Miroslav Antic – Kad bi jastuci progovorili

Kad bi jastuci progovorili
o tome šta neko sanja i krije,
kada bi zaista progovorili
o tome šta neko radi kradom,
o devojčici,
na primer,
što oponaša starije
i nešto spletkari… spletkari,
sva izbrljana pomadom,
ili o dečaku
što se tupim žiletom brije
– kao: kuburi čovek s bradom,
i sve ostalo kad bi progovorili
o tebi
i o meni,
bilo bi da se plače i smeje
i da se pocrveni.

Srećom: jastuci ništa ne govore.
Čuvaju milion tajni u mekoj belini perja.
Oni su kao lađe,
velike bele lađe,
što plove u nemoguće,
u snove,
u bezmerja.
Uveče te odvedu.
U zoru te dovedu,
I zna se: sve je u redu…

English Translation

If Pillows Could Talk

If pillows could talk
about what someone dreams and hides,
if they would really talk
about what someone secretly does
about a girl,
for example,
that mimics grownups
and gossips… gossips,
all smudged with makeup,
or about a boy
who shaves with a dull razor blade
– supposedly: the man has beard troubles,
And if they’d talk about everything else
about you,
and about me,
there would be something to cry and laugh about
and to make us blush.

Luckily: pillows don’t say a word.
They keep a million secrets in the soft whiteness of feathers.
They are like boats,
big white boats,
that sail into the impossibility,
into dreams
into the immensity.
They take you away at night.
bring you back at dawn.
And it goes without saying: everything is fine…
