Pilinszky János: Passione (Passió in Italian)

Portre of Pilinszky János
Portre of Cikos Ibolja

Back to the translator

Passió (Hungarian)

Csak a vágóhíd melege,
muskátliszaga, puha máza,
csak a nap van. Üvegmögötti csöndben
lemosdanak a mészároslegények,
de ami történt, valahogy mégse tud végetérni.

Passione (Italian)

Solo il calore del mattatoio,
l’odore di geranio, la morbida lucentezza,
solo il giorno esiste. Nel silenzio, dietro il vetro
si lavano i giovani macellatori,
ma ciò ch’è accaduto, in qualche modo non ci riesce a finire.
