Charlie Manson Came to Serbia

 

Charlie Manson
came to Serbia
though no one thought
it could happen
he arrived
around the same time
the Guča festival
was promoted
to an event
of national importance
though nobody invited him
Charlie Manson
came just
on time
they saw him
armed and walking
down dusty
country roads
shooting at everything that moves
inspecting the banks
of the Danube
and throwing a knife
and chunks of dismembered bodies
into the river
on the last floor
of a tall building
in the bathroom
he packed bloody remains
into plastic bags
(and later dumped them
in containers)
and this has nothing at all to do
with the fact that the Stones
played here at last
at their satanic
majesty’s request
maybe it all has to do with
politics
and transition
or maybe not
maybe some things
just have
nothing to do
with anything.
 

 

Čarli Menson je stigao u Srbiju

 

Čarli Menson
je stigao u Srbiju
iako niko nije mislio
da to može da se desi

stigao je
nekako u isto vreme
kada je Sabor u Guči
uvršten u događaje
od nacionalnog značaja

iako ga niko nije zvao
Čarli Menson
je ipak došao
u pravo vreme

sreli su ga
kako šeta naoružan
prašnjavim
seoskim putevima
i puca u sve što se pomera

kako kraj Dunava
razgleda obalu
baca nož
i delove raskomadanih tela
u reku

kako
na poslednjem spratu
jedne višespratnice
u kupatilu
pakuje krvave ostatke
u plastične vreće

(i kasnije ih razvozi
po kontejnerima)

i sve to nema veze 
što su Stounsi
najzad svirali ovde
na poziv njihovog
satanskog visočanstva                  

možda sve to ima veze
sa politikom
tranzicijom
ali možda i nema

možda neke stvari
naprosto
nikad nemaju veze
ni sa čim.
