The Admirers Of The Little Box

Vasko Popa

 Next Poem          

Sing little box

Don't let sleep overtake you
The world's awake within you

In your four-sided emptiness
We turn distance into nearness
Forgetfulness into memory

Don't let your nails come loose

For the very first time
We watch sights beyond this world
Through your keyhole

Turn your key in our mouths
Swallow words and numbers
Out of your song

Don't let your lid fly open
Your bottom drop

Sing little box

    Hmm, to be honest this one didn't resonate with me that much. The imagery was a bit abstract and it felt kind of inaccessible, like there was something I just wasn't getting. A little too out there for my liking.
