2 poems from Alisa Velaj

ILL OMEN CHALLENGED
 
The owl’s hooting atop green trees
cannot dwindle down the anxiety of nothingness.
 
A CUCKOO’S GRIN
Every pillow of lilies holds underneath a song or a verse.
A cuckoo’s grin – a requiem onto the air’s skin!
 
Translated from Albanian by Arben P. Latifi
