- Keko Prijatelj
Bursting sensation in the mist
Burning of horror of epiphany
How mystical one looks
On that path I am a cricket
Positioned on that handsome tree
Expecting to burst of self-annoyance
Oh mystical city of Split
Air of the wings
Who ask who
Who are the earthworms bathing
In the sweat of the sky
Give that lamp a tree!
Standing nude bright it mocks everything in sight
You two make such a mythical pair
If I were a cricket positioned on your branch...
