ESPETXEKO HAIKUAK/JAILHOUSE HAIKUS

5.

There’s shouting coming
from outside the prison walls.
Climb to the window.

Thousands of people
surrounding the whole prison.
Solidarity.

Surrounded like this,
the prison itself could be
a prisoner now.

ESPETXEKO HAIKUAK/JAILHOUSE HAIKUS

5.

Oihuak datoz
murruen bestaldetik.
Igo leihora.

Mila bat lagun
kartzela inguratzen.
Elkartasuna.

Inguratuta,
espetxea bera da
orain presoa.
