Kasen: Sunflowers Here and There  
**** first folio, front
end of september 
sunflowers here and there 
facing north  

a line on the horizon 
a road under my feet  

to proceed 
in the colours of leaves 
indian summer  

everywhere on his desk 
scribbled papers  

a sentence in Aramaic 
against the full moon 
branches of the walnut tree  

her tummy is a little rounder 
everything vibrates, here, under my hand

**** first folio, back
behind the windowpane 
a thousand twirling dots 
yellow red and brown  

the orangey chrysanthemum 
still catches the sun  

late at night 
the clocks 
and the last lamp  

wings outstretched, a fly 
flattened on the floor  

alone among grass 
blooming this morning 
a hollyhock  

an only scar 
he sees her body perfect  

as of the first day 
the mirror of their love 
unblemished  

orange moon 
above a football match  

big stadium 
thousands of people follow 
the executions 

one minute to wait 
before they open fire  

the scent of burning logs 
in the snow-filled air 
a deaf silence  

the pencils slide 
sounds of chalk

**** second folio, front
lying on my breast 
a friend's baby falls asleep 
at last  

my lungs breathe again 
under her frail unmoving features  

the journalist 
has frozen the deserted streets 
Christmas truce  

light, this morning 
on the station benches  

a few jolts 
the train gets started 
two teenagers laugh  

theatre workshop - they rehearse 
the drowning, doubled up with laughter  

my hand flat on your back 
trembles in the dark 
the sound of rain  

five rays of the star 
clipped onto her shirt  

a coat belt 
questions 
the pavement 

Main road - a child sitting 
leans over a drunk  

way down the Eiffel Tower 
the full moon 
all lit up  

they visit the black hole 
from new Pompeii

**** second folio, back
through 
preparations of war 
signs of spring  

the doves of peace 
the pigeons of peace  

square window 
of the bathroom 
songs of birds  

april, a path under trees 
a whirl of petals  

red tips 
leafing under flowers 
apple tree in may  

flags and banners 
marching towards summer
