on screens, streets, in the studio: all too many dolls.

spotlights are powerful, penetrating through

the moon. I hold

                                   the bat ready in someone’s arms

 

wrinkled and grey-haired,

the dolls don’t outgrow the chairs. not yet. they stare at their profiles

                                                                  with samples of grains.

na zaslonih, v ulicah, sredi studia: vse preveč je punčk.

reflektorji so močnejši in skozi luno

petetrirajo.kij

                                   v nekih rokah imam pripravljen

 

gubaste in sivih las

punčke stolov ne prerastejo. ne še. z vzorci zrn

                                                                  zrejo v svoje profile.
