Stars’ Cold Equilibrium
poetry [ ]

by [Nichita_Stanescu ]

2005-10-17  |     |  Submited by Axel Lenn

There are wonderful ages ahead
when stars’ cold equilibrium
shall be broken, and when
the rows of those walked past
shall meet those walking presently.

Man, o how many bodies he’s had
and how many still to be
tried on for life!

Man! how many bodies does it take
to see him fed up to his limits
of this unstable sphere!

We’ll end up devouring
this blue earth completely.
We’ll consume it, consume it.

We’ll throw away its head and bones,
and Man, insatiable Man,
with one billion bodies
shall start devouring hungrily
stars’ cold equilibrium.

(adapted translation Axel H. Lenn)
