Ol’ Ant vs. Jim Morrison | Selfness estranges – People are strange

  



People are strange

People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down

When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange

(Jim Morrison)

  

Selfness estranges 

 

So don’t be a stranger who seeds dying blazes
denying his mirror when it seems odd.
You may be the changer who feeds prying daisies;
they’re, even unconscious, your runways to God.

Don’t be strange!
Insular worldviews derange.
Stretch the range
matching your mind with the change.
Don’t be strange!
Outrange!
Catch the change!

(Ol’ Ant)

„Dragən Ju:zɛlak, the guard of my bridges,
brings back lost colors from our vast tense.
Unbroken backpackers are grinding high ridges
while spines dream to digest an overripe sense:

- Reach My grange!
(Singular bleedings estrange.)
- No! Reach My grange!
(Insular breedings derange.)
- Please, reach My grange!
- No, reach My grange!
(Oh, My; how strange!)“

Hvala Vam, dragi Oleg ...

Veoma sam počastvovan Vašim osvrtom, ipak, sve zasluge pripadaju mom dragom uzoru Jimu Morrisonu. Moja malenkost je tu samo da prenese poruku dragog pesnika i buntovnika ... Neobično iskustvo za mene ... naći se u društvu dvojice poeta kao običan sanjar i poklonik andergraunda... zatečen kao stranac u svetu apsurda.

Srdačan pozdrav! Teško je odgovoriti na lepotu poezije običnim rečima... Hvala još jednom. Džim to svakako zaslužuje.
