Kiss a cop for Jesus… Friday / November 14, 2014 #SchwervonPoetry

Kiss a cop for Jesus

Chocolate ice cream
Before midnight 
Hearsay is news 
Lasagne by Aldi

Waking to the sound of 
Running water and cars
A lover snoring
A computer dies every 20 seconds 

I have brilliant friends 
But everybody gets tired

I will employ one thousand
Canary birds to 
Blow my wet hands dry

You don’t have to destroy a life
Just jerk off
And get back to business
In one second everything can change
A worm can turn into a lion
A tree can explode
A teardrop falls from a wire 
A teapot melts 

Banannas for everyone

I express myself 
And sometimes it hurts 
That doesn’t mean the world 
Is there for the purpose
Of absorbing my droppings

The world is a teacher
We learn so much more
When we listen
We learn so much more
When we respect the teacher 

When we love
Sometimes things are difficult 
It doesn’t always rain 
When you want it to
But rain is never wrong 

Bad feelings can grow 
Like a centipede 
But love can grow too

It’s a choice 
It’s easy 
Love is hard
Love can be easy too

(This poem was originally recited on November 14, at Mudd Cub in Strasbourg, France)

Mostly Germany Tour Update 2013 (week 2)

UntitledAfter Regensburg we had a great show in Munich at Sudstadt. It was kind of like a homecoming for us because we played there last year with Jenny Lund and this time it was just Jan solo from Jenny Lund. We said goodbye to Bavaria and it was off to Vienna. In Vienna we stayed with our old friend Steffko. UntitledWe went to a good Vietnamese food place but we passed on the crispy Darm.
UntitledWhat we didn’t pass on was the late night cheesy dog, which seems to be some kind of specialty in Vienna. Yummy! Ouch! UntitledThe next night was a show in Martigny, Switzerland. A beautiful mountain town where we reunited with a great band called Monoski. About 5 years a go we played a show with them in Brooklyn. It was great to play with them again after all these years.UntitledUntitledUntitledNext we were back in Komteri, Tobel. Kind of dreamland for us. We played a great show in the old prison and had a nice day walking around and looking at the beautiful countryside.UntitledUntitledThis is Kim the daughter of our friends Tom and Alice in Tobel.
UntitledUntitledNext stop Zurich! We played Bosch Bar again! And got to see our friends Caro and Ursina. Word on the street is that the door artwork was done by our pal Toby Goodshank!

UntitledTexas sized Croissont!Untitled The next show was our only show in France in a town called Strasbourg. They made this amazing poster.Untitled Everyone was so nice. It made us think that maybe we need to play more shows in France next time.UntitledThe next show was our return to Wetzlar at the Franzis. They have a nice big mirror in the back stage there so we could get pretty before the show!UntitledWhat’s not to love about German breakfast.UntitledAfter breakfast we took a nice long walk with our friend Sigmar and Samson the Wolf Hound of Wetzlar. Untitled The last 2 nights we played in Offenbach and Darmstadt with our friend Alex’s band Mine.
UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledThanks to everyone who keeps coming out to the shows. This week, after several years, we are back in Belgium for 3 shows as well as more shows in Western Germany!
