Johannes S. H. Bjerg


from the planets of the other world feel it more
      17 syllable ku written while listening to the music of Scott Cortez



if I hum walls will crumble or become cotton candy then I'll wear the blue shoes

:

she merges with the window on a Monday light is a dog she keeps for walking

:

if anything: I watch a rose bloom in The Origin of the World

:

in the right pupil a revolving door to a hall for seahorses

:

between my ears a melting altar for the absent some muscles hurt

:

let's move slowly not to damage the light the streets will catch us and laugh

:

in a short life (they're all short) eternity is a D-major chord
