the stain

the_stain

You would think
that watching two generations
grow old
prepares you
for your own old age.

But seeing her face
when she notices the food stain
that has been on her shirt
since breakfast

you realize

it doesn’t.

trust

oh, to be like the tress, shedding their leaves

each one a little love letter, trusting that spring will come.

of the shy

of_the_shy

You think I’m arrogant,
but my shrugging ist just to mask
my not knowing
what to say.

You think my lack of questions
is a sign of disinterest
but what’s lacking
is only the courage to ask.

Only because I don’t join
your chit chat
doesnt’ mean I don’t feel comfortable
in your company.

Walking besides you
in silence,
means I’m trusting you
with what’s growing in it.

Hamburg

I proudly present the result of my very first cooperation with the awesome Liefka from Längs! Her words, my drawings. Voilà:

hamburg_1

hamburg_2

Hamburg…

in dir werde ich altern.

Denn hier brauche ich keine Feuchtigkeitscreme gegen Falten.

Nein,

hier stelle ich mich einfach auf die Straße, wenn das Gesicht mal wieder spannt.

***

English version:

Hamburg,

this is where I’ll grow old.

Because here I don’t need moisturizer to prevent wrinkles.

No,

here I just walk the streets when my face becomes too tense.

I like to imagine

that we all have inner worlds

some are evasive

others aggressive

and some draw your attention

because they carry within themselves

the promise of

home
