SONNET 5 - Poem by Dumitru Crudu

I set some water to boil
didn't have anything to put in it
I was all alone in the house
the water slowly evaporating

five-bit coins had gone out of circulation
they used to be really nice those coins
the water was still boiling
outside raindrops were falling

I wanted to get up and go out
it was growing dark outside
I sat on three-legged stools
the water evaporating beside me

I lay down to sleep night had fallen
the water still boiling now unheard
