Albert Einstein – Matthew Zapruder

doar o mâna de oameni
încearcă să înțelegă cu adevărat
relativitatea ca tatăl meu
care zeci de ani a avut
aceeași carte gri
lânga pat
cu diagrame
cu săgeți ce uneau
ceasuri și turnuri
dimineața
pregătea ouă
și ținând
o tigăiță roșie
ne spunea copiilor lui obosiți
că un radio într-un tren
care trece cu viteza luminii
ar putea teoretic
să transmită cântecul viitorului
now he is gone
yes it’s confusing
I have placed
my plastic plant
in front of the window
its eternal leaves
sip false peace
my worldly nature
comforts me
I wish we had
a radio sunlight
powers so without
wasting precious
electrons we could listen
to news concerning
Africa’s southern coast
where people are trying
with giant colored
sail to harness
the cool summer wind
with its special name
I always forget
last night I read a book
which said he was born
an old determinist
and clearly it was all
beautiful guesses
and I watched you knowing
where you travel
when you sleep
I will never know

(din The Believer)
