Mister Today, this pathetic creature, knew:
today it is you who eats from my soul
and from my barking heart.
The flame of my spirit is high and generous.
My genius is the light in the hub of the universe,
but my share in it is the contribution of vermin.
I am nothing and light is everything.
The green life of plants reaches
into the last corner of serene joy,
which is a small gift I give you.
I rest in peace in the gravest depths of absent silence.

Bratislava, 25th Oct. 1999
