Spoken word version of Puppy, Candy, Kitty

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2016. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

Yes, I am trying to be an active poet, next to being an active designer and an amateur photographer. The last thing is going to result in four photographs being published, the second is what brings Pepsi Max and instant cheesy macaroni to table (I do like fine foods, just kiddin'), the first is what I can do at any time, anywhere, anyhow.

A couple of days ago, I applied to participate in Pesničenje, which is a monthly/bi-monthly poetry reading/recitating event here in Beograd, sometimes it's held in other places in Serbia, it even made to London and Riga. Then I realised that I participated in no public reading of anything for the last 14 years. In March 1993 I came fourth in a municipality-wide poetry reading at the age of ten, reciting a p..m by Jovan Jovanović Zmaj, about a sly cat called Marko, which wasn't enough to advance to the city-wide reading. In June 1996, I was second in a similar event, yet for original poetry. For New Year 2010, I presented the visitors of my website with a New Year greeting, amongst other things to see their reaction at my English and my Italian. I repeated this when I was pulling a competition winner out of a hat. Nobody really objected, which means it isn't that bad.

I recorded p..ms in my own room with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 camera, reading them from the computer screen, in .mts format, then converted them to .mp3. If I were a musician (end of the world scenario right there O_o), these would probably be classified as demos. Since I'm a poet, I assume I'll call them tryouts.

I'm starting with one of my most unusual pieces ever, perhaps because one certain Anitka from Levice/London once wanted to hear it spoken, which is probably what inspired me to do this. I owe it to her literally. Thank you, Anitka.

The p..m is called Kuca, 'bona, maca or, in English, Puppy, Candy, Kitty. It was written on the 18th of January 2010, a couple of days before my ultimate something. It's full of nonsense, hillbilly, illegal immigrant-like grammatical errors. The narrator appears to be an idiot, telling the other person how they don't appreciate puppies, candies and kitties...yet each time they're quick to explain themselves and describe how they like the other person, even with the annoyance that these things bring. In the meantime, they're mumbling the names of all three annoyances to themselves. In the end, the narrator's pretty clear with the statement - puppy, kitty and even candy are OK, because they're not changing their love to the person they're addressing this to. However, they still sound like a stupid idiot, which is why the p..m ends with them wondering who they actually are.

What series does Puppy, Candy, Kitty belong to? Probably Forever Nine, though it existed during a 15-month period that's hard to explain because in some other story it lasted less than a day.

I also feel the need to note that this p..m was available on the second incarnation of this website, the one that existed between January and April 2009. And it had more comments than anything else on the blog, strangely enough. Either way, I'm reposting it.

Maca grize kad maca ljuta,
maca uzme, maca laže, maca te menja,
maca te pređe, maca jela hrana za maca,
ja mislim nijedna ti maca ne bi dobra.

Maca žuta, maca riđa, maca tamna,
maca te zeki, jedno maca mene mrzi,
kad maca ne dobra, kažeš: "Neću više maca!"
I danima ti tužan tužan šmrk šmrk tužan.

    I find it creepy, maybe because you read them too well. 😉

    I really like this. It's simply written, yet I get the feel that there is a much deeper meaning than the simplicity of the words. Words should never overwhelm and I like the way you made this flow and kept the reader following right along.

    The reading was also very well done. You put a lot of passion and emotion into it. Even the non-English version gave me that sense of passion though I didn't understand it.

    🙂 Nicely done! Thanks for sharing.
