HVAR / GLAGOLI

a man enters the vineyard,
sits and weeps at the edge of the island,
where God no longer awaits the stars
to reveal himself to the sea,
the woman rises and jumps into the sea,
One and the Other are silent
 
I now know that nothing could have
happened: a jump is a jump,
the sea merely the sea, a lone star
just God who doesn’t want to be
questioned about this thing
at all

HVAR / GLAGOLI

HVAR / GLAGOLI

muškarac ulazi u vinograd, 
sjeda i plače na rubu otoka, gdje Bog
više ne čeka zvijezde da bi se
objavio moru, žena ustaje
i skače u more, Jedan i Drugi
šute
 
ja sada znam da se nije moglo
dogoditi ništa: skok je skok,
more samo more, jedna zvijezda
samo Bog, koji uopće i ne želi
da ga se, sada, bilo što o tome
pita
Close
