DPF / Aspenström

For undecipherable lilacs, from The Star by My Head.

from You Have to Practice Reality / by Werner Aspenström, translated by Malena Mörling and Jonas Ellerström

When your sister comes to visit
you often talk of lilacs
as if lilacs were an extinct species
and did not bloom new each June
in halls of mild honey and the songs of thrushes.
