OUR HANDS IN THE WATER: Poetry, by Yves Bonnefoy

OUR HANDS IN THE WATER We fidget this water. In it, our hands are sought, sometimes touching, broken shapes. Further down, is a current, is something invisible, other trees, other lights, other dreams. And look, are also other colors. Refraction transfigures the red. It was a summer day? No, it is the time that will change the sky, and into …

ROTATIONS: Poetry, by Lorenzo Mari

ROTATIONS The rotation of a star, I understand with the heart. There are red hot stones on the night of the body. These are the names that trace their orbit of oblivion, their ellipse years and forgetfulness. (Lorenzo Mari)

LULLABY: Poetry of Kathleen Jamie

LULLABY My sweet little man, wild cherry and mountain ash, if you knew to stay on his feet would light your steps, on granite and sand, but you still do not know to stay upright, and my arm will have to tighten.

ADDRESS OF DARKENED: Poetry of Michael Krüger

ADDRESS OF DARKENED They are darkened. All attempts to soothe me have failed. Why do not you laugh, I asked people. What, I say, I will not negotiate with hope.

WANT, REPORTS, LANGUAGE: Poetry by Uwe Kolbe

WANT, REPORTS, LANGUAGE Urgent desire, said the thirteenth fairy, alighting on my head. Blue radiant! Rang out from the slopes of Pompei, I was looking at, chased, but safe.
