  11573.     

Putting All Creativity In Cessation.

words become
monotonous when
oft repeated without
any sense, this
vain repetition
is filling the
space of
thought without
rhythmic dissonance

upon uniformity
sleep comes victorious
putting all
creativity
in cessation.

  11574.     

Putting All The Eggs In One Basket

Every time I leave
Mother always reminds me
This: do not put all your eggs
In one basket,

Because when I fall
All the eggs will break and I will be left with

Nothing.

Even a nincompoop understands that.

Oh mama! I do not have those many eggs
And she does not have any basket,
We sure both, have nothing to lose.
Thanks for the reminder, anyway.

  11575.     

Putting It On Record For Now...

there is this lady-judge
who had two talented and intelligent sons
with leadership qualities

she loved them so much
her husband is a lawyer who defended the poor
and the oppressed

they live on top of a hill away from the rest
they live a very private life
and mind their own affairs

her sons believed in an ideology of liberating the poor from their chains
left her home and fled to the mountains
the military searched them
and they vanished

there were many things that were rumored
one body was found beside a river ridden with bullets
rotten and worms were consuming each wound
another body was later found on the other side of the mountain
under the forest trees with a face that is severely disfigured

they speculated that they were the bodies of her two sons
missing for years and now thought of dead

the lady judge is strong
we do not speak about it
if she were weaker she would have gone insane
her husband got sick
and found no meaning in lawyering for the masses anymore

i must remember this
and write about it
because no one has done it

this i put on record
we did nothing to appease her
we did nothing to
put into the hands of the law those culprits
those were the harsh times

we only prayed
we only offered flowers
we only left towards our own respective homes

  11576.     

Puust Ja Punaseks Ette Tegema

you cut a tree
and make the wood

you take the wood
and paint it red

my dear friend
let us filter the river
let us make things clear

Selge nagu seebivesi
as clear as soapy water!
