Kādā mājoklī, pamestā ūķī...

По стенам опустевшего дома...

Kādā mājoklī, pamestā ūķī
Šaudās saltas un satrauktas ēnas.
Tur lej asaras nespēkā rūķi
Rastā mitekļa klusumā rēnā.

Skrien pa bufetēm, galdiem un sienām,
Katrs varētu redzēt tos kaktos –
Tur bez glāsmainas gaismas un vienus,
Tumsas ielenktus sērīgā naktī.

Viņu ķermeņi slimīgie, vājie
Ilgās, gurdumā drebinās, knosās
Kopš tā laika, kad pamestā mājā
Vairs nav bijušā saimnieka rosas.

Tumšo istabu smacīgā gaisā
Katru brīdi jo sērīgāk, klusāk,
Viņi saimnieku nožņaudza baisi
Guļamistabā gotiskā, dusā.

Projām aiznesa piemiņas sveces
Un jau aprima bēresta gaudas,
Tik vien palika atmiņas vecās,
Vēl dažs pārmetums, nožēla, raudas.

Kādā mājoklī, pamestā ūķī
Šaudās saltas un satrauktas ēnas.
Tur lej asaras nespēkā rūķi
Rastā mitekļa klusumā rēnā.

Beyond the Grave

There's a secret cavern, deep in the earth, / filled with stately tombs, / Lucifer's fiery dreams. / Beautiful whores slink between them. / / Whether you die proud or ashamed / a gloomy old man, a bony old man, / a boring, sluggish workman - Death - / will come and stare at you impe...

The Giraffe

You are sadder, today: I can see. / And your arms, wrapped around your knees, are thinner. / But listen: far far away, near Lake Chad, / a delicate giraffe grazes up and down. / / He is blessed with sinuous beauty and with happiness, / and his hide is stamped with a magic design / tha...

He told us no lies, that harsh spirit with sad / eyes and the morning star's name: / he said, "Don't worry about Heaven's vengeance; / eat of the fruit and be like gods." / / Young men can go anywhere, now, / old men can do anything, / and girls have / amber fruit and unic...
