Petri György: Hanging question (Fogas kérdés in English)

Portre of Petri György

Fogas kérdés (Hungarian)

Itt ülök az ágyon,
kilátok az előszobára,
látom a fogason
a télikabátomat, a kalapomat,
a sálamat.
Miért nem
a télikabátom, a kalapom,
a sálam
ül itt az ágyon,
s lógok
én a fogason?
S néznének ők engem?

Hanging question (English)

Here I'm sitting on the bed,
I can see all the way out to the doorway,
I can see
my winter coat, my hat,
my scarf on the hanger.
Why not
my winter coat, my hat
my scarf
sitting here on the bed,
and me hanging
on the hanger?
Would they watch me?
