Eg – papegøyen frå eit lyst arkipelag,
bur nå i romkvadratet til ein trollkar.
Rundt meg er globusar, papir og kolbar,
og gamlinghosten, klokka sine slag.

La gå at når han manar, i eit jag
av stemmer, blikket stikk som kården stålkald,
blæs skrekk og mot opp vengefjøra solka,
mot skuggeugler går eg straks til slag...

La gå! Men knapt har cella til min særling
fått vitjing, ein som søker hell i kjærleik
og spel, ein ryggeslaus med gullsydd frakk, –

da ser eg skuta i ei bukt så herlig
i blikkstille og sol ... men fåfengt snakk
kan ikkje gløyme, løyndommen er uærlig.

The Streetcar That Lost Its Way

While walking down a strange street / I suddenly heard the cawing of crows, / Distant thunder, and the tones of a lute - / Here came a streetcar flying past. / / How I managed to leap to its step / Is beyond me - even in the bright / Daylight it spewed behind itself / In the atmosph...


So this is all of life! Whirling, singing. / Oceans, metropolises, deserts, / A desultory reflection / Of what is lost forever. / / A flame rages, trumpets trumpet, / And chesnut-colored horses race, / Then the agitating lips / Of happiness, it seems repeat. / / And sorrow and ...

A Baby Elephant

Right now my love for you is a baby elephant / Born in Berlin or in Paris, / And treading with its cushioned feet / Around the zoo director's house. / / Do not offer it French pastries, / Do not offer it cabbage heads, / It can eat only sections of tangerines, / Or lumps of sugar an...


In the old days, when God cast down / His gaze upon the just created earth, / Words stopped the sun, / Words tore down whole towns. / / The terror-striken stars / huddled round the moon / When words, like pink flaming tongues / Floated down through air. / / The lower levels of ...
