JOVICA IVANOVSKI: TEN POEMS

A CARPET OF GENES
AS WHEN SOMEONE IN AUTUMN…
ESCAPE FROM…
THEY ARE OF ALL KINDS
WATER COVER
MEMORIES, AS IF NOT MINE
CROSSING ALSO NEEDS EXERCISE
IMPROVISATION
ADULTERER’S
I’D RATHER SHOOT


WATER COVER

A bed-cover of water,
a pillow of waves.
The mermaid beneath sighs
     and provokes the sailors.
The sea bottom remained airless
     at the reach of his palm.
The thought is a motorboat that glides
across its watery surface of the brain.
It’s an oceanographer, a Cousteau
seeking for Calypso.
Joseph is in Venice,
but didn’t deserve such neighbourhood.
Perhaps at sea, buried
          in a translucent shroud.
But not in a mass grave
undermined by chthonic currents
where the bodies end
like pickles in a jar.
