The place where I write: Nikola Madzirov [Macedonia]

Posted in Autoren / poets, Nikola Madzirov by lyrikline on 17. March 2013

THE ONE WHO WRITES*

You write. About the things that already exist.
And they say you fantasize.

You keep quiet. Like the sunken nets
of poachers. Like an angel
who knows what the night may bring.

And you travel. You forget,
so that you can come back.

You write and you don’t want to remember
the stone, the sea, the believers
sleeping with their hands apart.

The window of my working room – Internationales Haus der Autoren Graz

More often I think of the windows outside my room than of the writing desks inside. To be an observer of writing makes me more invisible than to write as an observer.

In 2007 Nikola Madzirov had a residency at IHAG (Internationalen Haus der Autorinnen und Autoren Graz)
