Little Bird…

I’ve started a new phase in my life, as you might already know. So I decided to start with another try of the poem-a-day… the idea is to write a poem every day, very simple. I’ll stick to the 4×4 scheme this time, to spend less time thinking about form, and more on sound and interpunction… It is a nice way for myself to see how the things I read influence my use of words and my thoughts – so if you recognise Walter Benjamin, I’m not sorry…

A little bird told me
Nothing – language-less
As it was me listening
Naming the created

I am inextricably
Related, confined, bidden
To my self, my desire – for you
You impossible, unfindable self

I can tell myself everything
Including lies about you
And I do, constantly,
You amazing, wonderful self

A little bird told me
Everything – in a song
And as I listened
You became real
