Mircea Ionescu-Quintus At Jilava I read on a wall, scrawled in blood: “locked here for eight years,” and saw you, brave and silent, humble scribe unknown. Below, on the same wall, engraved: “five years and six months I stayed,” and as I stared at gates and walls there were but years, and months, and lives. I read on a wall, scrawled in blood, I was locked up, I was locked up . . Oh God, how I want to know what tally, one day, will I scrawl? 15 16 The Devil’s Grinder Oamenii Zadarnic îndrăznesc plopii spre înalturi, zadarnic piscurile până la poalele norilor; zadarnic vulturii, amestecându-se cu aştrii şi căzând împreună; pentru că nu sus în ceruri, ci aici pe pământ sunt oamenii.

Broaştele şi greierii s-au prins la taifas, pe marginea lacului foşneşte stuful, din freamătul zilei nimic n-a mai rămas, doar pasărea neagră-şi croncăne năduful. De dincolo, de la ,,Rex‘‘, vin adieri de jaz, ca note spânzurate pe portativ de sârmă, ca iarăşi amintirea a unui vechi necaz, ca prima-nfiorare a dragostei din urmă. Trasoare şi stele se joacă în noapte, tihnirea se-aşează iar rece otreapă, rămân încă treze poveştile-n şoapte şi stânci adormite cu botul în apă. 1 Lac in sud-estul României.

Not even One single star In this night of mine When, With fingers of ice I write you, I write you. 11 12 The Devil’s Grinder Sărman Icar Visai să zbori spre soare, iară, mai liber, fără de habar; şi meşterind pe-aripi de ceară, ai adormit, sărman Icar . . Mircea Ionescu-Quintus Poor Icarus You were dreaming of flying towards the sun, again, free, freer, without a care, and mastering your waxen wings, you drifted off, poor Icarus . . 13 14 The Devil’s Grinder La Jilava Citeam pe-un zid, cu sânge scris: ,,opt ani am stat aici închis‘‘ şi te vedeam, brav şi tăcut, smerite scrib necunoscut.
