Kálnoky László: I Lived In A World (Olyan világban éltem in English)

Portre of Kálnoky László

Olyan világban éltem (Hungarian)

Olyan világban éltem,
hol bárgyú kések szeleteltek
búzacipó-mosolyú arcokat –
hol főzelékszagú homályban
fortyogva pangtak el az eszmék –
hol a sárból gyúrt ember
sárból gyúrta isteneit.

I Lived In A World (English)

I lived in a world
where stupid knives carved
wheat-loaf-smile faces -
where in kitchen-smell murk
notions dwindled away bubbling -
where people made of mud
out of mud made their gods.
