“Lazarus” by Ágnes Nemes Nagy.


Round his left shoulder, as he got up slowly
every day’s muscle gathered in agony
His death was flayed off him like a gauze.
Because second-birth has such harsh laws.

From: Between by Ágnes Nemes Nagy.Trans, Hugh Maxton. Dedalus Press , Dublin and Corvina Press, Budapest.
