Moss (Mchy) – Eliza Segiet / Translated by Artur Komoter

Galaktika Poetike "ATUNIS"

Poem by Eliza Segiet
 
 
Moss
 
At dawn she visited a neighbour
– the one on the second floor,
and she only sighed:
not just yet, I don’t want to, I have to…
She did not finish.
 
On the sinuous, unstable
—like life—stairs
they went together
to where the earth
can give birth
– only to moss.
 
 
Mchy
 
Świtem odwiedziła sąsiadkę
– tę z drugiego piętra,
a ona tylko westchnęła:
jeszcze nie teraz, nie chcę, muszę…
Nie dokończyła.
 
Po krętych, niestabilnych
– jak życie – schodach
poszły razem,
tam gdzie ziemia,
potrafi rodzić
– tylko mchy.
