They said Let us go and ask him: Are you

The one who must come, or should we … The doubters!

I took the thing

I use to cut clay without knowing

Whether it has a name

(A metal  wire, handles at both ends)

And cut all their throats.

But of course we know,

Of course we’re certain!

© translated by Jernej Županič

Rekli so Pojdimo in ga vprašajmo: Si ti,

ki mora priti, ali naj drugega … Dvomljivci!

Vzela sem tisto reč,

s katero režem glino in ne vem,

ali je poimenovana

(kovinska žica, držali na konceh),

vsem prerezala vratove.

Saj vendar vemo,

saj smo ja prepričani!
