Månedens digt / Poem of the Month

Smil!

Smil!
Når skyerne trækker sammen før stormen,
Smil, selvom hoften knager og livmoren falder, åh smil
så rynkerne flettes og fingrene glattes.
Du har fået tid, masser af tid
Og aldrig før haft så travlt.
Børnebørn, hvis forældre bliver skilt
Så dit hjerte brister. Smil
Mens det hagler ned over familien med gensidige beskyldninger
Og din mand har mæslinger
Mens den mindste skal opereres for prostata. Smil
mod den endeløse himmel,
Der hverken kender start eller slut,
Herfra og dertil, over, ved siden eller under. Smil. Himlen bliver hvor den er.
Lidt endnu. Smil.

Amazing Phrase

Amazing Phrase
In all its might
Leading me lopsided across broken glass and blood
through the pin of a pen, black and blue.
Just this small future, this life.
Amazing Word
Just out of sight
Giving me dreams like colors to a blind,
Through the silk of a thread out of ink,
Trickling, trimming the Horrible and the Wonderful,
Some life. This life.
Amazing Sound
Within my flight
The scribbling and scrabbling across walls and tablecloths,
Stains of soft rain on grass, blots on white sheets,
Expecting my reply.
Just this. Just this
Amazing Gaze.
