Šta sam danas jela

Nisam doručkovala.
Želela sam da budem gladna.
Želela sam da mrzim ceo svet jer sam gladna.
Želela sam da mislim da više neću jesti.

Jadna ja.
Tako gladna.
Jadna, jadna ja.
Umreću od gladi.

Kuvala sam rižoto ala milaneze za ručak,
sa mnogo žutog šafrana u njemu,
znojila sam se po najgoroj letnjoj vrućini,
krčkao se, tako svetao, na mojoj ringli,
onda sam morala da ga sipam u prelepu činiju,
namastim ga pakovanjem najboljeg maslaca
i pokrijem ga pravim parmezanom.

Posle pola sata, bio je tvrd i težak za stomak.
Muka mi je.

Jela sam mramornog kolača za večeru,
porciju četvorostruko veću od propisane,
jela sam ga pravo iz kutije,
nisam mogla da sačekam da je otvorim,
nisam imala vremena da ga serviram kako treba,
isprljala sam ruke sve do laktova,
čak sam zagrizla i malo plastične ambalaže.

Sledećeg dana bio je potpuno suv i krunio se.
Muka mi je.

What I Ate Today

I did not have my breakfast.
I wanted to be hungry.
I wanted to hate the world for being hungry.
I wanted to think I could not eat again.

Poor me,
So hungry.
Poor, poor me,
I am going to starve.

I was cooking risotto alla milanese for lunch,
With a lot of yellow saffron in it,
Sweating over it in the worst midsummer heat,
It was burning bright on my stove,
Just had to put it in a really pretty bowl,
Grease it with a lot of premium butter
And cover it up in original parmesan cheese.

After half an hour, it was hard and heavy.
I'm sick.

I ate a marmorkuchen for supper,
Four times the regular portion,
I was eating it straight from the box,
I just could not wait to open it
I had no time to actually serve it,
I had to dirty up my hands up to my elbows,
I even bit some of the plastic bag with my teeth.

The next day, it was all dry and flakey.
I'm sick.

    Nice rhythm! I guess in Serbian it is even better.
