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)

MESSY VALENTINE
a love chill
spread around
is the only selling item
she could get for free
so sighs dramatically at stinging paper cut

in a series of moments
crammed full with intense experience
she carries a gift in a plastic bag
her fingernails press hard
into flesh of the palm
want to do something
and call it nothing
she could not keep her gaze off
of a price tag
worries spiral down the throat
lodge in her ribcage
she surprised herself by not casting
to be rescued from the heart of matter
if a plan sucks
vision his let – me – tell – you deserves nothing
which she hopes to get less anyway (14th February 2013)
