ZHU YU Three Poems early autumn in zhabei Translator’s Note: Zhabei is a district in Shanghai that saw great industri- alization and cultural development in the early twentieth century, before coni fl cts with invading Japanese forces in 1937. After capitalist reforms in the 1980s, it was the formerly colonized areas of Shanghai—the “conces- sions”—which began to flourish while Zhabei was, to a certain extent, left behind. Hongkou, Baoshan, and Putuo are neighboring districts, and the Suzhou River flows through Shanghai to the East China Sea. e t Th rees’ leaves fall, the trash cans are sm eared with the spotless tips of hybrid planes; s oon the tender greens and yellows will give way to um ber. No one’s noticed, but now is its most solemn hour. Emerging from Yonghe Road is Gonghe New Road. The asphalt surface is enclosed within the limp light of the aer ft noon. Thi s is Shanghai Zhabei district; a hundred years past it filled ou t on the branch then in the midst of war wilted quickl y away. Today, line one of the subway passes through its atrophie d bulk, it bursts out and brings to the surface a touch
