Streets
Loves that ended long ago:
Sometimes you meet them in the street
sometimes you meet them in dreams.
when you meet them in the street,
they resemble dreams
when you meet them in dreams,
they resemble streets
streets where half the houses are empty
because you don’t remember whose faces
appear in the darkness behind the windows.

translated from the Danish by the author and Alexander Taylor
