These People Seem To Be Drunk - Poem by ion untaru

hence the up-n port
no spring
grass and sponges
these people seem to be drunk
close and open
a suitcase with carbide
and when the inspector comes
carefully in slow motion
strike a match
and everything is a blast...


romanian version:


Unul aprinde chibritul(PH)

De aici ş i până -n port
nici un resort
iarbă ş i bureţ i
oamenii ă ş tia parcă sunt beţ i
închid ş i deschid
o valiză cu carbid
ş i când vine controlorul
parcă se miş că cu încetinitorul
unul aprinde chibritul
ş i toţ i îş i iau zborul...
