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


MEMORIES,
AS IF NOT MINE

My thoughts,
deserted islands.
Some other planet.
Memories frozen
in a jar of lard.
Punctured wheels,
Marbles in a circle with a hole.
A flight with a “pony” bike.
The sky blue as an envelope.
A heavy, steaming loaf of bread.
A bottle of milk brought to the gate.
Head-lumps and wound-scabs,
hair parted on the side.
Not shorts, but trousers
with cut off legs.
Then a field of blue sea
where gulls graze fish.
A long, deserted beach –
I race my father.
Chocolate milk
in a plastic bottle.
A small trailer
and wilderness. Freedom.
My thoughts,
deserted islands.
Some other planet
that rolled away beyond return.
