Four Translations

A Poem by Floundering About

Y

on the right

trees go

Y Y Y Y

wires dipping

up and down


not so fast:

the spaces between

Ys are

well

I’m not much of a typographer


neither it seems

is the road


it’s an old problem:

how to get

from one Y

to another?


it’s not snappy


Y

not?





Why

on the right?

Trees say

Y Y Y Y

wires dipping

wires dipping


what’s between

Y and

Y is

between Y and

well

Y


old problem:

how to get

one Y

from another?


not by snapping


Why

not?





Y.

On the right

trees pass.

Y Y Y Y

do wires dip

up and down?


The spaces between Y

aren’t so fast.


Neither

is the road.


How to solve an old problem

with another Y?


Don’t snap your way out.


Y

not?





The not right

trees go by slowly

Y

Y

Y

Y

Wires not dipping

up and down


not moving at all

The spaces between


are

well

nothing but typography


So it seems

is the road


There’s an old problem

How to reach

from one


to another


without snapping?



Can’t?
