G. Apollinaire – The Emigrant from Landor Road

Inserted in each year were widowed days

Slow bloody Fridays filled with funerals

Of whites and blacks conquered by skies that rained

Whenever the devil’s wife had beaten her man

 

   Intercalées dans l’an c’étaient les journées veuves
Les vendredis sanglants et lents d’enterrements
De blancs et de tout noirs vaincus des cieux qui pleuvent
Quand la femme du diable a battu son amant

*V. van Gogh – Funeral in the Snow near the Old Tower
