DAILY The thought sees itself sprouting on a different storey appearing from the stairwell in the floor as if a cat’s claw scratched itself its prey sunlight shades the blue of the chair with branches and petals fires up the stove in a single breath I get up this morning to go cycling after a shower of sandwiches while getting off the commuters’ crowd prevents the train from leaving the clock moves one step ahead in the monthly transfer there’s an entire house the electricity links rooms like water in a shock vegetables from the supermarket lie as if they had never grown in the pushcart come closer together as a foretaste to the stomach at a table prevents the falling of elbows for example and hands meeting things people table of trees sawn apart laid together bed slept together the dreams fly like a ladybird or a mare through closed eyelids a car with wings needs water or a carrot or a hot dog does not fly on kerosene with thoughts I close the door with a key rose

Lucky charm, traces
Family Tree
Then I learned (0-38 years old)
Dreams 1989

Time curved
Silver dew

Now is a rose
Sun same room
Water of poems

Curved space
