Nemes Nagy Ágnes: Like someone (Mint aki in English)

Portre of Nemes Nagy Ágnes

Back to the translator

Mint aki (Hungarian)

Mint aki messze hírt hozott
és aztán végleg elfeledte,
s a szemcsés fényből egy marok
benne maradt, batyuba kötve –
így vándorol a feledékeny,
a teste gyűrött köpenyében.

Like someone (English)

Like someone who came with a message from far away
and then forgot it completely
and of all of the grainy light only a handful
stayed in him, tied in a bundle –
so wanders the forgetful one
in his body's rumpled coat.
