The place where I write: Yan Jun [China]

Posted in Autoren / poets, YAN Jun by lyrikline on 18. March 2013

2月20日

一月  我吃书
在沙滩上游泳

二月  世界像切开的洋葱
清洁工回家过年
北冰洋结冰了

没有时间了  我打开电脑
分析着一个词:没有

楼下的公共汽车
乌鸦打开他黑色的钱包

February 20th

January— I eat books
swimming at the beaches

February— the world opens like a cut onion
and the cleaning guy heads home for the New Year
The Arctic freezes in ocean ice

Time is running out. I turn on the computer
to decipher a word: out

Downstairs buses run by
A Crow opens its black wallet

Poem about his “working room” by YAN Jun
Translated from Chinese into English by Mindy Zhang
Photo by Jiantao

i moved to this flat with my wife in 2007.
we have removed some walls to make the kitchen, living room and one bedroom open as one continual space. this corner on the photo is my working space. surrounded by books and cds as everywhere in the flat.
computer. sound card and monitor speakers. telephone. hand write notes. spice smell from kitchen some times.
