Translation: 5 Poems from Everything Shimmers by Naja Marie Aidt

Poetry by Naja Marie Aidt from Everything Shimmers

Translation from the Danish by Susanna Nied

you say the kitchen doesn’t fit me   it’s too little   so am I too big   too demanding   my soul hangs out the window, staring   my hand scrubs out a cup   my eye weeps   but isn’t that with joy   can you imagine   you say   licking the city   what if it were a sugar sculpture we could keep in our pockets   suck on when we were alone   I have such a crush on it   you say   I love it so much   well, take off your apron now, champagne girl, and become a peacock, a fountain!   2,220 more words

than red and orange. The old buildings
are a lusty black and gray, government hovels… 565 more words
