K.P. Kavafis

Ebendaselbst

Die Umgebung der Wohnung, der Lokale, der Nachbarschaft,

wo ich seit Jahren schaue und schreite.

Erschaffen habe ich dich in Freude und Trauer,

in so vielen Ereignissen und Sachen.

Du bist als Ganzes mein Gefühl geworden.

(übersetzt durch mich – S.G.)

Enough with scrolling

C.P. Cavafy

In the Same Space

The setting of houses, cafés, the neighbourhood
that I’ve seen and walked through years on end:
I created you while I was happy, while I was sad,
with so many incidents, so many details.
And, for me, the whole of you has been transformed into feeling.
(Translated by Edmund Keeley)
