revolucija revolution

(from Slovene)
po tem, ko sem vso noč in pravzaprav ves teden
imela napade panike. zdaj se počutim svobodno,
svobodno pred iluzijami, ki sem jih imela ta leta,
da obstajajo združena fronta, solidarnost, prihodnost
ali širši krog podpornih prijateljev. veljam samo toliko,
kolikor bo nekdo pritisnil svoje ustnice na moj trebuh.
after a whole night and in fact a whole week of fits
of panic. i now feel free, free of the illusions i've had
these past years that there exists solidarity, a joined front,
a future, or a larger circle of supportive friends. i'm worth
something only when someone wants to press their lips
against my stomach.
