Budnica - vsak dan nova pesem

“Poezijo bi lahko definirali kot jasen izraz mešanih čustev.” - H. W. Auden

Še posebej v karanteni(ji) je treba skrbeti za zdravega duha. V tej temi zanj skrbimo s poezijo!

Memento mori
France Prešeren

Dolgost življenja našega je kratka.
Kaj znancov je zasula že lopata!
Odprte noč in dan so gróba vrata;
al dneva ne pove nobena prat’ka.

Pred smrtjo ne obvarje koža gladka,
od nje nas ne odkup’jo kupi zláta,
ne odpodí od nas življenja tata
veselja hrup, ne pevcov pesem sladka.

Naj zmisli, kdor slepoto ljubi svéta,
in od veselja do veselja leta,
de smrtna žetev vsak dan bolj dozóri.

Znabiti, de kdor zdéj vesel prepeva,
v mrtvaškem prti nam pred koncam dneva
molčé trobental bo: “Memento móri!”

Imagining defeat
David Berman

She woke me up at dawn,
her suitcase like a little brown dog at her heels.

I sat up and looked out the window
at the snow falling in the stand of blackjack trees.

A bus ticket in her hand.

Then she brought something black up to her mouth,
a plum I thought, but it was an asthma inhaler.

I reached under the bed for my menthols
and she asked if I ever thought of cancer.

Yes, I said, but always as a tree way up ahead
in the distance where it doesn’t matter

And I suppose a dead soul must look back at that tree,
so far behind his wagon where it also doesn’t matter.

except as a memory of rest or water.

Though to believe any of that, I thought,
you have to accept the premise

that she woke me up at all.

Ups, malo sem pozabil na to …

KANYE WEST IS NOT PICASSO
Leonard Cohen

Kanye West is not Picasso
I am Picasso
Kanye West is not Edison
I am Edison
I am Tesla
Jay-Z is not the Dylan of anything
I am the Dylan of anything
I am the Kanye West of Kanye West
The Kanye West
Of the great bogus shift of bullshit culture
From one boutique to another
I am Tesla
I am his coil
The coil that made electricity soft as a bed
I am the Kanye West Kanye West thinks he is
When he shoves your ass off the stage
I am the real Kanye West
I don’t get around much anymore
I never have
I only come alive after a war
And we have not had it yet
