HERE WE ARE

by Tibor Hrs Pandur


HERE WE ARE

Everything’s cool

If you got cash

Deer eat from your hands

And from tables abandoned by the rich

In front of their gigaton yachts

Seagulls screeching

The sun’s coming

And everybody’s cumming

You can be here

And not be afraid

That you could be human and simultaneously pure as an animal

 

Note to self

 

Beauty is simple

You don’t need to wrap it in obscure

Pseudointellectual symbols

Look at the beauty of an ant

That comes onto your page by chance

And you have to flick it away if you want to continue

 

Electricity is not hermetic

Poetry is not masturbation into the ether

It’s a letter

To someone specific

To you

From "Internal Affairs"; Translated by Jernej Županič

TU SMO

Vse je kul
Če maš keš
Jeleni ti jejo iz rok
In z miz, ki so jih bogataši zapustili
Pred svojimi gigatonskimi jahtami
Galebi kričijo
Sonce prihaja
In vsem prihaja
Lahko si tu
Ne da bi se bal
Da si lahko človek in hkrati čist kot žival

Note to self

Lepota je preprosta
Ne rabiš je zavijat v obskurne
Kvazi intelektualne simbole
Glej lepoto mravlje
Ki ti pride na list slučajno
In jo moraš frcnit proč, če hočeš nadaljevat

Elektrika ni hermetična
Poezija ni masturbacija v eter
Je pismo
Točno nekomu
Tebi
