Eliza Segiet writes


Poor millionaires
are like water in a dry river,
broken glass,
leafless trees.

childless millionaires
on the verge of life
adopt heirs.

They cross the brink of darkness
in the hope that
Made in Japan will survive.

Before the end they understand
that they are both
rich and beggars,

- they lived to work.

They fulfilled their desires
with the love to work.

Everything else

they postponed
- for later.

--tr. Artur Komoter
