State Dietology

Poem By Andrei Sen-Senkov

the east german stasi
had a method for driving people insane
when a person would leave the house
agents would sneak inside
they wouldn't break anything
they wouldn't trash anything
they would just move around
little very personal things
knick-knacks photographs books
this would go on for months

sometimes when grey animals fight over food
they swallow so quickly as soon as they get the chance
and then vomit it up
in order to eat later in peace
somebody's little very personal things
knick-knacks
photographs
books

Translation: Ainsley Morse
