Best Poem of VOLHA HAPEYEVA

[hard to be a road]

hard to be a road
especially at the painted zebra
crossing
there
the hOriZOntal
and
the VErticAl
rush together people and cars
animals sometimes
dogs and pigeons
and bicycles - new ones and the ones inherited from those born in the 1930's

as a child
I often confused the horizontal with the vertical
and each time I uttered those words,
I imagined a horizon

the horizon, such a long narrow line
in the distance
behind which just now just now the sea
is about to appear
as I, the road,
disappear

Read the full of [hard to be a road]
