Kako se ne udaviti / How Not To Drown

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2017. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

Kako se ne udaviti?

Ispuzala sam a iz podruma,
pravo u vodu,
plivala pored reke, po prljavštini,
tako je bezbednije.

Ležala sam na pločnicima,
dok ih je trava osvajala,
ne ulazim ni u jednu zgradu,
tako je bolje.

Kako se ne udaviti?
Kako se ne udaviti?
Ako plivam,
udaviću se.
Ako se vratim,
udaviću se.
Ako odem,
udaviću se.
Ako spavam,
udaviću se.

Šta god ovde radiš, povredićeš se.
Udahneš, povrediš se.
Izdahneš, povrediš se.

Plivala sam pored reke, po prljavštini,
pravo ka podrumu,
upuzala sam nazad...
...i šta sad?


How Not To Drown?

I crawled from the basement,
Straight into water.
Swum beside the river in dirt.
It's safer that way.

I lied on the pavement,
Grass pushing through,
Nothing entering any buildings,
It's better that way.

How not to drown?
How not to drown?
If I swim,
I drown.
If I go back,
I drown.
If I leave,
I drown.
If I sleep,
I drown.

Whatever you do here, you get hurt.
You breathe in, you get hurt.
You breathe out, you get hurt.
