Carnation,orchid ,daffodil and rose.
Their complex petals form a living shield
Yet bees with much striped force shall make them yield
Appearances,both natural and contrived,
Mixed with the wiles of human nature thrive.
And bite its flesh,with teeth we have to bare
.We too deceive the innocent who pass
Not seeing watchers hid behind the glass.
The windows break,the deep earth quakes;
Seized is the maiden , he her virtue takes.
Beneath the surface, force and fierceness thrive.
What fearsome, burning God enjoys our lives?

On this June day, he went away,
That was some years ago
Each dawn was like torture,
The anguish. the slaughter
No connection with anyone near
He gave a last smile,I did not cry,
My heart took the weight of the blow
The time goes so slowly,
We can’t control it
Stunned by the sorrow,the flow
How will you manage, he whispered,
Will you be able to steer?
I could not think past it,
His death would be drastic
My aim was to help him let go
Yet time also races,
We must not waste it
We’re here for a short time, who knows?
One day runs to the next day
My heart aches so violently
I hold it here gently
Why oh love why aren’t you here?
I called after three weeks
I can’t go on like this
Won’t you come back,why’d ye go?
I had no answer, the demons entranced me
They tightened me up with their gears
Like the rack and the flaying
Skin torn and bleeding
Yet we’re not meant to let feeling show
A man wipes away tears from another man’s eyes
I am fortunate
If I can find two gloves now
One left and one right
The other problem
My hands are misshapen too
Ladies’ gloves might not fit me.
I can be a man
If I decide I want to be
There! I wear your gloves now.
But I prefer scarves
Made for women, with flowers
My taste is quite good
I know I like your image
You stand on the bridge in Prague
In Wenceslaus Square
The orchestra played Ma Vlast
Children’s coloured drawings are
Butterflies for God
He died too with them
So we have no floor to stand on
I forgot I am.
I was lost somewhere other
How I stand on air!
