После долгой вечерней беседы
над моим нелюбимым блюдом
(что б вы знали на будущее -- это молочный суп)
мама кричит: тебе наплевать, что я говорю, да?
Опять ты бегал к отцу.

Я такой начинаю мямлить, нет, мам, не бегал.
А она хватает меня за шкирку, как нашкодившего щенка,
и шипит, ну а где ты был
между завтраком и обедом?
У Санька не играл, я видала маму Санька.

Тут я как бы сливаю ферзя --
да, сдаюсь, рассекал на речке,
впадлу было бросать ребят, извини меня, извини.
А она начинает плакать -- у тебя же его словечки,
даже твое "извини" как его "извини" звенит.

Всякий раз ты мне врёшь, а сам отцовских наречий,
междометий его помойных нахватываешь, как блох.
Он себя изувечил, и тебя теперь изувечит,
он нарочно с тобой встречается, мне назло.

Потом мы полдня как бы в ссоре и не говорим об этом,
тяжко, и воздух густой, и громко зудит комар.
Мам, не бойся, все будет в норме,
я вапще не буду поэтом,
я буду прозаиком, мам.

в голове многократным эхом
корма куркума кайман
карман кардамон кармин

И перевод Евгении Алексеевой, https://thyme-for-love.dreamwidth.org/


After one of my mom's usual sermons
over fish with them baked brussels sprouts
(and just for the record , that is like my least favorite food)
she yells at my face - don't you dare lie, you were at your father's,
you know I can see you right through!

Me be like - who? me? at my dad's? no, mom, I would never!
and she grabs me by scruff like some pup that pissed in her shoe,
seething - oh yeah? where were you
when you said you are going to Ernie's?
I talked to his mom, she says she saw nothing of you!

There I pretend to cave in,
like "you got me!", in guilty defiance -
guys made a raft at the river, I'm sorry, now stop with that fuss!
but she's crying already - of course, that's his bullshitty parlance.
Even your meaningless sorry vibrates just like his always does.

You think I'm what, deaf? You think, I can't hear it?
His trashy adverbs, his puns that you pick up like fleas?
He crippled himself, now he seeks to make you a cripple,
he's seeing you just for the pleasure of messing with me!

Then I am grounded, she's sad, we're talking around this matter,
air is thick like molasses and silence is pressing my spine.
Me ain't no poet, mom, really,
don't fret, it ain't gonna happen,
I swear I'll write with no rhyme.

them words inside be instantly flashing
morale beguile sublime
three-dime deny lifeline
