Hard Time Poesy

30. Jan. 1996


Let us face this,
I do not love you,
I…
I…
I love her,
That romantic heroine
That you can not be,
I love that woman
Who smokes, drinks, writes, paints
And dances,
I love that fearless child
Inside that great sacred woman
Who is not afraid to die,
But she knows that she will.

Gets Paid to Dream

22. Jan. 1996

...gets paid to dream

Girl-woman,
You have got man
In your heart
Crushing him so that
You think he cannot get out.

Oh little girl constricts
With her sublime fists
The ignorant, poor and wretched –
“Hail the Queen!
Now off with her head!” –
Cake is not good,
After all.

And man, guy-dude,
Buys a telescope
And he gets paid to dream –
“She is a woman, oh well.”
