everyday with your mothers – you’d say bitches, some others say : queens – and we matter,

matter for you to know of a certain standing -- for standing is what’ s missing in the initiation phase of dharma worldliness

and so you’ve chosen the guiding force and gathered them around you

to serve them, appointing status

one must glorify. you glorify. and i wonder

i see how we could have met earlier, maybe not in the living room that all of you now occupy maybe before you’ve opted out of being equals

now, i see you daily brother man. you clean after your bitches. these huskies multiplied, their hair is everywhere. some months i witness, they’re still growing. those babies are your family. Mama, as you call her,

sleeps on the couch while we ought to tip- toe around her... resting presence. it’s telepathic strength and you argue for submission : ‘ pssst’ she can understand us

the other female eyes that won’t see you, hear you, fragments of the story escape you, the past that won’t resolve you tell, i hear the knocking that persists

care my daily, i m used to husbands/ housecats

you brought the CD machine

reminds me of Bang and Olufsen. you were 18 in the 80s and signed on to avoid the army, in west Berlin. polish hearts cry the multi occupational : Silesia. sat in London 30 years later we’re listening to Cypress Hill, musing. what a premier!

the sound of a bong on the radio, remember!

when the back broke the disc slipped, the building stopped. the landscape gardening, the carrying to multiply, you affirmed to procreate...

i say core and twist, swirl to change and escape any rigidity

picture a dancing girl and this body-resting seated man with dogs on his hands. riches

Arek i see your dreams

we are still listening to the bubbling water-air in glass-tubes speaking to get high, and surpass the programming of our proteins (as you had called the body mass of trauma). i wait for us to move. linguistically confirmed this is. it’s your call, all this dharma

i wanna take a puppy and bring it on the train. to get to your boat.

make it to Enfield and start to clean

for you to move on with your family

for you to start strengthening your back again
