Wind Whispers


there’s a cold print inside me
a blunt ridge on a record
dust whirls around
rust grains flow in my blood
leaving the old iron works
unsold by their collectors

this song can be hardly heard
swept away by morning winds
when I wake up without wishes
feeling a taste of frozen lemon
sliced at once…
on the knife’s blade a deep stain remains

many things can’t be purchased
forgotten or interchanged
but they are aging
wasp nests gather between blinds
broken lines meet on the walls
colors blend becoming gray
neutral and indifferent

Pink


Words were speeding up while she spoke.
– That’s exactly what happened
I was wearing light mauve shoes
hardly found on the black market
but even those were slipping on asphalt
my stockings were almost pink
a gift from grandma’s sister
she enjoyed seeing me wearing pink
and him… he bowed accidentally near my chair
that chair had no back
I was sitting in my stiff blue jeans skirt
too tight on my waist
and he passed his fingers through his hair
I was wondering why he gazed into nowhere
or into my eyes
walls were thin and I heard an unknown melody
I never met the neighbors there
and him… he calmed down the dog
a little dog was barking furiously
and he was smiling
– What are you saying girl?!

That’s exactly what happened
we were talking about happiness
draperies were drawn
and the light had a tinge of pink.
