In three lines

January 13, 2009

Boris Hristov is a contemporary Bulgarian poet. In his book ‘black letters on a black page’ words are compressed into three lines, ‘a book of titles alone’.

I have no wish to remain in anyone’s memory
knowing how Socrates and the fool
cohabit in me. [translation: R. Flint, B. Grinberg]
