Self Portrait (English)

Last Sunday morning,
Sitting on the tram
I found myself beside a priest,
A fat and gloomy man.
I looked over his shoulder
And I read “Nunquam”.
Now I happened to be reading
“Les Amours de Madame”
And even though he scowled at me
I didn’t give a damn.
And that just shows you
The sort I am

Önarckép (Hungarian)

A múlt vasárnap reggel
a villamospadon
egy jóltáplált komor pap
volt a társutasom
Könyvébe sandítottam
és e szót láttam nunquam
én pedig éppen Egy Hölgy
Szerelmei-t olvastam
Persze fütyültem rá
hogy elkárhoztatott
ami csak azt mutatja
miféle is vagyok
