Bluebird

(bere Harry Dean Stanton, posnetek je iz filma Born Into This) YouTube slika preogleda

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pur whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

Charles Bukowski (1920-1994)
The Last Night of the Earth Poems, 1992, str. 120

    J. Prevert je spisal recept za take in drugačne tiče … Naslova sicer ne vem, čisto komot pa si sposodim Leejevega To Kill a Mockingbird “Ptica ki prepeva v moji glavi In ponavlja da te ljubim In ponavlja da me ljubiš S svojo lajno me že gnjavi Jutri zjutraj jo zadavim.” Sicer pa ja, lepo, Slaven!
