when sticks float

 

april morning

 

beneath the water surface the tail is dancing

an invisible paddle gives vibrations

 

I can’t hear the voice

a song is playing               rings in my ears

 

when sticks float

 

I can’t see

the sticks gathering

 

a place is being built about the night

a play old as the sea

the stick goes from a to b

the physiological buoyancy

darwin knew

 

when sticks float

 

in the morning it’s too late

fallen trees

the site is taken

a house is finished

 

when sticks float

 

 

 

när pinnar flyter

 

aprilmorgon

under vattenytan simmar svansen

en osynlig paddel ger vibrationer

 

hör inte

lyssnar på en låt                ringar i öronen

 

ser inte

pinnar som samlas

 

ett hem byggs upp om natten

 

en rörelse gammal som havet

pinnen flyttas från a till b

dess fysiologiska flytkraft

darwin visste

 

på morgonen är det redan försent

träden fallna huset färdigt platsen är tagen
