Eeva Kilpi, “Autumn”

Kuokkala Bridge, Ainolanranta, Jyväskylä, September 2, 2016

Nyt pyykkiin viime kesän spermat.
Vähäiset mutta kuitenkin.
Eivät mahtuneet kaikki minuun.
Ja talvi on pitkä.

Now the last of summer’s sperm goes into the wash.
A little, but still.
It’s a pity.
It didn’t all fit into me.
And winter is long.
