Violeta Boncheva 199

She sprouted in the lush bitter stuff of the yard

as if the dock had blossomed

without any secret in her eyes

with solemn breasts

like Easter bells

the owner of bird songs

dog and cat
she watched the hyacinths and the dill

and talked to me about old things

finally she put a colourful distaff

from Gornal Oryahovitsa

in my hands

so that I don’t get lost along the way

I

the world citizen
🌿🌿🌿
HOMESICKNESS
I learned to swim

to reach the shores of salvation

but I know

that not fatigue from the distance

and my sadness

heavier than myself

will drown me

 

Violeta Boncheva 5

 DECEMBER TWELFTH
I follow the matachines’ sandals

Aztec costumes and feathers

accompany the clap

of leather ties
Sudden rain washes away

my unforgiven sins

and the road

which I will pass here

 

 

Violeta Boncheva 6a

 PICTURE
From the plane

Mexico City

looks like a lump of sugar

flattened in melted chocolate

in a blue porcelain plate

around for luxury

something green is waving
I swallow this picture

because I suspect

that then not everything

it will happen delicious

Violeta Boncheva 1
