They wave to us, standing on the pavement,
His striped shirt, mustache and her long skirt,
The smiles we grew to love and remember
Will keep me warm come frosty November.
They put up with all my parents’ eccentricities,
They put up with my being the way I really am
The dense tree foliage, so warm and tender
Will keep me warm Read on

Stabs in Eclipse

They hurt you from here,
They hurt you from there,
Somebody stabs your heart.
When you stumble in the dark,
And only see a spark,
You think it’s the Great Generator.
W…what was that?
They hurt me from here,
They hurt me from there
Somebody stabs my heart.
When I stumble in the dark,
And don’t even see a spark,
I think it’s going to cure me.

I’d left you for a girl
But I will be back
Just like you were each time
I’ve known her for so long
Ever since I was a child
I’ve been without her
Like with and without you
These days, I dream of her
And you are nowhere to be
Found in any of those dreams
She’s seen so much death
That you wouldn’t believe her

Maze of Pipes / Lavirint cevi

Maze of Pipes
A waterfall baby,
A dream from the past,
Fading away to that old year.
I won’t forgive,
As there’s nothing to forgive,
I might be breathing water,
But I’m not water-driven.
Nothing more than a maze of pipes,
Squeaky-clean on the outside
With rust bleeding in them.
That’s what he was,
Some weak lines.
That’s the only thing he can be,
A maze of pipes.

The Masterdream

Cutting the fight?
Killing the light!
Knitting the night.
Flicking through,
Browsing through,
Assorted clips of the Masterdream.
Pink pegs?!
From a walking-talking picture book.
Black nails?
From a crawling distillery.
I’ll clip them the way they should be,
Where they should remain,
I’ll line them on a rope,
Hang them dry and preserve them,
Arrange them,
By correct date and time.
Always saying
I will not
Rewind them again,
But I do.
You breathe Read on

The World

This is a man/woman world,
So, what are you doing here?
Who sent you,
And how dare you fly on your own,
With a full pair of wings?
This is a somebody/somebody world,
So what are you doing here?
Did man/woman ones send you
And how dare you think it doesn’t matter
When it means everything?
– February 14th and November 15th, 2015

Nothing to do Read on


The strangest stamp in one’s passport.
The strangest page in the other’s diary.
Golden crops none of them will harvest.
Horizon of the most sinister slavery.
There goes your precious slave to the system.
They said it wasn’t that way and they won’t listen.
Nothing changed
That very day.
Nothing changed,
Except for it all
“Poor little yous and your poor little wars!”
Is all they Read on


Wake me up with buzzing flies
Have me smile until the day dies
I have been numb all these years
And I really, really need to laugh.
I missed you so much
I just could not face you
When I was bitter and sad
When I was broken and bad
When I had no other dreams left.
Rock me to sleep in your arms

That Time You Could Not Be

Remember that time you could not walk?
Remember that time you could not see?
I think of them fondly in some way.
Remember that time with my friend at KFC?
Remember that time you didn’t know.
I wish for more of those, every day.
The one I don’t want to think of
Is that time you could not be,
That time you could Read on

I Used to Think It Was the Moon

Floating in the seams of her dark blue robe.
Small, she is so much bigger on the inside.
When I dive far below, she’ll bring me up,
And I am aware I should no longer hide.
A rekindled thread of those who refused to die.
A little boost for the ones with no wings to fly.
And I used to think Read on
