Compulsory Happiness

Translated from Belarusian by Jim McGarrah


/6
p. 1
Volja Gapeeva

compulsory happiness
for many long months
there where the wind knocks at the breast
threaded through the needle eye
when you are a tree
so inconspicuous

_______________________________________________________________________

compulsory happiness

compulsory happiness was handed out yesterday
on some unknown Strasse.
someone came up to me and said
you have such irregular eyes, please,
take a bit for yourself.
I brought it home and hid it
into the cupboard without reading
the instructions.
and then it turned out
one had to live with it.
