Sirowitz, Hal: Girlfriend Over for Dinner

Portre of Sirowitz, Hal

Girlfriend Over for Dinner (English)

She's very pretty, Mother said,

but she's going to leave you.

She was talking about her future,

& you weren't in it,

so I asked her to tell it to me again,

just in case she made a mistake & left you out,

but you weren't in the second version either.

She talked about going away to school,

& when I asked her what she was

planning to bring with her,

she talked about her coat, her boots,

but she never mentioned you.

She says she's fond of you,

but people say that about puppies

they're about to give away.

Barátnő családi vacsorán (Hungarian)

Nagyon szép lány, mondta anya,

De el fog hagyni.

Beszélt a jövőről,

És te nem voltal benne, kértem,

Mondja el még egyszer, hátha

Véletlenül kifelejtett,

De a második változatban sem voltál benne.

Mondta, hova fog iskolába járni, és amikor

Kérdeztem, mit visz magával,

Megemlítette a kabátját, a csizmáját,

De téged nem.

Mondta, hogy mindig nagyon kedvelt,

De így szoktak beszélni

Arról a kiskutyáról is,

Amit végül elajándékoznak.
