TISOČDEVETSTOZDAJ NINETEEN HUNDRED AND NOW
Ifigenija Simonvic tr. Anthony Rudolf & the poet

krvaviš pred koncem
te je konca strah
da krvaviš in ti vidim
v očeh vulkan ki se
pripravljaš (pa ne pretiravam
pa strah ni pretiran)
pa ne vem ali te je

......strah zase ali te je
......strah zame in strah
......zate in zanj
......in strah za druge
......in za tiste strah
......ki ne veva zanje
......(pa ne pretiravam
......pa strah ni pretiran)
......ki bojo prišli
......če jih bomo čakali
......(pa ne pretiravam
......pa strah ni pretiran)
......če se bomo prepustili
......čakanju
......(pa ne vem če smo
......učakani zadosti
......pa ne pretiravam)

stiskam te besno
in ti šarim po bradi
(pa ne vem
ali naj počakam do konca)




you fear the end
I see in your eyes
a volcano
about to erupt
(I do not exaggerate
the fear is not exaggerated)
but I am not sure


......if you are scared for yourself or for me
......for you and you and him or for those
......we do not know about
......(I do not exaggerate
......the fear is not exaggerated)
......or for those
......who will still come
......if we wait for them
......(I do not exaggerate
......the fear is not exaggerated)
......but I do not know
......if we are capable of waiting
......(I do not exaggerate
......the fear is not exaggerated)



I am embracing you in fury
I am caressing your beard
and I am not sure
if I will wait until the end
