ich denke an meiner knie, 2022
I went around everywhere, across the towns with burgerking, towns with burgherkilling, across the autobahn 1, across service areas with free urinating, 70 cents or a voucher worth just 50 cents, wash hands with warm water, soap dispensers that make big bubbles. across kid-friendly playgrounds, sandpits with no needles.
I rode in subway all lines with poemless newspaper sales: I am pleased with each spend.
I drag shoe soles on every pavement, hug my knee, if you can’t find anyone you can hug yourself.
I have everything in my cart, little dreams, big dreams, weaving, gardening dreaming, poems, kayal, dictionary.
I can sew your little dreams together so that they become big dreams.
oh, pole star shows me the route i should go, my dog wants to go everywhere.
I’m starving, is there a soup kitchen near here.
I can’t sell myself well.
I think on my knee without thinking on my every step.
I can cut your hair; I can treat roots and serve black tea with cardamom at the same time.
ice blocks melt 25 meters deep I had frozen my migraine attacks there.
I have a flower for migraine that doesn’t contain histamine, as you know.
I want to go to Mexico, but I don’t know how.
it is not picturesque to let a sun drown on the horizon.
carry plant soil from a to z very cheap, collect beer bottles, porcelain vases, butterflies, tasty chunkenwings from the five-star restaurant near tauben strasse berlin center, advise artists suffering from chicken eyes, who steal candy.
I think on my knee, have no roof over my head, but a sky so beautiful I could cry.
