Synchronized chaos

  1. 1. Synchronized Chaos Poetry by Tatjana Debeljacki (Croatian and English Translation) NEŠTO MOJE Reci mi kako sačuvati čistim ovo što imamo, jer znaš, zaboravih ti reći, ja uništim zaista sve što dotaknem, a moram ti reći, volim kada me gledaš onako krijući, misleći da ne vidim, volim kada pričaš, čak i nekom drugome, onako preglasno, da te mogu čuti i kada nisam u blizini,i odem, verovatno nepotrebno, bezbroj puta popraviti šminku, jer znam da ćeš me ispratiti pogledom, a moram ti reći, kolena ne slušaju kada si u blizini, i zaista se bojim da ne uprljam nešto ovako čisto i nevino, jer znaš, moram ti reći, ja uništim sve što dotaknem,
  2. 2. zato te molim, reci mi kako da nas sačuvam, i kako da savladam želju da ti kažem, dok me gledaš i dok mi pričaš, “zagrli me i poljubi me” od straha da ne uništim sve. [English Translation] Something mine Tell me how to keep what we have pure Because, you know, I forgot to tell you, I destroy whatever I touch, And I have to tell you, I like the way you look at me secretly Thinking that I don’t see it I love to hear you talking Even to somebody else, Too loud so that I can hear you even if I’m not aroundAnd when I have gone, probably without any need, to fix my make-up for a hundredth time, Because I know your eyes will follow me, And I have to tell you, My knees won’t listen to me when you’re near me, And I’m really afraid of spoiling this so pure and innocent, Because you know, I have to tell you, I destroy whatever I touch, And that is why I’m begging you, Tell me how to save us
  3. 3. And how to prevent myself from telling you, While you’re looking at and talking to me, “Hold me and kiss me” Fearing that I will ruin everything.Tatjana Debeljacki is from Uzice, Serbia.
