If there is one moment in time, 
I could have chosen
to live my youth, it would be the
time of Nick Drake. My love
for you would glide towards
the world, like a cloud on a
red sky. I would be a boy
with a guitar and a burning
heart. You, a flower girl with
justice in your repertoire, 
wearing a headband. Our
love would be a meta-love.

This holocaust
of the tangible and unfathomable life
when the dusky nights
that prevail in early winter
entrust their dreams
to dawn…

     In the land of the flightless birds lives the water girl.

     There dwells a friend of mine who no longer draws
     breath

     In the land of the flightless birds rests the pondered
     experience.

     It takes me all that I have not to forget
     to breathe. In the land of memories is eternal darkness.

     The universe expands, the lived experience heralds
     absolute zero.

     The only thing that draws it together and binds us
     with trusty bonds is love.
