THE GREEN VOICE
bambus # 81 - anis 19.05.00

there is nothing - in my head - it's as empty - as a bottle -- i came to this world - with good intentions - there was nothing - in the mountains - and nothing - in the cities - it was mantled - in flesh and blood - my camera - understood the scene - but i - did not -- i am the green voice - i speak to you - through a passage - from the other side - of the time window - into my tea cup i speak - speaking - to the people - at the boat - through emptiness - the voice is rolling - in gentle waves - onto hot shores - cooling - bringing soft dreams - from the other side - of the stargate -- like a journalist on vacation - i walk among thee - the camera smiling - on my belly - she really understands - she really bridges - between us - someone - you can trust - someone - you can lean on - and tell - your troubles to -- there is nothing - no motion - you would not think that - when you see - the pictures - they feel so close - you would think - you are in the middle of - something burning - and you think - it exists - because the camera - saw it - but it does not really - exist - in that way - it is - different - you should rather - see it - with your own eyes - without - a translating machine - the machine - feels different feelings - you are not - a machine - when i leave you - you will cry - because - you are not - the machine -- the green voice - is not afraid - it is talking - in a different language - there are many - languages - everybody has one -- often - i sat - in the desert - listening - to the dead - stroking the sand - and keeping my eyes down - there is not even solitude - in the desert - it is a city - with no houses - and no water - i can miss you there - just as well - it makes - no difference - home is - where the heart is -- the voice - does not speak - about maybes - or mustbes - it speaks - from the other side - through the passage - in a dream - of perfect white - where a child is playing merrily - in the crammed garden - crushing the fruits - and shooting arrows - like an angel in love - with no regret -- on omega five - i sit - drinking water - and go out to explore - looking for signs - and wonders - in a gold rush fever - where everything is green - like flowers undone - as if - paper was reinvented - bringing space - for homeless thoughts - they break - like breaking news - into the sky -- i have survived - mischief and pain - and have not forgotten - all the colors - you sent me - it is like - coming back - in a new dress - with a new voice - of significant green - melting - the sun - and the sea - the warm - and the blue - hoping - for better times - in direct action - without violence - under the unmentioned - yoke -- my friend - i know that you - have a tale to tell - i have experienced - a lot of it - the camera - takes pictures - of the known land - of the already seen - the already grown - they talk - to me - and to you - in our respective - castles - and each key - confirms the prison -- the stargate - the time window - is to be found - inside - and inside only - the distance - is one - of manners - unmeasured - uncatalogued - a blank map - and a green journalist - on vacation - speaking - about little cupids - tulips - and true lips - missing - the meadows - and the flower women - who have departed - long ago -- coming back - into a land - of silence and woe - back - after having - absorbed thee - and chewed -- sitting here - in my umbrella - drinking water - and eating bread - until i am satisfied - exploring - the green voice - which reaches through the passage - into inhabited beds - tickling their toes
