Scary House

This house will creep on you and it’s not going to be nice. Beware.

The third poem in the series I started writing in November.

fauxx Series, January/November 2015

An experiment with Camera RAW, where I created a preset to make photos taken in 2015 look very 1980s. Sort of inspired by an acquaintance who constantly used the phrase “socialist paradise”.

Plank

Sitting on the patio
Playing the Mouse Game
They take away our plank
Ask me about this
In twenty-five years’ time
I won’t draw a blank
Mi-mi baby slaps me
Upside my face
And wheelchair girl

But I can play along
Twins with bellies
A dusty roundabout
Pretty little dawn
Basketball games
Big, shiny kitchen
Never seen a prawn

Zaista nije tako,

Nikad neće biti tako.

Ostajem bez vazduha,
jer tako se ljudi dave.
Postajem plava u licu,
jer tako se ljudi dave
i nema drugog načina.
Onda sam se prenula iz sna
i vratila svojoj stvarnosti:
zaključani u podzemnom svetu
dok ne postanemo prašina Read on
