Sunday morning I am at the market.

Soon it will be time for the family lunch

coleslaw would be good.

I line up but ahead of me are

numerous big and excited rabbits.

No one can get to the cabbage bliss before them.


I give up drawn by the aroma of onion

and garlic – healthy yet inexpensive.

I line up but in front of me

a horde of those who without onion

cannot cry over anything,

before them no one can buy tears.

If nothing else I could get nails for the house

long ago started in my stories,

I line up but in front of me

builders of jails, prisons, and scaffolds,

the brothers caught in critical thinking,

no one can buy before them a single nail.

Impatient family is asking

what I bought. I say much

and from that which I bought there

this poem is created,

and without bloody bites lunch has no taste,

in front of the one who is just at this moment being crucified

in vain at the top of Golgotha

completely alone.
