Ashes – Eliza Segiet


Is this really happening?
What if
I only have such sinful dreams?

People kill animals to live,
others to…

I know,
they carry out orders,
breaking the laws of nature.

Nipped I feel I am not dreaming.

There are ashes around.
An effect always has a cause.
I see the first,
I will not understand the other.

(Translated by Artur Komoter)
