I used to love fear but now it bores me… Sunday / November 9, 2014 #SchwervonPoetry

I used to fear sleep 
but now I love it
I used to love fear
but now it bores me

Distraction is a way to be happy

Like a horse on the prairie 
Run to the music of
Your own gallop

Gal up gal up Gallup up up up

The galloping ghost 
Will appear in your waking moment 

Drive fast, 
get drunk, 
stay up late

The man will give you 
Lots of chances to feel 

Pay no attention to the man
Or the man
Behind the curtain 
Or the man in the moon
Stop waiting for your man
It could be a woman
It could be a sandwich

Listen to the ghost
Fill your ears with cake and bread. 

Sometimes if you just read it again
Something will come
Sometimes if you just start moving
Things start to move

Ich esse schnitzel. 
Ich esse das Leben. 
Ich bin nicht Schwer. 

I am floating through
I’m not fighting the air
I trust it
The air is there always
Hold it
Let it hold you

(This poem was originally recited on November 9, 2014 at Kafe Kult in Munich, Germany)
