FAMILY GARDEN

by Alen Brlek


FAMILY GARDEN

I shall carry you, o, roots,
even after a thousand ploughings,
fear not.
God is here, drupacious,
right behind the eyes.

Translated from the Croatian by Mirza Puric

OBITELJSKA BAŠTA

Nosit ću te korijenje

i poslije tisuću oranja,

ne boj se.

Bog je ovdje, orašast,

iza očiju.
