Vacation in reality
2009

translated by Mania Meziti 

The grief is over.
No more tears.
In the old photo album,
you watch his face
as it peeps through the rocks.
(The picture was taken
few days before his sudden death.)
Your eyes are dry.
You fill the kettle with water.
You will drink some coffee.
You will eat an apple.
You will live.
