“Brown suit case in the corner: 
Where have you been? 
Circle around the terminal.
Hide what’s within.

What to take when I move from this place, 
and what to leave behind?”

(K. More in Suitcase)

A chair in snow is always sad


“… a chair is shaped for just one thing

to hold 
a soul its quick and few bendable 
hours

perhaps a king 

not to hold snow 
not to hold flowers”

The mirror tells me that I am fair!

"Der Spiegel sagt mir: ich bin schön!
Ihr sagt: zu altern sei auch mein Geschick.
Vor Gott muß alles ewig stehn,
In mir liebt ihn für diesen Augenblick."

(G.W. von Goethe in Suleika)

A goalkeeper’s memorial


“I played goalkeeper.
I coached high school soccer teams: 
I lost interest.”

Blue and that after drinking just one can of beer

“One little beer can be alright, 
One big black beer, or maybe a lite.
Two beers down you begin to glow, 
And you’ll be singing, before you know.”

(J. Olivarez in Drinking beer)
