Plea of a Second


*English version included.

Molba jedne sekunde

Stavi me u zupchanik.
Da, bash tu!
Uglavi me,
Nateraj me da otkucavam,
da brojim,
da techem,
da idem dalje.

Zakucaj me na zid.
Da, bash na taj tu!
Da kroz mrtvu prirodu dnevne sobe
zatreperi moj iskidani glas.
Oslikaj me,
kao nepozvanog gosta,
stoichnog i nevernog,
koji se gosti uspomenama.

Navi me.
Da, bash me zavrti i okreni!
Na minut do praskozorja,
minut do lenjog podneva,
minut do ushunjavanja noci
kroz prozore.
Okreni mi ruke ka zvezdama,
zauzdaj me,
zavezi me
za sharenu vrteshku snova.

Onda, u toj tishini;
Da, bash toj, sto seje strah po trepavicama!
Ti i ja,
izgubljeni jedno u drugome,
ljubicemo se,
pijani od saznanja
da smo svojevoljno zivi.


Plea of a Second

Put me inside a cogwheel.
Yes, right there!
Squeeze me in,
screw me in.
Make me tick away,
make me count,
to flow.
to move on.

Nail me up to the wall.
Yes, that one there!
So through the still life of the living room
my shattered voice flickers.
Paint me into
an uninvited guest,
stoic and unfaithful
who feasts on memories.

Wind me up.
Yes, really spin me and turn me!
To minute to daybreak,
minute to a lazy afternoon,
minute ’till night’s sneaking in
through the windows.
Turn my hands towards the stars,
tame me,
tie me
to the colorful marry-go-round of dreams.

Then, in that silence;
Yes, that one, that sows fear upon the eyelashes!
You and me,
lost inside one another,
will kiss,
drunk from the knowledge
that we are willingly alive.
