I won’t add anything
to what I have written already,
as if to somehow correct
the light of words
I’ll expect nothing from anybody
when between the words
there is too little silence
neither do I want to enclose myself with the li’l ones
to teach them clean expressions.
I won’t throw the fire of my poems
in anybody’s eyes
I won’t seek meanings that burn.
I refuse anything that resembles a parent’s kiss
that is given too late or is too long awaited for
English translation Rafi Manory
