Another World Of Love


What's that noise again?

You slide into my bed

with your reptilian beauty,

hissing lustfully

I open my eyes wide

I feel your wild kiss

and your forked tongue

into my mouth

The god of earthquakes

jealous of our vibes

The foundations of the Earth are shaken

The Gospel from the shelf

it falls hard on my head

My whole body is burning

from your fever


I'm coming together with crumbs

my crystal Ego


My Two Pieces-


I am cut in two pieces

One piece of me travels

on a roaring river

with a felucca full

daffodils and shells

My other piece is missing

in an eerie night

hunched over from the weight

of burls and rocks

which she carries on her back


Waterfowl surround me incessantly

They sting with bulimia

my convulsions and snoring


Lost in between

in my two pieces

I pass out

from one era to another,

having a beautiful wife

with snaky hair in my lap


Persons On Stage


Your eyes are the color of submission

Your face is a mask of compromises

You wear the garment of cowardice

You use disguises

on your long walk around the world

In the performances of your life

you play the role of an extra

Unless you've taken over

the leading role

in setbacks and misgivings

You play minor roles every day

and the first class of humiliation

You are afraid of making a mistake

They are usually contradictory to each other

That's why you have to know them all by heart

so you don't mess up on stage

your words given by others


Ultimately your true being

it is a tragic mask

which you display in the most comical way
