The dream of the dolphin

/, Blesok no. 36/The dream of the dolphin

The dream of the dolphin

Bright spot on your forehead
Accidental talks
Don"t forget you still have a soul
Last weakness
Waiting for the wind
The dream of the dolphin
Word – metamorphosis –
Calmly I write these verses

Translated by: Janka Arsovska

sleep dream fades the pain
the moment is a lasting nightmare
slowly killing the thought
painfully forgetting the forgotten

the day is a big temptation

said the old newspaper salesman

the streets are endless
said the old street cleaner

our souls are empty boxes

said the old mailman

I have nothing to redeem my soul
said the old street beggar

sleep don’t look don’t look at yourself
ugliness eats up beauty kills
no mirror is an icon
nothing is new and unique

no this is not a theatre
but repeated and inevitable punishment
invisible trap
before the fence of the paradise

said the old a little drunk artist

it is time to look for
our new habitat

said the old forgotten words

sleep and that what will still to come
long time ago has passed
when you are awake also fades
the bright spot on your forehead
