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 HAIRDRESSER WHO DROWNED HERSELF: /
FRIZERKA KOJA SE UTOPILA:

All those who nowadays want their hairdo
got their own inborn hair
from the pile in auschwitz

I have touched it too many times, my fingers
have only learned to write death:

alarm clock button was a death,
toaster button was a death,
all the buttons in the sea of buttons –

and then at seven in the morning
the sea came
and I extended my hands
and the world quickly and for good
stiffened from fear
