Polley , Jacob: Egy mézes üvegcsupor (A Jar of Honey in Hungarian)

Portre of Polley , Jacob

A Jar of Honey (English)

You hold it like a lit bulb,
a pound of light,
and swivel the stunned glow
around the fat glass sides:
it's the sun, all flesh and no bones
but for the floating knuckle
of honeycomb
attesting to the nature of the struggle

Egy mézes üvegcsupor (Hungarian)

Úgy tartod e fél kilónyi fényt,
mint egy égő villanykörtét
és az üvegcsupor vastag falai körül
forgatod a kábult ragyogást:
ez a Nap, csontmentes és csupa hús
kivéve a nehéz harc
természetéről tanúskodó,
lebegő lépsejt csuklóját.
