Summer 2004

Philippe Soupault
tr. Julia Murkin

I'm not sleeping Georgia
I shoot arrows into the darkness Georgia
I'm waiting Georgia
The fire is like snow Georgia
The night is my neighbor Georgia
I hear every single noise Georgia
I see the smoke climbing and escaping Georgia
I walk stealthily along in the shadows Georgia
I run - here is the street to the suburbs Georgia
Here is a town which is the same
And which I don't recognize Georgia
I hurry - here is the wind Georgia
And the cold and silence and fear Georgia
I run away Georgia
I run Georgia
The clouds are low and they're going to fall Georgia
I have to be in your arms Georgia
I'm not closing my eyes Georgia
I call 'Georgia'
I call you Georgia
Will you come Georgia
soon Georgia
Georgia Georgia Georgia
I'm not sleeping Georgia
I'm waiting for you Georgia
