Slavko Janevski Poems
There the hungry wolf with his teeth has ripped out the hot entrails.
Let's go and dance a little, Death, you and me. He'll dig a well,
This race, this wonderful race! Here it kisses the hangman
Looking For An Answer
It left his skin on a stone and turned into stone. A viper. It grunted from rifle shots
Breakfast With Death
He doesn't come the way you thought from rose-coloured glaciers with a dead stag in his arms.

There the hungry wolf
with his teeth
has ripped out the hot entrails.
There the fugitive convict
stone by stone
has dug his grave.
There the naked dead
on a table of their bones
have chopped up the moon.
There the rutting stags,
their antlers entangled,
have turned into skeletons.
There on hard arid ground
sorcerers have woven
a wedding feast banner from their veins.
The groom is the wind,
the bride is the mist.
Amazingly in their cradle
(a handful of earth and hope)
a nameless flower opens. ...
