Kontrola / Control

July 30, 2014

Kontrola
Ptice drmusavo zelene boje.
što ubijaju silu teže,
uplašile su se i pobegle.
Rođeni katapulter suza
koji priča kao kineska majica
skakuće po polju mokrih kišobrana
nadajući se da neće pokvasiti cipele.
Pakuje mesečinu u plastične kese,
nadajući se da nikad neće
uništiti negative u sopstvenoj glavi
ili ih, nedajbože, izložiti suncu.
Ne ide to tako.
Nije to tako.
Zaista nije tako,
ni blizu […]

Utopila sam se igrajući / Drowned Dancing

December 27, 2013

Utopila sam se igrajući
Sanjala sam da sam se udavila
u Lepom plavom
bar sam se udavila plešući
bar sam konačno osetila
kako to izgleda plutati,
bar sam se udavila plešući.
Ostajem bez vazduha,
jer tako se ljudi dave.
Postajem plava u licu,
jer tako se ljudi dave
i nema drugog načina.
Onda sam se prenula iz sna
i vratila svojoj stvarnosti:
zaključani u […]

2. Did you keep your New Year’s Resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don’t think I had any. In 2014. […]

Duša viška / A Spare Soul

November 29, 2013

Duša viška
Ona kaže da naučiš da plačeš sama,
navikneš se da praznina u tebe zija,
ona kaže da treba da se povučem,
kako se u jadima ne bih udavila.
I naučiš da je sve tvoja krivica
i da nemaš prava, kako god bilo.
Ništa nije, al’ sve je protiv tebe.
Uradila si nešto pre mnogo godina
i evo […]

Moj izgubljeni leptir / My Lost Butterfly

November 28, 2013

This is a poetry experiment written a couple of days ago. It looks like it’s about an estranged lover, but when the lines in brackets are removed, the poem turns out to be about something completely different that can be described as an often problematic butterfly found with every […]
