PETER ANDREJ

… ČAROVNIK V SINJEM KLOBUKU

je izginil, izginil

čarovnik, ki je čaral zajčke

iz sinjega klobuka,

izginili zajčki,

ki so se dobrikali

lovcu in skakali pred cevjo

s svojo milino,

nas spravljali v jok

in v sprevod norosti.

Sled je frigidna.

Kdor ne razume žarka,

bo premog.

Izginil je …

A MAGICIAN IN THE BLUE HAT

he disappeared…

disappeared, the magician…

he, who puts a spell on the bunnies

from the blue hat

disappeared, the bunnies,

cute and soft,

jumping in front of

the hunter’s gun

with merciful eyes

leaving us in tears

and in the flow of our madness

the traces lead nowhere

the one who doesn’t follow the ray of light

shall become ashes

when passing by

he disappeared…

skoz zvočni zid

skoz zvočni zid

v srce sonca

misel leti stran od podob

v poku neslišnem tali se telo

popki marelice otrok v joku

skoz zvočni zid

žge hrepenenje

kipenje spomina magma besed

kriki groze v krikih slasti

vse v modrem plamenu gori

izpusti pozabi

duše ki tu so zato da služijo vdano enemu namenu

izpusti pozabi

podobe zrcala v zrcalu ki se izmikajo pravemu imenu

skoz zvočni zid

izginja val s peščene obale

izginja črta horizonta

pika v piki

luknja v sliki

pulzira oranžno

neznosna nedolžnost

through the sound wall

through the sound wall

into the heart of the sun

a thought is flying away from the images

in the soundless bang body melts

buds of the apricot tree a child crying

through the sound wall

the longing burns

the bubbling of memory magma of words

screams of horror in screams of passion

all is burning in a blue flame

let go forget

the souls who are here to faithfully serve only one purpose

let go forget

images of a mirror in a mirror evading the real name

through the sound wall

a wave from a sandy beach disappears

a line on the horizon disappears

a dot in a dot

a hole in a picture

pulsating in orange

unbearable innocence
