Nadia Adina Rose

[A bed stands on its hind legs]

A bed stands on its hind legs
puts its hooves into slippers
takes morning from the freezer
and defrosts under the pillow.
A dream still riding on its back
pulls the reins:
Come back.

מִטָּה נֶעֱמֶדֶת עַל רַגְלֶיהָ הָאֲחוֹרִיּוֹת

מִטָּה נֶעֱמֶדֶת עַל רַגְלֶיהָ הָאֲחוֹרִיּוֹת

מִטָּה נֶעֱמֶדֶת עַל רַגְלֶיהָ הָאֲחוֹרִיּוֹת
מַכְנִיסָה אֶת פַּרְסוֹתֶיהָ לְנַעֲלֵי בַּיִת
מוֹצִיאָה בֹּקֶר מֵהַמַּקְפִּיא
וּמַפְשִׁירָה מִתַּחַת לַכָּרִית.
חֲלוֹם עֲדַיִן רוֹכֵב עַל גַּבָּהּ
מוֹשֵׁךְ בָּרֶסֶן:
חִזְרִי.

[A bed stands on its hind legs]

A bed stands on its hind legs

A dream still riding on its back

Come back.

[A bed stands on its hind legs]

A bed stands on its hind legs
puts its hooves into slippers
takes morning from the freezer
and defrosts under the pillow.
A dream still riding on its back
pulls the reins:
Come back.
