playing cards.
What is there to discuss, there ‘s not much in the news.
Maybe social networks did play a role.
I want to discuss this.
These refugees becoming a problem.
What is there to discuss, there’s not much in the news.
These refugees becoming a problem.
A discussion is stupid, without any facts.
So one of us went away in a huff.

Later I was away, I was in China.
In southern China, a poetry trip.
From southern China to Southeast Asia.
Self-organized.
The year before they went to Vietnam.
Wrote some good poetry.
Vietnam wars in the background,
including China attacking Vietnam.
And other stuff, daily life.
Morning routine.

This year I went with them through Southeast Asia.
Poets from all over China. 16 or 17.
One or two guides.
Guides of Chinese extraction.
Thailand, Singapore. And Malaysia.
Then back to Nanning, to southern China.

Poetry meetings, almost every night.
Sometimes more.
One time in the airport.
Plane was delayed, nothing better to do, call a poetry meeting.
Poems written there on the road.

Yi Sha has this dream, before every border.
Dreaming they won’t let him through.
Normally he writes down all his dreams.
Makes for good poetry.
But not this time, he was afraid.
Only when we were safe in Malaysia.

They had a crackdown, in Kuala Lumpur.
There was an attack in Indonesia.
Muslim majority in Malaysia, too.
If the father is Muslim, the child has to be Muslim.
Not Chinese or anything else.
It was not like this before.
At least according to our guide.
They have elections and a Sultan.
Or they call him a King, at least in Chinese.

It’s a beautiful country.
Tribes in the woods.
Our guide lived with a tribe for a week.
For a project at university.
She was very young, has a small child.
She speaks Fukien Chinese.
Mandarin with the tourists, of course.
Liked to talk about sex.
Malaysian men with many wives.
Just a few Muslims, who can afford it.

On February first, I came back to Austria.
Refugees still coming, though not so many.
News had been shifting.
Creating a climate against refugees.
We put a limit on loving our neighbours.
That was a poster.
The foreign minister, he’s very young.
The interior ministress.
She’s not there any more now, she’ll become governess.
Governor of Lower Austria.
And the candidate.
Their candidate for Federal President.

President is just a figurehead here.
Like in Germany.
In Germany, he is elected in parliament.
So he is from the majority party.
He or she.

In Austria, everyone votes for the President.
Everyone should.
Everyone is automatically registered, every citizen.
Nowadays you can vote in advance.
Local district office.
Ballot per mail, or there at the office.
That guy for limits on loving your neighbour won’t make it.
He’s trailing far behind in the polls.
But his policies are federal policy.

They let that happen, the Social Democrats.
They are the majority.
But they let it happen, they are just like the rightists.
News had been shifting.
These refugees becoming a problem.
Some Social Democrats work with the Rightists.
Those other Rightists.
That Freedom Party.
Some Neo-Nazis.
Some Neo-Nazis cling to this party.
Some were just Liberals.
In the 1980s they were for joining the European Community.
Anyway now they are shameless Rightists.
Austria should not be ashamed, they proclaim.
Including old Nazis, including SS.

And Social Democrats think they should work with them.
But they are trailing, the Social Democrats.
Maybe their candidate will fall behind,
though not as far as the one with the limits.
They are far behind, both of them.

Three candidates are in front.
Front-runner is from the Green Party.
They always were for refugees.
And there is a woman.
Not from a party.
A former judge.
Liberal views, for the economy.
Definitely not from the Left.
Those two were leading.
But Freedom Party candidate is closing up.

No, he doesn’t say we are all Germans.
Though he says many things.
Austrians first, don’t be ashamed.
Don’t be ashamed of anything.
Works better than just talk about limits.

So I’ve voted already, ten days in advance.

I’m afraid.
That Freedom guy is worse than Trump.
Similar causes why they are so popular.

Austria is very small.
President is just a figurehead.
But I’m afraid.

Austria becomes Hungary.
Headline in Switzerland, two days ago.
Rightist government, fences.
Italy protesting, not only Greece.
Against Austria, in the EU.

EU has been weak.
Rightist reactions in Eastern Europe.
Rightist rhetoric against refugees.
From Social Democrats, some of them.
EU is weak, was very weak in the Yugoslav wars.

Mid-April sun is shining outside.
Spring is a beautiful season,
trees spilling their green.
Some are cut, some are planted.
Downstairs across they are planting a park.

*Schutzbefohlene means people placed under protection. It is the title of a play by Elfriede Jelinek, the Austrian author who won the Nobel prize for literature in 2004. She wrote the play in 2013. It was performed, by refugees, at University of Vienna on April 14, 2016, when a group of rightists stormed the stage. They sprayed red paint and reportedly injured performers, including children. I wrote the long poem above on Friday morning, April 15. I had not been at the performance and knew nothing about the incident before my text was finished. But I think my text works as background reading, at least.

SCHANDE

三月 3, 2016

SCHANDE

Österreich ist eine Schande.
Wir haben die Balkan-Route verstopft.
Jetzt wird es wieder wie vor einem Jahr.

Im August war da ein Lastwagen,
ein Lastwagen voller Leichen
auf einer Straße im Osten Österreichs
nicht weit vom Flughafen Wien.
Ungefähr 70 Leichen,
nicht wenige Kinder.

Nach diesem Lastwagen,
wann haben sie dann die Grenzen geöffnet?
Nicht alle Grenzen waren gleich offen.
Aber die Eisenbahn
war für die Flüchtlinge offen,
jedenfalls eine Zeitlang.

Warum sind voriges Jahr
soviele Leute auf einmal gekommen?
Wieviele Jahre ist Krieg in Syrien?
Im Libanon wurden voriges Jahr
die Essensrationen halbiert.
Die UNO hatte kein Geld
für die Flüchtlinge.

Das war lange bekannt. Aber einige Staaten,
darunter Österreich, wollten nicht zahlen.

Also sind viele Leute gekommen.

Wann riskierst du dein Leben,
wann riskierst du das Leben
deiner Kinder?

Wieviele Leute sollen ertrinken?
Wieviele Lastwagen?

Unter den Nazis,
wie hat man die serbischen Juden ermordet?
Hauptsächlich mit Lastwagen.

Man hat ihnen irgend etwas versprochen.
Die Kinder hat man mit Zuckerln getröstet.
Und dann auf der Fahrt
gingen die Auspuffgase ins Innere.

Die Methode war praktisch.
Keine langen Eisenbahnwege,
das war zu der Zeit
auch gar nicht mehr sicher.

Wieviele Lastwagen,
wieviele Menschen?
Wieviele Nazis
waren aus Österreich?
Wieviele können sich noch erinnern,
im ehemaligen Jugoslawien,
in Griechenland?

Österreich hat die Balkan-Route verstopft.
Es ist eine Schande.

可耻

三月 3, 2016

維馬丁
《可耻》

这几天奥地利有点可耻,
他们堵住了巴尔干通道。

事情相当于一年以前。
去年八月份有一辆卡车,
卡车装满了尸体
留在奥地利公路
离維也納机场不远。
尸体也许七十左右,
有不少小孩。

卡车发现了以后
具体是什么时候
大家都开了边境?
也不是全部同时都开了,
不过打开了铁路
让难民经过。

去年难民到底为什么
那么多人集体到欧洲?
叙利亚战争已经几年了。
主要原因是黎巴嫩
人家难民已经没有吃的。
联合国帮助难民的组织
已经没有钱。

他们也早就说了。
但主要是西方富裕国家
他们故意給得太少,給得慢,
包括奥地利。
所以联合国组织给难民的食物
只能給一半。

所以难民集体都来了
尽量到欧洲最富裕的国家。

你冒生命危险
经常冒全家生命危险
有不少小孩
主要是没别的办法。

还需要多少人淹死?
还需要多少卡车?

二战时候
塞尔维亚等等的犹太人
被纳粹集体害得用什么方法?
就是用很多卡车。

跟他们说都去搬家。
給小孩糖果让他们上车。
然后开车的时候
拿排气管排气到里面。
他们很快就死了,
除了前面开车的人。

这个方法有好处。
不用装满火车
运到遥远的波兰、
北欧、乌克兰等等。
那些在1944年
说不定失去了控制。

所以卡车很方便。
有不少纳粹是奥地利人。
有多少人记得?
现在的希腊,
前南斯拉夫
有多少人记得?
奥地利这几天
也许有点可耻。

the sun needs a little time
I have always loved you
I shouted and cursed
fog and frost
everything hidden in fog in the morning
kids are in school
my bicycle’s gone
my mother’s bicycle, blue, rather old
my father’s bike disappeared also
when I was small you brought me on your bike
I haven’t written much about you
my father my mother
I am a writer
I wrote many poems
most of the time
we could not stand each other
I and my father most of the time
I rode a bicycle
austria taiwan china the cities
sometimes the mountains
along the danube when I was small
with my father
it was very good
in romania I drove a car
it was a vw looked rather broken
like an old bicycle ran rather well
the sun needs a while
I should be translating
should be writing letters
call one or two people
take care go on working
chongqing has fog every day
no-one rides a bicycle
there are lots of stairs
nowadays there are highways
nato bombed serbia
it was on tv
the land and the roofs
I come from austria
I loved yugoslavia as a small child
I watched and I cried
then I rode my bicycle
up and down chongqing
nato bombed the chinese embassy
no-one knew why
you can try to explain
maybe if they had bombed them in bosnia
the yugoslav army not the chinese
no srebrenica no war in kosovo
I only knew this is where I come from
and now there is war
you can try to explain
come you masters of war
I hope I can write a little more

ich hab so viele gedichte geschrieben
ich hab mich nicht vertragen
mit meinem vater
fast immer haben wir uns nicht vertragen
ich bin viel rad gefahren
in österreich in taiwan in china
in rumänien mit einem wagen
der wagen sah aus wie ein altes fahrrad
es war ein vw sie ist gut gefahren
autos sind weiblich in vielen sprachen
die sonne braucht ein bisschen zeit
ich sollt übersetzen
sollt korrespondieren
sollt leute anrufen
sollt mich kümmern

die nato hat serbien bombardiert
ich hab es im fernsehen gesehen

ich komme aus österreich
und war als kind in jugoslawien
ich hab geweint
dann bin ich mit dem fahrrad
in den straßen gefahren
hinauf und hinunter
die nato hat die chinesische botschaft
niemand wusste warum
ausländer waren auf einmal verdächtig
man kann versuchen den krieg zu erklären
vielleicht hätten bomben zur rechten zeit
srebrenica verhindert
und damit auch den kosovokrieg
man kann versuchen den krieg zu erklären
es gibt viele erklärungen über die jahre
ich wusste nur ich komm von dort
dort ist jetzt krieg
come you masters of war
ich hoffe ich kann noch etwas schreiben

TIME TO SAY NO!

三月 8, 2013

No

Time To Say No! is an initiative inspired by Malala Yousafzai. There is a presentation in Brazil today. Yesterday there was a press conference and poetry reading in Vienna, organized by Austrian PEN. Time to Say No! is about rights. Education and dignity, which means not to be violated, are basic rights of all human beings. We heard female writers from Kenya, Sudan, Iran, India, Bulgaria, a wonderful male voice from former Yugoslavia, Austrian voices: Philo Ikonya, Ishraga Hamid, Sarita Jemanani, Boško Tomašević, Dorothea Nürnberg…. And two poems from China. The first one was “YOUR RED LIPS, A WORDLESS HOLE你空洞無聲的欲言紅唇 by Sheng Xue 盛雪, English translation by Maiping Chen and Brenda Vellino, German translation by Angelika Burgsteiner. The second poem from China was Lily’s Story 丽丽传 by Zhao Siyun 赵思云. The book Time To Say No, edited by Philo Inkonya and Helmuth Niederle, also contains poems by Ana Schoretits, Chantelle Tiong 张依蘋, Hong Ying 虹影, Reet Kudu, Wu Runsheng 吴润生  and many, many others.
