Röhrig Géza: ili

Portre of Röhrig Géza

ili (Hungarian)

lemész a nappal
megfordulsz vele
kigyúl a hajnal
oda se nézel
így lesz és így volt
napjaid alá
az éj fűz indigót
pedig voltál erős
erős mint a damil
belül oly tiszta
mint egy mocskos radír
de most hogy lopsz
bár testi bajod nincsen
megfulladsz mégis
mint hal a forralt vízben

ili (English)

you set with the sun
then you turn with it
dawn’s paternoster
is suddenly lit
you don’t even look
it will and used to be
your days are by the night
carbon-paper copied
you were so strong though
strong as a fishing line
inside you were so clean
as soiled erasers are
but now that you steal
though no body-harms to spot
you still sink and drown
like fish in a boiling pot
