2017-32


I light
a cigar

                      just before
                      awakening

and the swifts

                      jellyfish
                      are born

return

                     in my eyes





jeg tænder
en cigar

                        lige før
                        jeg vågner

og mursejlerne

                       fødes vandmænd

vender hjem

                       i mine øjne

a man
goes into the wilderness
”alone”

                                       face it

the ” ”
means

                                      we are

he's got
a tv crew
tagging
along

                                       space creatures









en mand
går ud i vildmarken
”alene”

                                       se det i øjnene

” ”
betyder

                                       vi er

at han har
et tv hold
med sig

                                      rumvæsner

put a finger
on it
(and own it?)

                                  hush the birds

the now
present

                                 then you can almost hear

in a fragment of a photo
of Caravaggio’s
Crucifixion of St. Peter

                                the cloud roof click
                                into place










sæt en finger
på det
(og tag ejerskab?)

                               tys på fuglene

nuet
til stede

                               og du kan næsten høre

i et fragment af et foto
af Caravaggios
St. Peters Korsfæstelse

                               skytaget klikke på plads

of course
they’ve come

                        the entelechy
                        of Caravanserai

w/o making
making
a fuzz

                       is that where
                       the groove

swifts
swallows
lilacs

                       begins?









selvfølgelig
er de kommet

                       Caravanserai’s
                       enteleki

uden stort
ståhej

                       er det dér
                       rillen

mursejlere
svaler
syrener

                      begynder?

if I had
a cause
to fight for

                        in The Temple of the Giant Jaguar

would
the birch tree

                        a spider unaware

follow me?

                        of Google







hvis jeg havde
en sag
at kæmpe for

                         i Den Store Jaguars Tempel

ville
birketræet

                         en edderkop
                         der ikke ved

følge mig?

                         hvad Google er

for reasons
I won’t bother
to explore

                            sea fog

the sound
of whiskers
on a drum
                            I could form a friend

is that
of an endless
Sunday rain

                             from that

in a provincial
town smelling
of fish









af grunde
jeg ikke orker
undersøge

                             havgus

er lyden
af whiskers
på en tromme

                             jeg ku’ forme en ven

lyden
af en endeløs
søndagsregn

                             af den

i en provinsby
der lugter
af fisk

sometimes there’s a language

                                          Easter lilies in the gardens

sometimes
sea fog takes over

                                          Easter lilies on my table
                                          just to remind me

sometimes
it doesn’t
make a difference

                                         I live
                                         on
                                         Earth









nogle gange er der et sprog

                                         påskeliljer i haverne

nogle gange
ta’r havgusen over

                                         påskeliljer på mit bord
                                         bare for at minde mig om

nogle gange
gør det ikke
nogen forskel

                                         at jeg lever
                                         på
                                         Jorden

2017-25 parallel cherita


we listened and listened

                                          no- and everywhere to go

with the collective ears of mankind
just to discover

                                           always beginning and ending
                                           with sore feet

that all sounds
of the previous universe combined
(also) was: sigh!

                                           and the new
                                           I see
                                           is old









vi lyttede og lyttede

                                          ingen og alle steder at gå hen

med menneskehedens samlede ører
blot for at opdage

                                         altid begyndende og endende
                                         med ømme fødder

at alle lyde
fra det forrige univers samlet
(også) var: suk!

                                         og det nye
                                         jeg ser
                                         er gammelt

that’s what we do

                                          it’s where I left it

we conjure up nightmares
to pass the time

                                         the wheeled trunk
                                         full of laundry

shortly the bombardment
of birch pollen
will begin

                                         there’s no deeper
                                         meaning
                                         in that










det’ det vi gør

                                     den er hvor jeg efterlod den

fremmaner mareridt
for at fordrive tiden

                                     kufferten med hjul
                                     fuld af vasketøj

snart vil bombardementet
med birkepollen
begynde

                                    der er ingen dybere
                                    mening
                                    i dét
