J. H. Prynne

J. H. Prynne, Down where changed (poetry, 1979)Was sagst du denn dann so
also ja und nein
etwa viermal am Tag

angewidert und verlegen
im Gedanken an weniger
sagst du ach was soll’s.

– J. H. Prynne (geb. 1936)

Deutsche Übersetzung von Johannes Beilharz, Copyright © 2014.

Das Original:

What do you say then
well yes and no
about four times a day

sick and nonplussed
by the thought of less
you say stuff it.

J. H. Prynne (born 1936)

from Down where changed, Ferry Press, London, 1979.
