Let’s escape from time 

Translated from the Macedonian by:: Katerina Tanovska


Let’s escape from time

that threatens us with a pulled bow

and takes aim with the small arrow


This is what I wanted to tell you:

– If I pass with my hand on a geographical map

I will not touch the mountains nor the peaks

I will not get wet nor fill my hands with soil

so tonight when you pass your hand through my body

you won’t find dust or wind, neither my name

that is always reborn

Because I do not know how much time had passed tonight

minute, hour, year, lifetime



Sometimes when I look up and down

I do not know which trail seems longer

one on the jet plane in the sky

or the one that the snail had left behind
