I talk to my fluids.

Where should I hide?

I am a coffin of yearnings!?


I am Otherness!

No more

No less



I laugh with silence

Rhapsody of impulses.


I grip the pen between my teeth!

I break bones of bans!




I'm a name in parentheses!

I lie hunched over

        in space.


I'm Margina!


         a striking fugitive,

Barefoot homeless,

       a Ruthless shameless human,

          Unauthorized nobleman.


I am a Passer!


            an anchor traveler!



I'm fed with few sundries:

photo camera, chewing gums,

ink and notebook.

Red hat

and red ballet shoes,

pocket full of memories,

photo of the park,

souvenir of Fishing Bastion

and Matija Korvin's church.


tight jeans and jacket

of red cashmere.


I'm fed with desires:


new streets,

scroll wheels,

a new layer





I am a box of secrets!

Roll me

and enriched

your soul

with memories!
