"Clockwork Marshes”

Author: Tomasz Sokolowski

Translated by J. Szajkowska, P. Szajkowski

 

Trees

Words

Time is running out

You can't see any place to hide

And the books burnt up on the hill won't laugh anymore

 

Among sad trees

Between shadows and light

We climb up those stone-cold stairs

We climb higher, breathing the silence in

Among sad walls

Where only dampen rocks dwell in

We climb up those stone-cold stairs

Rejected even by the soil

 

The books that have surrounded me won't burn me anymore

The words that have surrounded me won't burn me anymore

Her hand so cold won't touch me anymore

The Moon is gone… she won't look anymore

 

Clockwork hands

Clockwork lips

In this forest close on my heels

I wish I could hide and fall asleep

 

Clockwork fingers

Legs

Eyes

I'm alone in this mess

Drowning… drowning!…

drowning… And no one cares
