Minus Sixteen
2016

translated by Lena Kallergi 

 

I will stay with the tree
in the walkway.
I will hold out my hands to the teenage branches
and, wrapped
around its skin,
I will expand to the ground.

I will remain a tree
in the walkway.

My fingernails will blossom
on winter’s windowpanes.

I will remain in the walkway
a tree.

Let my loved ones
spray me with rain
so I can raise a tree
in the walkway.
