St-Flying Kidney


(from the show ¨Haunted Womb Tour¨)

Translation, Ian Christopher Goodman


My kidney, twinkling and radiant,

floats in a crimson sky.

Its shadow shimmers on the ripples of the sea.


Such a spurt of blood!

Red sprinkles rise slowly and gracefully

from the ground.


My dismembered body

is washed on the beach by the sunset.

Golden vapours embalm the space.


O Kidney in the heavens,

by your will may my body be purified.


(In turn, a stray child on a southern island

becomes a mother, and Virgin Mary’s lullaby

echoes in the coconut grove.)
