Gegensatz | a poem

milk eyes

pantyhose thighs

lullaby hair

dry eyebrows

hold me there

silhouette garden shed

follow me sand castle

blue corner led astray

ashtray girl

green glass thread box

carry me silk tie

throat song

ghost at the door rain drop

42 metres call me home

don’t want to see myself again

dangling feet child, this is death

urn walk

basement draught

he never left yellow tiles

stains be quiet now

slice of bread sober now

at war release me

don’t want to be like them
