Search atoms on the edge of the world



Soil metaphysics

where you were born

it is determined by the degree

minute and second

latitude and longitude

 

You were born there

that's where you learned to speak

began to breathe

eat from that soil

drink water from that source

to bask in the sun

on that ground

 

search atoms

on the edge of the world

 

soil metaphysics

 

 ***

 

A clamp called man

 

Metaphysics of the soil

The place you were born

is determined by the degree

minute and second

latitude and longitude

you were born there

that's where you learned to speak

began to breathe

eat from that soil

drink water from that source

to bask in the sun

on that ground

search atoms

on the edge of the world

 

metaphysics of the soil.

A bond called man

 

Reading Ethan Allen

 

In the animal body revived

Natural heritage

The nature of evil

The nature of good

No preference

Arbitrarily edits

Selfish

Old

Mixture

Of all the beings

Of our age

In space,

In

Complete

Scale of

Beings

 

A bond called man

eventually miss

not be better

than he would be

that he never existed

Black Africa

 

In broad daylight

Stopped

By a black

Rubber

Baton

Black man.

At a

Threshold

Heavy chains

Chained doors

By

White cop,

White uniforms,

White as walls

Churches for whites.

- I came

to sweep the church -

He said.

- Get in, the black sweeper.

White cop,

Threatening him:

- Throw as much as you like,

but if I just catch you,
to pray inside.

Atomi traženja na rubnici svijeta


metafizika tla
tamo gdje si rođen
određeno je stupnjem
minutom i sekundom
geografskom širinom i dužinom
tu si rođen
tu si naučio govoriti
počeo disati
jesti s toga tla
piti vodu s toga izvora
grijati se pod suncem
na tome tlu

atomi traženja
na rubnici svijeta
metafizike tla

Spona koja se nazva čovjek


Čitajući Ethana Allena

...

u životinjskom tijelu oživljen
prirodno baštini
prirodu zla
prirodu dobra
svejedno
proizvoljno uređuje
sebična
stara
smjesa
svih bića
našega uzrasta
u svemiru
u
upotpuni
skala
bića
spona koja se nazva čovjek
na kraju krajeva propustit
ne bit bolji
nego što bi bio
da uopće ni postojao nije.

Afrika


Crna Afrika,
u po bijela dana
zaustavljen
crnom,
gumenom,
batinom,
crnac,
pred
pragom
teškim lancima
okovana vrata,
od strane
bijeloga policajca,
bijele uniforme,
bijele kao zidovi
crkve za bijelce.
- Došao sam,
pomesti crkvu.
Reče.
- Uđi pometaču crni.
Bijeli policajac
prijeteći mu zbori:
- Meti koliko voliš,
al' uhvatim li te samo,

da se unutra moliš.
