Pilinszky János: Crime And Punishment (Bűn és bűnhődés in English)

Portre of Pilinszky János

Bűn és bűnhődés (Hungarian)

Sheryl Suttonnak

A befalazott képzelet
még egyre ismételgeti -

A pillanat villanyszék trónusán
még ott az arc,           
sziklába mártott nyakszirt,
gyönyörü kéz -
pórusos jelenléted.

Még tart a nyár.

Ereszd le jogarod, királynő.

Crime And Punishment (English)

To Sheryl Sutton

The walled in fantasy
still keeps on repeating -

On the electric throne of the minute
the face is still there,
a nape dipped in cliff,
a beautiful hand -
your porous presence.

It’s still summer.

Let your sceptre down, queen.
