Not To Trample- Marcin Jagnus- Poland

…not to step on animals, not to tease the grass
the grass keeps on existing, the existence gets grassy.

Marcin Jagnus:
I wrote the whole text in 2018. It is based on my recollection of one poem’s line. Despite all my efforts I failed to discover the author’s identity and poem’s title. If you happen to come across the similar one, pease let me know: nottoATszybki.pl
ENGLISH TRANSLATION (thanks to Beata Kingston):
not to appear
not to stop, not…
…to enter
don’t touch!
not to talk about anything
not to close the eyes
not to blow out a candle, let it burn,
don’t stop forest fire, when horses…
not to look around
not to stare
don’t photograph!
not to carve, not to blink, not to provoke, not to slander
not to pay attention or think that
not to run away
one cannot complain!
don’t feed
not to get carried away or lose one’s temper
not to praise (or boast)
don’t smoke
to ask for nothing
let it go
don’t order anybody around!
you might not make it
not being pregnant
don’t lose, don’t tinker, don’t cling, don’t dream
don’t take me wrong, just don’t
don’t just stand there
stop grumbling
this time it’s not so
not to damage puddles
stop staring at somebody’s accident
don’t batter down even if opened
don’t play back!
don’t pay contributions
don’t lie in wait, don’t bop, don’t carve, don’t do or make…
suspect a trick
keep the distance
get ahead of progress
respect your access
not to say „bigger half”, halves always tend to be equal
Pay attention or pay the price – safe drive!
don’t fake ratings
don’t press all the buttons
wicked silence, nightly drought
camps – Jewish ones
uprising – Warsaw one
sweet-smelling – Poland
on fire – armpit
Constitution… aftermath square
hangover after… –
in protest to defend
a hand on the womb
the latest news… in the house of stinking old age

…not to step on animals, not to tease the grass
the grass keeps on existing, the existence gets grassy.
