PROGRESS

All the cars in the rain
whizzing past my window,
headlights on,
passing along the bend in the road,
I hope they are on their way somewhere
and are all different cars
and not a series
being sent round and round
over and over again for no reason
by the same invisible madman.

VOORUITGANG

VOORUITGANG

Van alle auto’s in de regen
die suizen langs mijn raam,
koplampen aan,
en die passeren door de bocht van de weg,
hoop ik maar dat ze ergens heengaan
en dat het telkens andere auto’s zijn
en niet een reeks
die zonder reden telkens opnieuw
wordt rondgezonden
door steeds dezelfde onzichtbare gek.
