Leaning on its shadow

/, Blesok no. 60/Leaning on its shadow

Leaning on its shadow

* * * (There it is below, between two coasts)
The Preacher
Oh, Cavafy
Tohu va bohu 2
Two Silences
* * * (Just a while longer and I shall return home)
Nothing and Nobody
Everybody Is Alone
When You Are Far
* * * (In the space between two words)
He Went to Bed with the Word

Translated by: Elizabeta Bakovska

There it is below, between two coasts,
in the silence between two words,
the warm seed of its own language,
leaning on its shadow it waits for nothing and – nobody.
