from the August 2013 issue: Brazil

the expiration date

síðsti søludagur

asks me
how old i am

 

i tell it
i’m the same age
as this morning’s darkness

 

but this evening
i’ll be the same age
as tomorrow’s light
and all the other goods
that have expired

síðsti søludagur

spyr meg
hvussu gamal eg eri

 

eg svari
at eg eri javngamal
við myrkrið í morgun

 

men í kvøld
verði eg javngamal
við ljósið í morgin
og allar aðrar vørur
ið eru vorðnar ov gamlar
