on love

I can see her yellow boots
just as I get out of the bathroom.
Few more steps,
and I see her,
with her legs tangled between
the sheets
reading that arsetown’s poetry,
falling more in love with his
words
than with his personality.
I get jealous at times
(but hold it back) .
I always smile
and kiss the top of her head.

Ode to drinks, lovers & paradise

– a Bukowski reinterpretation –

Oh, my dear Jager,
I’m mentally making love
to your taste
spicy, spicy,
threatening taste.

But, alas I’m dreaming
about you
touching my lips
like no lover can do.

Oh, my beloved Redd’s
how I wish you were
naked
strolling in front
of
the curtained window
so our
neighbors could only see
our shapes
combining
the same way
your lips touch the cigarette.

Oh how I wish
I could
drink you…
how I wish
you weren’t…

Poison.
And so far away.

and that’s why we should stop seeing each other

this

 

„i believe i am sad”
i told him, pouring my rose wine in my
everything but fancy glass.
he lit up his cigarette,
puffing some of the smoke in the air.
„why?”
my body ached when his lips moved.
i could feel a tremble in my chest.
and my stomach.
i could have said
<because of you>
i should, actually.
instead, i just smiled
with my left part
„not in <slitting my veins> kind of sad
but in the <i just want to stop living for a while> sad.”

he came closer, and touched my shoulder.
„but why?”
„because i lost myself somewhere.
out there.
between books and music and Bukowski’s poetry.
i have no passion, no desire to live,
to go on.
i just …i just need to stop this.”
and i did a grand gesture with my hand, including him
in the movement.
„i have to stop whatever i am feeling”.

he arched his brow.
„and what are you feeling?”
it was such a plain question,
it was something my therapist would ask,
after i emptied his box of kleenex,
but not because i would have cried;
but because i had to do something with my hands.

„feeling?
oh, yes.
something that consumes me.
entirely.
i am devoured by a being higher than me.
i don’t know what.
i would say i am numb, but that would be a lie.”

„are you feeling something related to me?
to us?”

i grinned.
he stopped smoking.
he started touching his beard
in a compulsive manner.

„maybe.”
i took a good gulp
of that rose wine.
„or maybe not.”
i smiled.
„it’s irrelevant, really”
