NOVEMBRA ZMERAJ NOVEMBER ALWAYS
Ifigenija Simonvic tr. Anthony Rudolf & the poet

Novembra zmeraj mislim na kakije.
Vem za drevo. Ob cesti med Podnanosom
in Vipavo raste med grmovjem. Novembra
so veje gole. Samo oranžni kakiji
krasijo sivino. Vsak november hrepenim.
 





Iz avtobusa ne vidim nobene domačije.
Moram se ustaviti. Moram priti nekega
novembra. Moram iti. Moram iti. Zdaj.
Vsak november hrepenim. Tako kot zdaj.

In November
I always
think of the persimmon.
I know of a tree
On the road
between Podnanos and Vipava.

It grows
in the wild. In November
its branches are bare.
Only persimmon
gives colour to the greyness.
Every November
I am filled with longing.

I have to stop. One November
I have to go.
I have to. Now.
Every November
I am filled with longing.
Just like now.
