WALKING TOWARDS NOWHERE


traps

I walk in a park
trees
fountains
flower-clad pavilions
alleys converging towards a central
circle that seems to capture
remains of a stream

from and towards everywhere
I see
the sea of alleys gathered
in a fragile spider web.

to move ahead
I dive into the circle

in winding motion
a patch of water
comes closer and closer
it shakes as if frightened
then
disappears

the next step is
diving into a miracle

I am lifted
by a strong stream
the spider web gets dissolved
its place taken by an end to suffering that tries
to make its way behind my eyes
protected solely by pieces
of shattered clouds of hope

footsteps
open doors
that were shut way too soon
the forgotten day
when all these signs
were created

My late afternoon deambulation
burns
slowly and softly
trying to ritualize
absence…

din volumul Traps / Capcane, Corina Victoria Sein, traducere în limba engleză de Mihai Mihuţ, ilustraţii de Marius Fechete, 2015
