Farmer (poem, ash on dead tree)
Tea, or coffee, with which should the day be started? Which one contains more caffeine?! I saw two small boys in my dream, one older than the other one. I waved to the tractors passing by the house. Hello farmer! I took a walk, a bit to the right, a bit to the left. Didn’t find anything, wasn’t after anything either. I was, I wasn’t aware of my dreams. I collected woods for the fire. Entered home with the right foot, someone once said it’d bring good luck. I hear different sounds from the walls and the ceiling. Each time, some different sounds. Nobody lives here but me. Home speaks to you, only, in a different language. After a few phone calls, I realized I’m forgetting my mother tongue. The life bitter than the poison will too pass, once again, life would be sugar. Sugar is dangerous for health.
