Anna Idelevich

Early in the morning

Hohelied #4 by Egon Tschirch

Early in the morning jelly smokes over the water,
put semolina and millet in the boiler
and make a dream in the ocean of love.
Your love.
Disheveled my braids,
braids, not just disgrace,
curls of curly house.
Will fall like a beam into a ditch,
will whisper to me, will embrace,
and the line will run.
He will press, he will kiss,
and I’m already a river…
