CLOUDS IN THE HEADS
bamboo # 32 - anis 14.02.00 - for the world and antonia


sometimes when you have - clouds in your head - when you wear a frown - and don't want - to leave your house - for a couple of days - when your friends - are far - when your future - is far - when everything - is far - then think of me -- when the weather - seems unreal - and the clocks - dipped in honey - when the heaviness of your sword - feels warm and good - in your hand - then i see you -- and when the anger - arises inside of you - the holy anger - when your eyes - send lightnings - into the night - when they send lightnings every night - into the land of dreams - and you cannot - rest still - anymore - then i stand behind you - bringing you comfort -- and when the day arrives - and you walk out the door - the day - when you - show them - your eyes - when you will show them - unminced - when you say no - when finally you will say no - then - i will say yes to you - then i will be close - to you - then - yours will be - my soul -- the clouds - they move - like cotton - through the light blue sky - mysterious script - for all to see - the clouds -- they turn dark grey - sometimes - they streak - to the ground - to you - to the place - where you are - sometimes - you let them in - in your head - and darker gets - your head - you go - to your friend - and behind your forehead - the hesitating clouds - the dark clouds - when they entered your head - you asked: - will there be - rain? will - there be rain? - will the night - come - over us - like a wild animal? - there i was far - from you -- often we had talked - between us the candle - often - you have told me - about beautiful things - you projected - colored woods - onto the wall - like a photograph - you told me - about clear streams - and remote planets - yet i remained - the one - who saw them -- the clouds carry me - they are of - perfect white - every day - there are also - the grey clouds - they are streaking - through the heads - and increasing - there are also - the white clouds - they enclose everything - they dissolve -like sugar cotton - on the tongues - of children - tidy - like the sky - after long contemplation -- free - for the substantial things - i want to be - because i want to be there - when you come to me - wearing an amulet - of copper - on your forehead - when you say: - my heart - is full of gratefulness - for every new day - that is granted to me - when you say: - today i am no slave - no more - when you say: - today i am royal -- then i want to be - there for you - and treat you - like a king - and treat you - like a queen -- look in the sky - in fear - and soon there will be - grey clouds - have another look - and speak your wishes into it - so white - they will be - like the most beautiful perl - in the ocean - a wish - so fine - like the perl - in the ocean -- because when you - arise - from your chair - and mount into your boots - when you leave the house - and loudly release - a shout - so that the streets shiver - when your hand - rests on a shoulder - and a hand is - on your shoulder - when you realize - the mistresses - and the masters - when you then say no - to them - and no to slavery - the moment - when your eyes are proud - and your heart - without violence - so close i will be - to you - that you will cry - so close will you be - that i lay my heart - for you - like i lay a table - for your meal - i will regard my life as small - when you do it - when you stand up - and say no - then i will say yes - and you will also - say yes - and there will be - no more - grey clouds
