Words of advice of the young orpheous

Words of advice of the young orpheous

The new is to be said, the juice to be squeezed
out of the words, the essence, the sound, sharpness,
meaning to be identified, the background of Orpheus'
flute to be interpreted. Eurydice contemplates

a new love, undying one, shining like
a ray of the sun. The delicate cornice of the glass
breaks and the wine spills the purple on
the table-cloth: it makes the map of love,

the crumbling geographical map. Each glance
easily disrupts whatever love is called
for it is vulnerable, very much so. The purple
spreads the harsh scent which makes

all senses vibrate. The proof of existence
unfolds like hanks; every minute
a thread may break, ties may
tangle. Does she ever tremble,

she who unfolds hanks, the tones of life,
by the sound made by a tight string,
by the beauty scattering about like petals
of roses we will identify the forthcoming end. At

the turn of the seasons of the year, do not look
back, the young Orpheus suggests. He did not learn
that amazing Eurydice, beneath the limpid
veil, loved the other one. The flute mourns





Шака мрака

Мастило је горко / ink is bitter

Књига промена

У дом за старе стигао је комунизам

Писма осамљеника

Глумци одлазе, сире

Бенгалска ватра глуме

Смрт је ловац самотан

Мачје, мишје и друге

Мирна кућа

Мефистов вез

С љубечитим штовањем

Вечерња благост

Тамни вилајет


Кад те заболи душа

Мали знаци неверства

Човек против себе

Хелена спава с мишицом под главом

Књига постања
