TO THE MEMORY OF THE OLYMPICS

 

At the height of summer, Olympics in Spain

Crazed citizens, day & night watching TV

Disgusting extremes, disturbing my dreams

I'd rather stay calm, you could say

I would not be in spasms

I prefer gentle exertions

Instead of tiring yourself spitting blood

Like some kind of monster. I hate repetition.

I don't want to watch people shouting exulted

Like raging idiots, lunatic movements

Nazis, Cultural Revolution

 

Although I'm yearning for the old Greeks

Natural people, clear autumn skies

Beautiful bodies, running in freedom

Nothing like that today I'm afraid

 

I don't yearn for the strong, for the muscled

For the nimble champions

No, to be strong and mighty means in my language

You could be frail and weak in your body

But if you are like Hu Shi, Zhou Zuoren

You are a hero, a really great person

 

Go to sleep, my compatriots

Or is the national anthem your opium?

After they win three hundred gold medals

You are an invalid just like before

Go cook yourself a mung bean soup

To clear your senses

 

At the height of summer, Lanzhou is not too bad

Ignore the papers, no idle talking

Crickets at noon, frogs in the night

Keep time for reading, and a good sleep

 

Tr. MW, May 2014
