Voor Emmy

Zijn het pluimen of bladeren
die ontsnappen uit je binnenste hartkamer
of is het de gloed van de kleur van kloppend bloed
hunkerend naar de stilte van rimpelloos

Als haar handen vloeibaar worden
krijgt de piano vleugels op het doek
Een boom verbijt haar vergezicht
In de diepte luisteren wortels verrukt
naar de zachte braille van haar bestaan
Tuinen hangen van de wolken
omlaag, omhoog groeien vreemde bloemen
uit een ingebeelde notenbalk.

Kid Quiet by Lovers

zombiesemics inspired by the song Kid Quiet from Lovers

tears of white and grey fall upon your handle-bars andmix in with the rain. oh what a day. you'd never seen a brighter star,you'd never be the same. cause when we touch, the shadow of a bicy-cle is no more beautiful than us. so at dusk, meet me on old summerroad in the autumn cold to talk. kid genius, you built me a radio, saidwhen i feel alone, turn it on, and i'll find you there somewhere with atinfoil smile or like a star. with no one ever there you'd laugh eachtime they didn't care but now your sides ache and i came too late.with glitter in your eyes you'd laugh each time you would've cried butnow your sides ache. you laughed until the tears came. and nowyou've gone away, and in a little room i dream of you and the picturein my brain doesn't fade like the circles of a radio signal float out intospace. and before you lfet you came and hung a string of lightsaround my bike as i slept. a sweet planet where fireflies zoom like ahundred moons around your room in orbit is my wish, and a ten-foot-tall mirror-ball hung from city hall. and good magic. my constellationkid, i plotted the routes you'd traveled through and the line i drew con-nnecting it made a clear image of a lightening bold through your child-hood home, like the stories told on your wrist. tears of white and grey.i'll never see a brighter star.
