Ice Geometry – traducere în limba engleză de Adriana Bulz

Today I met an ex-highschool mate
She has grown fat, her hair was died red
I was gliding on the snow, watching her,
I realized how extremely lonely I was
my hair was black and my red-hot coat was
all that was left of me
everything else about me was alone
we spoke, with mechanichal gestures
and I wandered away randomly
it was the very area where you would come
sometimes for renting an illusion
The passers-by would jaywalk,
no one abided by the ice geometry,
no one had heard of anyone and
all of a sudden
I felt exetremely lonely
I even cried out on the inside,
you kept looking at cathedrals
and nobody, no one, had ever heard of me
except for my ex school mate
but meanwhile she had left.

Geometria gheţii

M-am întâlnit astăzi cu o fostă colegă de liceu
S-a îngrăşat, avea părul vopsit în roşu
Eu alunecam pe zăpadă, privind la ea,
mi-am dat seama că sunt extrem de singură
eu aveam părul negru şi doar haina extrem de roşie
mai rămăsese din mine
în rest, eram singură
am vorbit, cu gesturi mecanice
m-am îndepărtat, întâmplător
era chiar în zona în care mai veneai şi tu
din când în când ca să închiriezi iluzii
Trecătorii treceau pe roşu,
nimeni nu respecta geometria gheţii,
nimeni nu mai auzise de nimeni şi
dintr-o dată
mi s-a părut că sunt extrem de singură,
chiar am strigat în gândul meu,
tu te uitai la catedrale
şi nimeni, nimeni, nu mai auzise de mine
în afară de fosta colegă de liceu
dar ea între timp plecase.
