The Lament Of The Whale

From too many years of horizontal waves

Crashing on the shore of my heart,

And from my body,

The tears

Falling down

Vertically

Burst into a ghastly

Cry of crisscross words.

(Adapted from the French original:

Des années de vagues horizontales

Cognent au rivage de mon coeur

Et de mon corps,

Des larmes

Qui tombent

A la verticale

Dans un effroyable

Cri de maux croisés.)
