On the Aran Island



Starodavna osamljenost ruševin

in moje bose noge na razbeljenih

kamnih otoka Zažirajo se v kožo

stopal kot kozorogovi kremplji

v skalovje naših višav A vendar je

drugače Slišim piščali ki jih ni videti

Zvoki se spuščajo nizdol po meni

pod obleko me obliznejo in

zagomazdijo do prstov nog

Pobočje tukaj ne more obroditi jabolk

Oklenem se osiromašenega drevesa

veter zašumi in kliče ladjo z obale

Sedem na ostanek vodnjaka

in prisluhnem njegovim pripovedim
