Altceva

Unde-aí mai fost ?

Ce-ai mai văzut?
Ce-ai mai făcut?
 
Mumbai, Dubai, Kitai,
Lume, lume…
Colcăială de lume,
Am văzut trecutul
Am văzut prezentul
Și …
am plâns.
De dor și de rușine.
 
Mda, …
Dramă.
și unde te mai duci?
 
În mine.
 
Africa de Sud?
Din nou Australia?
 
Nu.
 
În M I N E.
 
Cât mai adânc.
Să-nțeleg …
de unde?
dorul ăsta de
… altceva.

Things from the Past

My favourite Christmas ornament.

yellow with
little white and red flowers,
probably hand painted.
damaged and awkwardly repaired:
wrinkled cardboard and old glue.
a plain, boring and ugly object for today.
no shine, no movement; no fragrance, no sound.
an old object:
just hanging in a fir-tree and
capturing the light
of the sun or
the dining room lamps
throwing them back
not in thousands of sparkles,
but in a faded, mellow, subdued radiance
that brings to my mind so many memories.
 
my first glimpses of life:
the awe and mystery of Christmas.
my first Christmas tree
in a haze
of memory or smoke
from real candles -
their grey, church-like-smell.
the joy,
the wonder,
the security …
sheer happiness…
waiting for Christmas to happen.
 
I look at the little sun shining,
not burning, in my palm,
in the fir tree
in its storage box:
all those memories come back!
a life time of Christmases:
rustling candies wrapped up in shiny silver and gold,
the smell of oranges, a luxury.
home baked  sweet bread with lots of nuts,
the whispers of parents and neighbours
getting things ready for Father Christmas to come,
laughter,
apples,
gifts,
my first Jewish Father Christmas,
the distant sound of carolers in the streets,
orășelul copiilor,
frozen feet and noses,
boiled wine and spiced up țuica,
poems in exchange of gifts,
a this-small-dwarf-bathing-in-a-coffee-pot,
Moș Gerilă …
 
The pain of discovery,
the denial of mythology,
the happy sparkle of red wine,
cigarette smoke,
sausages and sarmale,
cold cuts,
stories,
my own kids’ expectations,
French perfumes, furs,
American cigarettes.
Stories … .

Lucruri

Globul meu preferat.

Galben cu floricele albe și roșii,
probabil pictat de mână
ciobit și lipit stângaci.
probabil banal, plictisitor, chiar urât
pentru gusturile de azi.
 
Nu sclipește
nu vorbește
nu cântă
nu sare
nu se mișcă
Nu parfum
Nu lumânare
Nu face nimic
doar atârnă
într-un brad
ecologic.
 
Atrage razele soarelui
ale lămpilor din sufragerie
și le reîntoarce,
nu în zeci de mii de scântei,
ci într-o strălucire difuză
care trezește  amintiri.
 
splendoarea și misterul Crăciunului,
primul meu brad de Crăciun
întrezărit ca prin ceață
în cămăruța care mi-a fost primul acasă.
 
Amintiri?
Construcții?
 
cum a luat foc și
a ars primul meu brad de Crăciun.
o lumânare adevărată,
nu leduri.
mirosul cenușiu de biserică.
sentimentul miracolului,
al siguranței și
al fericirii pure
când așteptam să se întâmple Crăciunul.
 
micul soare îmi scânteiază în palmă,
trezind o viață de Crăciunuri:
bomboane foșnind în învelișuri de argint sau de aur,
mireasma portocalelor, ce lux!
cozonacul făcut în casă,
cu multă nucă,
șoaptele părinților și
ale vecinilor pregătind
venirea lui Moș Crăciun,
râsete, mere, nuci, daruri, primul meu Moș Crăciun,
Hanuka-fără-să-știu,
sunetul depărtat al colindătorilor pe străzi,
Orășelul Copiilor,
nasuri,
năsuce și picioare înghețate,
arome de vin sau țuică fierte,
poezii în schimbul darurilor,
un pitic-așa-de-mic-făcea-baie-ntr-un-ibric,
 
Moș Gerilă,
durerea descoperirii,
negarea mitologiei,
 
scânteierea vinului roșu,
fumul de țigară,
cârnați și sarmale, răcituri,
ciocolată,
povești,
dorințele copiilor mei,
parfumuri franțuzești,
blănuri fine,
mai multe povești,
dureri și bucurii,
… povești.
