Na hostine

На пиру

Raz princa Diega spánok premohol,
spadla mu hlava na prestretý stôl,
predtým však zhodil pohár zo zlata,
gombíky rozopol si na šatách.

Odrazu hľadí do priezračných vĺn
a na vlnách sa vznáša sklený čln,
v ktorom už dávno je mu s nevestou
súdené plávať cestou-necestou.

Široký priestor, žiadne hranice,
dva kruhy blčia ako zrenice,
no v dyme už-už vidno ostrovy,
kde tajné slová ktosi vysloví –
vencami z bielych ruží, čečiny
pán Ježiš Kristus hlavy venčí im.

Medzitým naňho vrhne panovník
pohľad. Tá slávnosť je len podlý trik:
na hruď mu bezočiví pajáci
krvavé kvety kladú v paláci
a nevesta tam túžbu ukája,
bozkajúc necudného lokaja.

Don Juan (Rhyming)

This dream of mine is arrogant and plain: / To grasp the oar, to jump into the races, / To swindle sluggish time by switching faces, / Caressing lips that never are the same; / / And in old age adopt Christ's legacy: / Debase my head and sprinkle it with ashes / And hold salvation's b...
