van de langzame passen                                                                                    wordt het spoor

 

 

                     gewist

2019

it rustles

 

in the vivid tones                                                                                                                                                                     of

 

 

the motion the length the size                                                                   the weight

                                                                                                                                                                                         my body

 

 

she has a rhythm                                        pace

 

                                                                                                                                                   a form

 

that become part of her surroundings

                                                                                                                                                                                                      where

 

 

things at their own pace                                            own tones                                                                       carry

 

both breathe

air of life

 

falling down                                      they are glued

 

                                                                                                                                    fragile surfaces

 

 

in a scenery

                 move between                                                                                                        lines

 

are being drawn                                               watch                                                                                                    not

                                                                                                                                                       watching

 

 

we read

crossed-out words

 

                                                       copy                                              we

                                                                                                                                                                       keep repeating

 

the slow steps                                                                                                                the track is

 

 

                     erased

 

 

                               what remains

 

 

 

                                                                                                              an emptiness
