90. you have an egg. he asked a question.


answered it himself. talked of differing

lines, marks and silences.


we usually have what we need, may be

a case of looking.


you have an egg.


along the wind comes a feeling

of change.


there is an egg.

tempo tempo,                 on & on,

repeating. like

jesu’s blood never failed me yet

or nyman, backwards.

tempo tempo all the time deleting

any form of rhyme, loose phrasing.

tempo, tempo, as if none of it matters,

which it doesn’t.

drive the car forward, move the mind inward.

hope it will not stop.

maybe something better.

this book is tied.

the play continues,
some of the old cast, new actors oblige,
ideas on lack of addictive ways.
simple days without receptors.

singing under breath, counting, unpacking boxes,
this is the lead. hints are posted, and may you believe them graciously.

for many times will you be tested.

there were subs titles, out of focus,
we could not read the other language.
the work continues…. peptides.
