poem of a lazy night

by Adrian Cretu

 

lazy
and quiet

silence

at peace with myself
tonight
and with all the mistakes of my life
I laze about on a foreign balcony
smoking

I look around, curiously
wondering how these flowers are called
and laugh
pleased with my ignorance

lacking ambition
and any desire
or expectations
without hope
or dreams of becoming
the silence embraces me
more and more
at her generous bosom
in the long poem of the lazy night

 

 

 

ars poetica

 

the air was moving lazily
around me
bored
like a drunk barfly
flying in circle

without warning
half an hour ago
I had a brilliant idea
for a poem –
it was full of anger
and postmodern wisdom.
it moved me deeply –
by the time I got myself
to write it
the poem left me

now I’m quietly listening
to the crickets outside
and waiting patiently
for the night
to come to an end

the only fight I still carry on
is
to breathe –
to inhale
and exhale
thoroughly

any more than this
would be useless now

 

 

urban snapshot

 

lost in a whirl of lights
boundless steel and glass buildings
and an endless stream of cars
of the great city
the two were sitting motionless
on a bench
one next to the other
overwhelmed

 

she sat her head lightly
on his shoulder
and whispered, in pain
‘I wish I could sleep’

‘tell me
will I ever get out of this?’

‘no’ –
he said –
‘it will become easier to bear
that’s all’
