SEMI-FINAL POEM:

9831756339

Mobilni ne, ne zvoni nigdje
osim u osebujnom prostoru uma:
izblijedjela sjećanja na sopstveno postojanje
propagiraju taj broj telefona,
kao unutrašnju percepciju Betovenove „Mjesečeve svjetlosti“.

Zvoni: ciklus za ciklusom, neprekidno.
Sad stiže do kraja, gdje ništa ne postoji
osim čovjeka- samog sa svojom muzikom,
koji sjedi na klupi u parku
gdje- poput ekspresionističke skice-
uvijek ostaje noć:
vječno nedostižna, tamnoplavo-pepeljasto-ljubičasta,
TEČE…

Nadam se da je još uvijek tu – nepoznata radio stanica
u predgrađu Balligaungea:

9 beskrajno
8 vječno
3 postojano
1 apsolutno
7 neprekidno
5 višegodišnje
6 kontinuirano
3 neprolazno
3 beskonačno
9 nepromjenljivo

…ostavljajući po strani sve na ovom svijetu, osim
SRŽI MELODIJE.

Prekasno je za sastanak.

(U sjećanje na Kishore Chatterjee, poznatog muzičkog kritičara i slikara- 9831756339 je bio njegov broj telefona…)

9831756339

A mobile no, rings nowhere
But a peculiar space called mind—
Faded memories of its own existence
Propagating this, a contact number
Like an inward perception of Beethoven’s ‘Moon Light’
Ringing cycle after cycle, unceasing.
Now reached a stretch, where nothing exists
But a man, alone with his music
And sitting on the benches from a park where
Like an expressinistic sketch
Always an evening stays,
Forever unfathomable dark-blue-ash-violet
S T R E A M I N G…
Hope he is there still—an unknown radio station
In the suburbs of Ballygaunge
9 Endless
8 perpetual
3 everlasting
1 absolute
7 ceaseless
5 perennial
6 continuous
3 unbroken
3 infinite
9 immutable
Putting aside of everything in this world

Except only

(Remembering Kishore Chatterjee, a renowned music critic and painter, 9831756339
Was his cell phone number… )
