what is lost with age, in addition to time?

missing chance

i turned a corner and the current caught me

my life goes from monday to monday
without other days or delays
meanwhile so many people without teeth
no hair to comb, no eye to see
so much old and dormant misery

in the movies, in the theater, on TV –
the people are dressed as they should be
but i – when i’m alone i forget to sleep
i forget bathing and the sun, forget to eat
i become a monster wrapped in itself
a biting thing that does not even feel
with short salaries and large debts – debts, peoplee!

things are hot around here
a lot of particles fluttering in the air
every friction producing pain
while i drink brandy

i’m being depressed under bright colours – i, pioneer
(that was before, now i’m only a pion)
painfully left over and blowing the wounds
of this insane monster of my own


(“The proton and the neutron are baryons; the electron, the muon, and the neutrino are leptons; whilst the pions are mesons.”)
