Kubrick Poetry‧ 七月‧ 大暑

時間:2010/7/25 (Sun) 5:00pm-6:00pm

地點: 油麻地 Kubrick(next to Broadway Cinemathèque, 3 Public Square St.)

主持:Polly Ho, Florence Ng, Wong Wai Yim


住處附近有一個山林,一片廣闊的天空。山林住有唐狗,他們到了晚上十一時半後才會下來,此時,繞著山腳的行人路只有零星的路人。唐狗會以一隻探路,另一隻等待同伴的信息後才會從草叢中冒出來。在昏黃的街燈下,牠們清潔和勻稱的身軀呈奶黃色,漂亮的尾巴神氣地向上翹起。牠們見到人不會好奇也不會抓狂,人一邊狗一邊,各自朝自己的目的地走去。

這一兩天在同樣的時間同樣的地點卻沒有發現牠們的踪影。我不敢多想,不希望牠們應了潘國靈所寫的:「真實的動物叫苦連天,而虛擬的,受寵無驚。」

我們寫詩的人是不是也像晚上十一時半後從汗蒸的山林走下來透透氣的生靈?大暑是詩人的繆思還是噩夢?


歡迎各參與者帶來詩歌創作。

Kubrick Poetry is open to the public. Youre welcome to bring along your own poems or poems you like to share with us.

六月詩會後記




(Florence Ng)


因緣際會,看了電影資料館播放的德語片ClaraClara是作曲家舒曼的妻子,Clara自己本身也是知名的鋼琴家,一生致力推廣舒曼的音樂。根據維基百科的資料,Clara是現代鋼琴音樂的革命者及奠基者。


這樣一位出色女性的故事,配上流麗的琴音,不但縈繞了整個晚上,還靈養我至今。人生中能夠縈繞讓你低迴的事有多少?達到「起舞弄清影」那個境界的有又多少?





六月,介乎燥熱與溫婉之間,淡雅的詩友喜蓮,帶著她純淨脫俗的畫,透過孩子般的眼睛,走進香港的永利街、藍屋,以詩歌說愛,思考,歎息;詩中有畫,畫中有詩。從加拿大學成回來的Adam,介紹他如何用手機和短文捕捉一瞬即逝的影像,「加拿大認識的香港是陳奕迅,香港是否只有這些?我回來後發現香港有《字花》等文化產物,也只有回到這塊土地才會看到。」真願有更多人發掘發揮發酵「香港」。第一次來的阿強,第一次用詩歌述這一代年青人的憂愁;「我們詩寫」的青年小風,則分享詩社即時jam詩的潮玩。詩友Oswald用德語朗讀歌德(Goethe)的Der Erlkonig魔王〉,喪失孩子的哀痛令即使不懂德語的人也動容;無獨有偶,座中竟有來自德國的朋友Martin,他倆於是談起來。詩會的終章是為Kubrick poetry長年默默奉獻的義務攝影師Paul的兩輯匈牙利相片(匈牙利的Shoes on the River Danube 和維也納中央墓園),配以音樂家Carrie Yu的爵士樂,大家靜靜傾聽,遊走於異國的街道。


書寫這篇後記之時,六月最後一個週日的畫面和樂聲又再奏起,縈迴不去……






Afterthought of June Kubrick Poetry


One night I happened to watch a movie which depicted the life of the famous German musician and pianist Clara Schumann. I have never imagined that the music of a movie can go beyond the screen and accompany me till now.


Thinking back on our lives, how many moments can travel beyond the past and accompany us till now? Can you count the times when you felt like dancing in a crystal palace in the Milky Way?




June--a month in the season of uncertainty. We gathered at Kubrick as usual. Artist Helene brought along her breathtaking paintings with her poems. She told us her passion and thoughts on local streets and relics. Adam, a boy who comes back from Canada, told us how he used mobile snapshots and thought provoking mini-prose to search for the root of Hong Kong. Ah Keung, another youngster who came for the first time, shared with us his first poem. ‘Siu Fung’ from the poetry club We-er stunned us with We-er’s idea of improvising poems. Oswald moved us with his reading of the original German poem Der Erlkonig by Goethe, which brought him to a discussion with another German participant, Martin. The finale of June Kubrick Poetry was contributed by the humane photos of a trip to Austria and Hungary by Paul, our voluntary photographer. The photos, merged with the beautiful jazz music of Carrie Yu, carried all of us to places afar.


The music of June Kubrick Poetry goes on and on …
