Karel Šebek in B O D Y

I write to keep the train on course to crush me
it’ll happen on a morning no less beautiful than this
hands latticed in love like jailbars shall adorn every window
I am seeking death her silver in every living moment
words piled like cadavers
a death camp of happiness

– from an untitled poem by Karel Šebek, translated from the Czech by Ondřej Pazdírek.
