Videoclip. Amb fragments de Cat in an Empty Apartment de Wisława Szymborska, (traducció de Stanisław Barańczak i Clare Cavanagh).

Die—you can’t do that to a cat.
Since what can a cat do
in an empty apartment?
Climb the walls?
Rub up against the furniture?
Nothing seems different here
but nothing is the same.
Nothing’s been moved
but there’s more space.
And at nighttime no lamps are lit.

[…]

Something doesn’t start
at its usual time.
Something doesn’t happen
as it should.
Someone was always, always here,

[…]

Just wait till he turns up,
just let him show his face.
Will he ever get a lesson
on what not to do to a cat.
Sidle toward him
as if unwilling
and ever so slow
on visibly offended paws,
and no leaps or squeals at least to start.
