you change clothes when you go work. draw your eyes cause you go work. and cause you work

noble things. you straighten yourself, spread your gestures when you go work. you speak more

than you have words for. even laugh. laugh even more readily than elsewhere. your shadows

are in the other set of clothes. shadows without lipstick or much blood. you build foundations.

build yourself. you don’t know anymore whether you’re disbodied or not.

                                                      you change clothes and keep quiet

se preoblečeš, ko greš delat. si narišeš oči, ker greš delat. in ker greš delat

plemenite stvari. ravnaš se in širiš svoje kretnje, ko greš delat. govoriš več,

kot imaš besed. celo smejiš se. smejiš se celo lažje kot drugje. tvoje sence

so v drugih oblačilih. so brez šminke ali z veliko krvi. postavljaš temelje.

postavljaš sebe. ne veš več, ali si iztelešen ali ne.

                                                      se preoblečeš in molčiš.
