Pilinszky angolul

János Pilinszky (Idegteke)

Passion-play of Ravensbruck

Steps forward from the rest of ’em
Stops in the frame of silence
Like movie screen are flickering
Prison wear and inmate’s head

Mind-bogglingly lonely figure
The pores are showing sharply
Being so gigantic all over
Still being so tiny, tiny

It is finished. The rest of it
All the rest that coming
Was forgetting about to give a sound
While going down, succumbing
