Viljan

Översättning från mina assyriska dikter

 

Se inte på din kärlek med högmod

 gå inte vid den passerande vinden

bli inte lurad av vissnade höstblommors skönhet,

och vårens knoppar eller spädbarnets doft,

och sandens hägringar i solnedgång.

 

Plocka en blomma från min inhägnade trädgård

drick av mina massakrerade tårar

doppa dig i min krossade kropps vatten

marschera inte på väg med de som lurar

 Jag väntar på din vissnande kropp

Jag väntar på dina i förtids grånande hårsvall

innan jag hamnar i Hiroshimas paradis.

 

Marschera inte under våldförare i månens ljus

bry dig inte om papegojas härmande tjatter

om du ler mot dem

blir de fredliga som duvor

om du avslöjar deras skam

blir de vilda som vargar

de fyller sina magar med förälskade och älskandes kroppar

och de släcker sin törst av förälskade hjältar.

 

leta efter din kärlek,

bland vårens blommor

leta efter din resande vän bland tysta gudar

marschera under din skinande stjärnas ljus

plocka din blomma bland vårens blommor

ge den livet från din våta andedräkt

ge den högsommarvärme från dina bröst

och när du träffar din längtans vän

ge honom din eviga blomma

och bli hans eviga livs hopp

då har du träffat din eviga kärlek.
