lyrics

from 'Paths' (1973), by Tomas Tranströmer, translated by Robin Fulton.

The white sun is soaking through the smog.
The light drips, gropes its way down

to my deep-down eyes that are resting
deep under the city looking up

seeing the city from below: streets, foundations –
like aerial photos of a city in war

the wrong way round – a mole photo:
silent squares in somber colours.

The decisions are taken there. No telling
bones of the dead from bones of the living.

The sunlight’s volume is turned up,
it floods into flight-cabins and peapods.
