Luxury – light asymmetries of summer / lusso – asimmetrie sottili d’estate / Fast – asimetrii subţirii de vară

Trilingual text


I woke up at day break, night still in my head
the day, between my legs
the moments don’t fit me
for how big I’d like to seem

I woke up with a live scream
the scream of a premature birth
a dark mirror strips the
happiness from my voice

I am running naked inside of myself
like a free goat kid grazing on lime
I am searching, searching for something else
but the goat’s dry tit and again

I woke up in a different century
dropped like a worthless weight
and nothing drives me crazy
like the world living without luxury


mi sono svegliato con la notte in testa
e il giorno tra le gambe
momenti non mi si adattano
per quanto grande vorrei sembrare

mi sono svegliato ad ululare in diretta
parto prematuro
e il tono giocoso
mi abbandonai nello specchio grigio

corro nudo attraverso me, come
un capretto libero pascolando calce
cerco, cerco qualsiasi altra cosa che
le tette di capra di nuovo sterile

mi sono svegliato in un’altra epoca
lanciato come una zavorra
e nulla mi dispera
che le persone che vivono senza lusso


m-am trezit cu noaptea-n cap
şi cu ziua-ntre picioare
clipele nu mă încap
decât drag mi-e să par mare

m-am trezit cu urlet viu
de naştere prematură
şi de tonul bucuriu
mă dezbară oglindă sură

gol alerg prin mine ca
un ied slobod păscând var
caut, caut altceva
decât ţâţa caprei stearpă iar

m-am trezit în altă eră
aruncat ca un balast
şi nimic nu mă disperă
decât lumea ce trăieşte fără fast

    It’s like a screaming of someone looking for something lost inside. It’s the soul is crying from deep within…

  3. Reblogged this on My Five Romances and commented:
    Valeriu DG Barbu is a Romanian writer who lives in Italy. In his blog, which has a huge fo llowing, he often posts his poetry in trilingual text – English, Italian and Romanian. But he also has translation buttons that you can click on for Spanish, German and French. So anyone who wants to learn more of these languages and see the translations side by side should really follow his blog.
