My minimalized uterus

A tower ahead steering me towards the dead
A little shuttle locks the path

I am dying here
Sitting wealthy in the airport’s waiting area

I will bleed to death
Leaving nothing but my minimalized



My lost feet

I had the beach all to myself
Despite my wish for closer relations

Fifty years have passed
And here I am
Isolated from the longed for world
Going on all around my lost feet



The skull of Mother Earth

The skull of Mother Earth
lays resting on Milky Way’s worn out diamonds

Empty as a newly exorcised christian
she begs for mercy
