Poetry

Another Sky

Translated from Norwegian

An asphalt sky: your memory
Your earth is only a body

Time is a poem approaching
Time is a poem withering
Time is a poem dying
& time is a wailing wall
for poems and dreams

Such is exile
Your bottlenecked bottleneck
The wounded Fatherland's open sores
moaning within you

An asphalt sky: your memory
Your earth is only a body

English

Time is a poem approaching

& time is a wailing wall
for poems and dreams

Such is exile
Your bottlenecked bottleneck
The wounded Fatherland's open sores
moaning within you

An asphalt sky: your memory
Your earth is only a body
