Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Tomas Transtromer: National Insecurity


Tomas Tranströmer: National Insecurity

The Under Secretary leans forward and draws an X
and her ear-drops dangle like swords of Damocles.
As a mottled butterfly is invisible against the ground
so the demon merges with the opened newspaper.
A helmet worn by no one has taken power.
The mother-turtle flees flying under the water.

Translated  Robin Fulton,  1997

Ferenc Juhasz: Then there are fish


Ferenc Juhasz: Then there are fish
Forever confusing smoke with weeds,
clouds and sky with water.
Born with no lungs, just a blister
floating in a cage of splinters,
listless fins and hyperthyroid eyes.
Even the smallest
fry
chase their hunger as boldly as carp –
mouths, nostrils, eyes
burst on a rising scream like a shoal of bubbles.
A world of nothing but water!
Houses and trees
float up like giant bubbles.
Translated David Wevill, 1970
