Poème de Bonheur

 

 

 

Poème de Bonheur

Nous sommes posés sur le gâteau
comme des figurines de maries
Quand le couteau tranchera
essayons de rester sur la même tranche

Tr: Michel Eckhard Elial

 

 


 

 

 

 

The Mouth

 

 

The Mouth

The mouth is like a stable gate
kicked open by a horse - a word.
"Giddyap," I shout to love,
"Giddyap, giddyap".
And it tosses its mane
bearing on its back a pile of flame
it plundered from wayside bonfires.

Tr: Vivian Eden
