Artist's description:

Tomaž Šalamun: ČE BOM JAZ
Če bom jaz, Tomaž Šalamun, umrl od lakote, smo na koncu.
Na skrajnem robu smo.
Luči so v vrbah,
živina je na cestah,
otrok gre s kanglo po mleko in pade,
sneg se topi,
kruh je veličasten,
gostje se zibajo, zibajo.
Šolarji, zdržite s tačkami na hrbtu,
kot zdržijo veje smrek zelenje v zimi,
požirajte nemo ljudje,
duh rabi ploskev, da se odrine.
(v: Glagoli sonca, str. 57)

If I, Tomaž Šalamun, die of hunger, we are at the end.
We are at the forefront.
The lights are in the weeds,
livestock are on the roads,
the child goes with a bucket milk and falls,
snow melts,
bread is magnificent,
guests are rocking, rocking.
Schoolmates, hold with dots on your back,
as the branches of spruce sprout branches in the winter,
sweat mute people,
the ghost needs plots to stand out.
(in: The Glagolitic Sun, page 57)
