75

this is a mouth of war. we’re hanging from hooks. not as artists, not as circus performers, not fantasy dolls.

 

                                               this is a war mouth. here is a war mouth. nowhere a butcher to unhook us.

 

only flies are getting stuck to the wet blood.

75

to so vojna usta. visiva s kavljev: ne kot umetnici, ne kot cirkusantki, ne fantazijski lutki.

 

                                               to so vojna usta. tukaj so vojna usta. nikjer mesarja, ki naju bi snel.

 

samo muhe se lepijo na vlažno kri.
