On The News Of The Death Of Lady M.T.

Oh very well done indeed, Death,

what an achievement,

to bring down such a fortress!

To devour so much flesh, grind up so much bone

in such a short space of time.

To exhaust so much energy,

quickly, as if fizzling out.

What a result, Death,

what a demonstration of strength,

(As if we wouldn’t have

taken your word for it.)

poem dedicated to Mira Trailović (22.01.1929  – 07.08.1989)
