AT THE AIRPORT TO PICK UP MY DAUGHTER

 

today is september 28

my daughter is on a plane coming to see me in beijing

actually I wanted to see her and lured her with Beijing

 

I arrive at the airport one hour early

I am even thinking if I arrive an hour before

I can see her that much earlier

 

so many airplanes coming and going

for me it's like every one carries my daughter

every plane on the sky roars like my daughter when she is running

 

the plane has come down from the sky

my daughter is coming out

we are looking at each other, without speaking. a little shy.

 

my daughter has grown very tall.

I hug her, she says: "mama, I'm heavy,

you better not pick me up".

 

she says: "mama, I have to pee",

while I am holding her and she is peeing she says:

"mama, I will pee on you!"

 

we are in the airport toilet.

I am still holding her wishing she'd pee on me

like that little shaft running out of her, she could not hold it while I changed her diapers.

HOW CAN A SPIRIT-TREE FALL ASLEEP PEACEFULLY AMONG THE FEAR

 

Sweet dreams, my dear

I try to soothe you after the rage

Lightly, lightly patting your branches

Making you deep blue clothes out of warmth

So you fall asleep safe and sound in the night of the spirits

If you are afraid

I will enter deep into your fears and stir the water

I am good at that game

I'm very good at telling myself the second I close my eyes

The world is at peace.

AT DU FU'S "STRAW COTTAGE" IN CHENGDU

 

thin and slender

thin and slender. that must be the image

it goes without saying

the sorrowful poet

the nation, the people, they all make him worry

more fat is forbidden

and laughter's forbidden

so the dufu you're seeing

(the dufu that's everywhere)

bronze dufu

stone dufu

clay dufu

paper dufu

the same slender stature

of misery

as if he'd been born like that

I am thinking

the artist must have been frightened stupid

by the dufu inside his mind
