shakes

No wind. Just episodic shakes 

of air released by a robin. 

Right beside me. We left a whole week 

of walking between blocks of flats behind us.


Up and down the street several times a day. 

People still have their own gardens. 

They take good care of them if they’re not too busy. 

Vegetable plots full of spinach


that nobody cooks.

Translated by Ana Pepelnik

sunki

Nobenega vetra. Samo občasni 

sunki zraka ki jih je sprožila taščica.

Čisto zraven mene. Za nami 

je cel teden sprehajanja med bloki.


Dol in gor po ulici parkrat na dan.

Še vedno ima vsak svoj vrt. 

Pridno ga obdelujejo če niso v stiski.

Grede polne špinače ki je 


nobeden ne skuha.
