Version 2Da ti neko bude drug

Treba da ima mirno lice koje govori
da ste jednom bili skupa i da to vrijeme
svijetli u ostalom vremenu.

Trebaju dvije žene koje ste bezbroj
puta zadovoljili i kojima, dok se smiju,
poigravaju meki vjenčići sala.

Treba plaža, jedna plaža, šljunak
i dvoje djece što taj šljunak
u čudu zagledaju.

Trebaju dva meka peškira, sapun
što klizi iz ruke u ruku, treba
i malo sreće da se to doživi.

(1995)

For Somebody To Be Your Friend

He should have a tranquil face saying how
you were together once and how those times glow
beyond all other times.

There should be two women you two have pleased
countless times, whose little laurels of fat
tremble delicately when they smile.

There should also be a beach, a pebbled beach,
and a couple of kids gazing at the pebbles
in astonishment.

And finally two soft beach towels are needed,
soap gliding from hand to hand—you also need
some luck to live to see something like that.
