  12797.     

the novel....

this has something to do with the novel that
you have been writing
the one that you started many years back
about your hero
that you regret writing

now you want to change him
his vision and what he is going to do
in the next chapters
something that he cannot do too
because of what he is known already
to the other characters
they do not expect him to do that
the twist of his character is simply
too unexpected
and they are getting apprehensive
that this novel may not have
a happy ending after all

you think about it for days
you ask and even beg him to understand
that he must fall and be humiliated
and be condemned
but he definitely disagrees and warns you
that if that is the case then
he better be killed and simply be
ended in Chapter X of the novel

you feel pity for him
you think for more days
you give it time tonight
and you decide no to kill him

the novel will not be that good
to kill him or not
that is your eventual decision

at dawn you start typing the
next chapter
you keep him alive
but the novel shall be damned
the other characters of course
shall continue adoring him
till the last chapter.

there shall be no other sequel
on such a bland and usual novel
of that happy ending
that saddest ever-after.

  12798.     

the now and then

we do not remember anymore where we come from
as we all gaze at the endless space of the night
we cannot figure out
how to return and what we once were
we do not remember anymore how hurt we were
we finally decided to stay,
here, this moment,
now.

  12799.     

The now in the noise in the ripple

It is this interest in the
now
in the
noise
In the ripple of the concrete splash
As the stone is dropped
in a running river

It is not the tomorrow or even the tonight
Of our wishes that is making me live,

In fact our wishes about another nice evening
In the garden’s candle lighted dinner
Is what makes me leave, that will be too much
Honesty for me, it is the life of my lies

That supplies blood to the veins of my existence
I do not have life since then, living has been so
Miserable, your touch is pain, your gaze is pain,

Your asking me how am I, is causing me pain,
I am not true to you, I am not yours anymore,
It is pain, it is this pain, that must decide,
To live like a coward or die once like a brave man

I am a shameless man, and you are too honest.

  12800.     

the nuclear jets

Quiet around the aquamarine park
In Clarin
I see dolphins playing
Up to the skies
The nuclear jets are roaring
Toward Iraq moving
