The dream of the dolphin

Translated by: Janka Arsovska

p. 1

Bright spot
Accidental talks
Don't forget
Last weakness
Waiting for the wind
The dream of the dolphin
Word
Calmly

Bright spot
on your forehead

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

                (1994)
