The House Drowned

by Uroš Prah


The House Drowned

The cellar was not under the house.

And the sky not on top of it.

Water lapped at the edges.

It floated.

Everything was across.

It would almost be better to be without.

Or at least to grasp at walls.

Or at least to slide through the window.

Not to sleep.

HIŠA JE UTOPILA

Kleti ni bilo pod hišo.

In neba ne na njej.

Voda je oblivala robove.

Drsela je.

Vse je bilo počez.

Bilo bi skoraj bolje biti brez.

Ali se vsaj prijeti za stene.

Ali vsaj zdrkniti skozi okno.

Ne pa spati.
