Kjell Espmark: 'Spökhästen i Hiroshima'


The ghost horse in Hiroshima

I have seen with my own eyes

the one that effortlessly crosses the border

between the realms of death and life.

When it tossed its head

sparklings and glitterings flew from its mane.

But what scared me most was its neighing.

As if it contained the pain of all history.
