marius ianus

He is a Romanian poet I have been recently reading, here is an extract from "to the reader":

and when you want to hang yourself
because the others fail to know you anymore
think of me
I always have time for you
I stay here rooted in words

Marius Ianus

This is taken from No Longer Poetry - New Romanian Poetry, edited and translated by David Morley and Leonard-Daniel Aldea (Coventry: Heaventree, 2007). This and other poems by Ianus are available in English at this link.
