A Hundred Years from Now

Translated by Misha Delibash

by Alex Galper

A HUNDRED YEARS from now
Some inquisitive offspring
Will want to visit
The home where I lived and worked.
But he'll be met at the door by a
Chinese man
(99% of the world's future population)
Who won't know
What is a Jew.
Or by a Martian man-eating centipede
Who'll wonder
What poets are
And which garnish they go well with.
