Lampedusa Complex


Zoutpilaar, onomkeerbaar dromen
de vluchtelingen stromen
blijven komen
bomen huilen en rotsen verschuilen
versluierend hun gezicht
waar is dan dat licht,
die horizon voor iedereen
omdraaien Sodom en Gomorrha...
en nergens meer heen
niet terug kunnen
een zoutpilaar worden
bedolven door Neptuun
of door papieren horden
-hoezo opportuun-
sterven of heel
misschien een beetje
hoop verwerven
Europa's vet
raakt reeds besmet
en een beetje beschaamd
smeult het virus
genaamd
Lampedusa Complex! ! '

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
