Mehanika peluda – Selected poems from Martina Vidaić

A WOMAN STOWAWAY
THE MAID WHO EARNED HER DEGREE IN THOMAS HOBBES
A MALE FASHION MODEL WITH A CANCER
A FEMALE VISITOR OF A SECOND-HAND SHOP
A HAIRDRESSER WHO DROWNED HERSELF
A HOMELESS BEFORE THE RESTAURANT WINDOW
A FEMALE MARATHON RUNNER
A WOMAN WHO FLIES FOR THE FIRST TIME
A WORKWOMAN OF WORN OUT KNEES
A BEGGAR RESEMBLING A BLACK CAT


A MALE FASHION MODEL WITH A CANCER: / MANEKEN S RAKOM:

It takes a doubt to get an illness
As in the equation, I stared
into the dark crescents of the eyebags,
and one morning they fell onto the lungs

The sun went out and the X-ray Shadow
was evident I said:

o, I have always loved black holes
which arise when a star forgets its glow,
let’s say, janis joplin
every now and then extinguishes a fag end
on so-called healthy alveoli

This world has deserved every cough,
a world in which nobody is drugged sincerely,
a world in which there is too little swearing,
and a little little breathing seems to be enough
a general thought
that maybe it’s only about me,
that others can understand what this is about

Sister, I need more of October,
a more evident poverty, a summer to end
as hair gone during chemotherapy,
never to return
as long as death does not give up
