In the night labyrinth
Birds enticed to sing wangga.
The cowries spare no gloss and variety
On a rag carpet— wicker chairs.
Autochthones rest their bones.
Beneath the sand—charcoal,
Ochre-decorated souls and skulls.
One-third— in reverie,




Every morning
My bones like tesserae
Try to find their place
In accordance with the cycle
Of pain.




Under the old house eaves
The wind counts  bruises
Swallows’ nest gapes
Abandoned empty
A sad blind eye
Into the farthest
Dry-mud daubed adios
On the window sill
Unmolested house flies
Create their foreign art
With a touch of anarchy. 



Vyarka Kozareva, Ruse, Bulgaria
