The Afternoon Self-deprecation

by Asja Bakić


The Afternoon Self-deprecation

The flies fly

their emblematic flight

around the chandelier

because nobody

took a shit in the middle of the room

I’m waiting for them to land

on me

Popodnevna samoironija

Muhe lete

Svoj simbolički let

Oko lustera

Kako se niko

Nije posrao na sredini sobe

Očekujem da slete

Na mene
