Shaip Emërllahu

(Albania, 1962)


almost at dawn
the old year dying the new year cradling
they hurried to build walls

all through the name

they said
our graveyards won’t stretch
beyond the border of shadows

distant from nightmares
travelling we preferred to live our dream

outside walls
in the kingdom of the happiest sun

Translated by Ukzenel Buçpapaj.
