“NO HOLIDAY” (Ünneptelenül)






Muteness facing
noise outpacing furious
stride keeping
up slowing
down holding
in breathing
out sweetly beating
them at their own
game one hand
tied behind
No holiday!

How needling
words scrawling
sprawling splaying
playing across this time
stained sheets
how coaxing cajoling conjuring
confessing and then
birthing itself thus
this late stage
of the game
No holiday!

Thinking idly about
the smooth potato
this time nothing
beckoning reckoning no
absence or presence
silence being soft
and darkness not
unfriendly just
a new game
No holiday!
