by Eric Chaet

I dreamed of neighbors
only slightly known
secretly suffering
their hopes thwarted—
that I could do nothing for them
& couldn’t even prevent
myself from being one of them.



AFFINITÉ – Eric Chaet
traduction française – Josée Brewer

J’ai rêvé de voisins
connus juste un peu
souffrant secrètement
leurs espérances contrecarrées
pour qui je ne pouvais rien faire
& ne pouvais même pas prévenir
d’être l’un d’eux moi-même.
