Air

An air
for an heir
without air.
Asthmatic wheezing
like squeezing
a leaky bandoneon.

More air
for the heir!
He's suffocating
He's suffering
He's sipping and sucking
He's reaching and screeching
for that precious element
you never think about.

But then, he never thinks about
you while he's coughing
and huffing
and puffing
for the air
required by the heir
while you are neither here nor there
for the heir
who does not care
for he does not bear
interruptions to his sacred task
of hoarding you know
what.

The itch

Every other twitch and shudder
Caused by itchings and mutterings
Of misplaced memories and lost words
For things you'd never need
And needs you'd never think
Of.


Yes, it is poetry night in Sumutia. Prepare to suffer.

Taking the air


A little bout of urinary tract problems is getting better now. Apparently the plumber, by fixing the leaking washing machine intake tube, deprived Mömö of a sufficiently amusing source of hydration...

Fingers of light



Mongo skies


I'm pretty sure that the last time I saw a sky like that I was watching Dino de Laurentiis' Flash Gordon flying above planet Mongo...

Stuck in Turku



So I made a video about it. Music by Meisselschieber (which is Oorlog Braatö and me on various instruments and mixing/recomposing out of samples by Yours truly). The trees grew leaves and the cat lost a pound or two while I gathered the 2344 pictures needed for this...
