  • 3 Tooth

    Near the cemetery in a yellow house lives an old woman
    If you pick a flower for her she will give you candy
    In a big house up the hill lives a man known from TV
    If you bring him a dead animal he will bury it for you
    Near the woods on a farm live two brothers
    one of them has an common name
    the other one has an indian name

  • January

    The last room
    I put my sweater on and go down to the river

  • Transport

    It is itching and burning
    There is a small window above my ear
    It’s open and it’s cold
    the lock is broken again
    My neck hurts
    What is that sound?

  • Hotdogs and Popcorn

    Today 4 hippos swam straight through my heart
    Riding an underwater wall of death in slowmotion
    around and around
    a few minutes later we had hotdogs and popcorn
    and talked about sharp fences

  • Happy Endings

    There is a white horse on the beach
    It is made of glossy plastic and has beautiful long nylon hair…
    “Excuse me, is it yours?”

  • Smoked

    There must be over 30 cats in this house
    I wonder who lived there first
    Look he comes out
    Maybe he is dangerous
    or maybe just a little drunk
    There is a dead pig in the backyard
    Later we all get to taste a piece of bacon

  • I'm Learning How to Swim

    I’m learning how to swim
    They dropped me of in the middle of the ocean
    I must learn fast before the sharks smell my blood
    I feel a little stressed out
    I think can handle it…
    I’m sinking

    I’m learning how to swim

  • Social Skills

    I’m lying still on the ground
    In the distance I hear voices
    Someone please roll me over and take the knife out of my chest
    It will only take a second

  • I'm Howling

    I’m howling
    A snake has stolen my glove
    That’s really not a nice thing to do
    now my left hand is cold and pale
    We will end up in hell for this
    I’m howling for myself

  • We Take the Bikes and Head Home

    Wednesday
    Smoking cigarettes
    in the cemetery
    Thursday
    catching eels in silence
    22 eels to be precise
    They lie in a red bucket and squirm
    it’s getting dark
    no more bait
    we take the bikes and head home
    Friday
    There is a helicopter outside my window
    I have my helmet on
