The Modesty of Minorities

by Uroš Prah


The Modesty of Minorities

They ask very little space for themselves.

They counter the noise of verbosity

with a truer noise –

the terrible density of a calm word.

That buzzes.

Skromnost manjšin

Zase zahtevajo zelo malo prostora.

Hrupu mnogobesedja zoperstavijo

resničnejši hrup —

grozno gostoto umirjene besede.

Ki brenči.
