A selection of poems, translated to English by Hallberg Hallmundsson.

From Currents:

Red Tango

All shows sold out
but I got a ticked for Kafka
in all his misery
and I dozed like the others
in the new opera house
in the lake

Like a dog
were his last words

That at least I remember
from the text
he lay on the floor
and ...

Always fun going to the opera
when abroad
seeing something new
widening one's horizon
hobnobbing with other people
