INSIDE WITH A CHEAP PRICE TAG
nights
predictable nights
a cycle of time
lost and in a second to be
we count on a trivial item
– nail varnish
to stifle a routine
change it into something
meaningful

the ordinary
at night is amplified
turns
small talk into discussion
hopes into promises
we know we won’t keep

some lampshade slouches in worry
its rough-and-ready character murders
our ego while asleep
in times
when everything insightful
was already said and done
we are left with
a cheap happy ever after
it could be a curse or a favor
it could switch us off completely, too
(14th June – 22nd September 2016)
