Pesmet cu mac

Între ora două şi trei după amiaza
fac semne îngerilor să vină la mine.
În spitale şi închisori
gustul este acelaşi –
linguriţa de bromură
până la porţia de seară.
Cineva îmi arată alt adevăr
şi face un semn de eliberare
pentru mine şi el
şi atunci, ca şi cum nimic nu s-ar fi întâmplat
simt gustul unui pesmet cu mac.

Bread with poppy seeds

Between two and three o’clock in the afternoon
I wave to the angels to come to me.
In hospitals and prisons
the taste is the same –
the teaspoonful of bromide
till the evening portion.
Somebody shows me another truth
and waves his hand
for my and his absolution
and then, as if nothing had happened
I feel the taste
of bread with poppy seeds.

Pain sec au pavot

Entre deux et trois heures de l’après-midi
je fais signe aux anges pour qu’ils viennent chez moi.
Dans les hôpitaux et les prisons,
le goût est le même –
une petite cuillère de bromure
jusqu’à la ration du soir.
Quelqu’un me montre une autre vérité
et fait un signe de libération
pour moi et pour lui
alors, comme si de rien n’était
je sens le goût d’un pain sec au pavot.
