In Exile

by Asja Bakić


In Exile

I’ve lost some pennies in the snow

Twenty years ago,

a couple of coins

and I’m recollecting them now

 

But the cashier gives me a blank look

I can’t pay, I don’t have enough -

my memories here

are worthless

U egzilu

U snijegu sam izgubila sitniš

prije dvadeset godina

par kovanica

i sad ih pronalazim u sjećanju

 

Ali kasirka me blijedo gleda

ne mogu platiti, nemam dovoljno –

moje sjećanje ovdje

ne vrijedi ništa
