Common Language
 
We have a common language
like for instance
I could have been your father,
as a home for me and you.
My unconscious comes by your unconscious,
even words
are floodgates no more.
Our tongues are at ease.
Say ah and I’ll follow you,
say a-ha and I’ll follow too.
We’re winding in sheets wrapped
like two weary wrestlers.
Even words
are floodgates no more.
I should be looking at you.
I should be coming to you too.
We have a common language.
 
 
 
 
שפה משותפת
ציפי שחרור
 
יֵשׁ לָנוּ שָׂפָה מְשֻׁתֶּפֶת, כְּמוֹ לְמָּשָׁל
יָכֹלְתִּי לִהְיוֹת אָבִיךְ,
כְּמוֹ בַּיִת מִשְׁפַּחְתִּי לִי. לְךָ.
תַּת הַכָּרָתִי נִפְגֶּשֶׁת בְּתַת הַכָּרָתְךָ
אֲפִלּוּ מִלִּים אֵינָן סְכָרִים.
לְשׁוֹנוֹתֵינוּ נִנּוֹחוֹת
אֱמֹר אָה וַאֲנִי בְּעִקְבוֹתֶיךָ,
אִמְרִי אֲהָהּ וַאֲנִי בְּעִקְּבוֹתַיִךְ.
כְּרוּכִים בִּסְדִינִים, כְּמִתְאַגְרְפִים עֲיֵפִים.
אֲפִלּוּ מִלִּים אֵינָן סְכָרִים עוֹד.
אֲנִי צָרִיךְ לְהִתְבּוֹנֵן בָּךְ,
אֲנִי צְרִיכָה לְבַקֵּר אֶצְלְךָ.
יֵשׁ לָנוּ שָׂפָה מְשֻׁתֶּפֶת.
