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
