You go hunting for metaphors,
that rhyme
with your ideas about the world.

Behind every syllable lurks a trap –
one more step and you’re hooked
trapped in predictable meanings.

from keeper of consonances
you imperceptibly become a keeper.

You are yet to rediscover
the harmony of dissonance.




Natalia Nedialkova
translated from Bulgarian by Dessy Tsvetkova
