The house of forgetting - 7

from Kastelimme heitä runsaasti kahvilla (ntamo 2009)

by Timo Harju


Granny in a cardigan that's fading
slowly evanescing
hands before her on the table
lost in warm grey reflection,
rocking snowflakes in hair’s cradle
eye-sockets full of snow.

translated from Finnish by David McDuff
