  13597.     

The Plain Citizen Of The Republic

the government for sure
cannot survive without you plain citizen

you are taxed
that is the most certain thing that happens in your life
as plain citizen
of this republic

the property that you own
is subject to confiscation

from womb to tomb
you, plain citizen is bound with a lot of other
responsibilities

you make them rich
and give them power
you let them stay for more
than expected and they all laugh
like mad men

you do not make a stir
on the fold
the law chases you just in case
and the prison cell is crowded

so plain citizen of the republic
be good
lick them
as they suck you
pamper them
as they spare you

plain citizen you sell your right to be king
in this republic
now you sit there
and you will be next!

The Plane

when it starts to fly it is being met by this rain.

there is this strong wind ahead of us and some dark clouds
the stewardess announces said state and we are 30,000 feet
above the mountains

yes, these are the bumpy skyways.
i close my eyes. i think of you, the house, the garden, the room,
and the two dogs you are caring.

(will we crash? will this plane fall to the ground? shall we die in an instant?)

i close my eyes.
then the plane steadies. i open my eyes.

there are clear clouds. below is a wide expanse of the blue sea.
i look at the wings of the plane.

and then its wheels touch the ground.
the door opens.

it is another world for me.
i feel the importance of the ground. Its glory. Its reign now.

The Platter

You know, death doesn’t exist, he said to her.
I know, yes, now that I’m dead, she answered.
Your two shirts are ironed, in the drawer.
The only thing I’m missing is the platter.

  13600.     

The Pleas Of Participation

to be brief will mean
a little bit of choosing silence
rather than hush
or breathe

to be silent in the rhythm of
the breathing nostrils
to be still like a post
with a light on along the sidewalk
of the night of the city

to be nothing but a tree
to be not able to go with the wings of the wind
to be nothing but a rock
to be not able to splash with the water
to be a nail stuck inside the force of wood
to be a watcher of the birds
to be an ear merely hearing what sounds arrive

how can this be? when i have a set of feet
and hands
how can this be when my mind keeps on
beaming with thoughts?

only if i allow it
only if i allow it

shall i? shall i love you and kiss you? shall i make love with you?
shall i be the bed? the cover? and the window?

allow me to be a part of your life
allow me

will you?
