Neon Insomnia/​Neonska nesanica

All that was neces­sa­ry
Was but a moment
Between two blinks
Of a neon ad
Beneath our win­dow
So you could pro­nounce
What both of us
Had known for long :
This land
Will never again
Be ours.
All it had ever
Given us
Were two
Damn pos­si­bi­li­ties
To shoot our­selves
In the head
With water pis­tols
Or
To go ASAP
And leave it
While it’s still drea­ming
Of a bet­ter future
Which will sur­ely come.
Those were the words
I’d been expec­ting to hear from you
All those years
And
I held you tight
Because I didn’t know
What else to do
At night
While blood was gushing out in the ring
On TV
In Italy
Bogdan Mitic
(But not our son
Bogdan Mitic)
With a sha­me­ful deci­sion
Lost
A match that was alrea­dy won.
 

 

 

Neonska nesa­ni­ca

 

Bio je potre­ban
samo tre­nu­tak
između dva trep­ta­ja
neonske rek­lame
pod našim pro­zo­rom
pa da izgo­vo­riš
ono što smo
oboje već odav­no zna­li

da ova zeml­ja
više nika­da
neće biti naša.

Sve što nam je
ikad pruži­la
bile su
samo dve moguć­nos­ti

da puca­mo sebi
u gla­vu
piš­tol­jem na vodu

ili
ode­mo što pre

i osta­vi­mo je
dok je još u snu
o sja­j­noj buduć­nos­ti
koja će usko­ro doći.

Bile su to reči
koje sam čekao da izgo­vo­riš
svih ovih godi­na
i
zagr­lio sam te snaž­no
jer nisam znao
šta bih dru­go

u noći
kad je sa TV-a
krv pljuš­ta­la po rin­gu

u Italiji je
Bogdan Mitić
(ali ne naš sin
Bogdan Mitić)
sram­nom
odlu­kom sudi­ja
izgu­bio
dobi­je­ni meč.
