The Basketball Diaries, Norwegian Translation

Excerpt


HØST 1965
77.

En nedtegnelse funnet på en av de små lekseblokkene du får for ti cent hos Gussie's . . . jeg skrev om en LSD-opplevelse jeg hadde for en stund siden:

"Småunger kaster klinkekuler
der greinene bryter sola

opp i grasiøse spyd av lys . . .
jeg ønsker bar å være rein."

Jeg fant det helt oppsmuldra i ei gammal bukse i historietimen i morges.


From The Basketball Diaries, Penguin Edition (1987), pages 140-41.

Fall 1965

A note found on one of those little homework pads you cop for ten cents at Gussie's . . . I wrote on an experience with L.S. D. a while ago:

"Little kids shoot marbles
where the branches break the sun

into graceful shafts of light . . .
I just want to be pure."

I found it all crumbled up in these old pants in history class this morning.
