In Vain I Migrate - Abdellatif Laâbi (translated Andre Naffis-Sahely)

by gsa123

I migrate in vain

In every city I drink the same coffee

and resign myself to the waiter's impassive face

The laughter of nearby tables

disturbs the evening's music

A woman walks by for the last time

In vain I migrate

ensuring my own alienation

I find the same crescent moon in every sky

and the stubborn silence of the stars

In my sleep I speak

a medley of languages

and animal calls

The room where I wake

is the one I was born in

I migrate in vain

The secret of birds eludes me

as does my suitcase's magnet

which springs open

at each stage of the journey
