An opium eating horse

Translated to english by : Haider Alkabi

*******

My body was in one room and i in another

I cut my self while shaving and smiling in the mirror

When i heard that some scuba divers had found a horse eating opium in a silver mine .

Not long ago , i arrived here walking from another planet ,

Took a bath and shaved when the above incident occured .

Iam going to meet dancer at the post office .

(Perhaps her husband is now smoking aboard a ship )

I will buy coal tongs for my heater

and curtains smuggled from some distant country .

With the dancer at my side .
