Röhrig Géza: rózsamama

Portre of Röhrig Géza

rózsamama (Hungarian)

rózsamama szöget vert át az almákon
‘vashiányos a víz azt mondják ez segít’
egy késdobálóval lépett föl kassán
imádtuk nézni megszámolni sebeit

kedvenc konyhásnénink volt
karcsi megkérdezte míg néztük sebeit
‘rózsamama miért vállalta a fellépést?’
‘vashiány’ szóltam én ‘azt mondják ez segít’

mammarosa (English)

mammarosa drove nails into apples
‘water lacks iron it is said to help’
on stage with a knife-thrower in kassa*
we just loved to see and count her stabs

our favourite cook ever
karcsi asked while we watched her stabs
‘mammarosa why did you go on stage?’
‘lack of iron’ i told ‘it is said to help’

*Formerly a Hungarian city, now the biggest city of Eastern Slovakia (Košice).
