DRAČJE IN KORENINE STRIKING ROOT
Ifigenija Simonvic tr. Anthony Rudolf & the poet

šlisati moraš
......kako zaškripajo veke
......kako zaloputnejo
......kako zapahnejo
za zmeraj

kako trava raste ni nič
......kako lasje pokajo ni nič

pustiti moraš
......da zaškripajo veke
......da zaloputnejo močno
da se zapahnejo
za zmeraj

you must listen
......to the song of your eyelids
......crushing air
......cutting light
again and again

to hear grass growing is nothing
......hair crack is nothing

allow
......your eyelids to close
......as loud as they can
never open them again
never open them again
