Patka

Patka

Gega se prašinom
U kojoj se ne smeju ribe
U bokovima svojim nosi
Nemir voda

Nespretna
Gega se polako
Trska koja misli
Ionako će je stići

Nikada
Nikada neće umeti
Da hoda
Kao što je umela
Ogledala da ore


 

The Duck

She is plodding through the dust
In which no fish are laughing
In her hips she is carrying
The unrest of waters

Clumsy
She is plodding slowly
A reed thinking
She'll be caught up with anyway

Never
She'll never be able
To walk
Like she could
Plow the mirrors
