Haiku: Za Vani Odaslat I - Borivoj Bukva

[Other titles in English] [All other titles]

na podu leze
glumci i maske -
ruza na stolu
on the floor
actors and masks -
on the table a rose
nad krevetom
u rane jutarnje sate
stojim pijan
over my bed I stand
in early morning hours
jedan meni
i jedan tebi griz
one for me
and one for you
bite of an apple
bogomoljka na
prstu djevojke
prati me pogledom
a mantis
on a girl's finder, follows me
with its glance
jeza u noci
mocnici i zlocinci
liyu sladoled
a chill in the night
the powerful and the crooked
licking ice cream
u vodi trazim
nedirnutu ljepotu -
gol golcat
in water I look for
untouched beauty -
stark naked
moj krevet
i tvoj prijatelj -
hladna soba
my bed
and your friend -
cold room
crvene mrlje
u dvorcu od karata
prerezan prst
red stains
in the castle made of cards
the cut finger

kauboj jase
svemirac svemirom


a cowboy riding
along prairie
a spaceman across
