Hail, Death, This Who Is About To Live Salutes You!

Poem By Thaddeus Thierisch

My heavenly pregnancy is already lasting dozens of years
While the human larval stage is being delayed.
Sometimes my shoulders start to itch as if wings would erupt.
I would mightily flap and rise up... Far from it!
It‘s only a couple of relict acne
Which had to extinct a long time ago...

Sometimes back-ache begins as if prenatal water would leak.
As I‘d be giving a birth for some spirit unstained -
Far from it! Just two scarce tears flow down, bringing a lump to my throat.
No sign of any sacral becoming. No nimbus glows.
It's only a cell phone. The vicarious belched SMS:
'Mom, I got into an accident.'

'Bah, your blackheads stink as a rotten corpse! ' -
I used to hear these words in the same vicarious way when I wanted
My only darling to scratch my skin
In order to release the inner angel faster.
I knew she just smelled death which was treated by me as life.
She was the last woman I've loved. Ever.

Is not mine, independently of endless trying on
My thousand masks. She’s dipping her lips
In the black coffee which flushing her beautiful teeth,

Suicidal Marine

If you were a shore rinsed by murmurous waves,
Mottled with mosaics of sharp stones and seaweed,
Meandering as the curly hair strand shone through by the Sun,


When I was a small boy
I thought that the humpbacks are
Disguised angels
Hiding their wings poorly.

A Sad Tale

And it seemed to him as he had struggled with a dragon of nine heads
In order to free the imprisoned innocent girl from a high tower,
But it turned out that the girl, who wasn’t already innocent,
Only got bored sitting at home, under the supervision of parents,

Summer. The Second Shot

Prohibitions, prohibitions: no camping, no bathing.
Strange, there are no prohibitions from the side of this lake -
No overflowing the shore, no destroying the coast.

Metaphysics Of Feelings

Sometimes the world is reduced to
The rear seat of a car.
Your feet support the 'heaven'
My hands support the 'earth.'
