...και στα αγγλικά...
A drowned beer carter was heaved onto the table
Someone or other had clamped a dark light lilac aster
between his teeth.
When, entering from the chest
under the skin
with a long knife I cut out the tongue and palate,
I must have bumped it, for it slid
into the brain lying alongside.
I packed it into his chest-cavity
with the sawdust stuffing
when we sewed up.
Drink your fill in your vase!
Rest in peace
