dance

Gustaf Munch-Petersen: The Lowest Country

leave my eyes alone

from your pain

leave my eyes alone

from your pain –!

 

I have the sorrows

of a whole world

curses

and wildness

somewhere –

a whole accursed world’s wild sorrows

I have –

I dance

I dance –

 

leave me alone –!

I have

all kinds of love

in a lovely room

with a black door – |

 

now

there’s teeth in the umbilical cord –

go away

go away

now I dance –

a fat line across –

 

leave me alone

I have a deep wound –

o, now I dance

alone –

now it works

now I dance

alone –

 

now all gardens fall

that, which is finished,

laugh –
