Haugová, Mila: Ecrive (Ecrive in English)

Portre of Haugová, Mila

Ecrive (Slovak)

„Ich weiss, wo du meinen Arm berührt hast." 
(L. Wittgenstein) 

... nechať všetko za-
tajené v slove; arogantné svetlo
temnoty; hudba hlbokých samohlások;
incest zvukov; hmatate
ľne ne-
ľné slová; vôňa pohlavia
jazyka; gestá dotýkavých rúk;
ť (len moja?)
kráčam v tebe ako Egyp
jednu ruku v tebe, druhú okolo
teba, tu, teraz (vo vete, ktorú nám
určil Boh), milujeme sa bez jediného slova.


Ecrive (English)

"Ich weiss, wo du meinen Arm berührt hast.”
(L. Wittgenstein)

...leave everything noc-
cealed in a word; arrogant light of
darkness; music of sonorous vowels;
incest of sounds; palpably im-
palpable words; smell of tongue's
sex; gestures of hands touching;
warmth (mine only?)
I step towards to you like an Egyptian woman;
one hand inside you, the other one round
you, here, now (in a sentence which God
commanded us), we make love without a single word.
