Medley of Colours

by Ece Apaydin

The residue of the dead soaps! The dance of the hooked insects
in the sink is good. the wire wools are making music
with an angelic dare talking among themselves
the daughters of the water
murderer memories that have committed a secret
that skunking is on me
looking for a serial grave when running into a trouble
and I know where I will arrive.

When it is sunset its possible to be a root tree from the paint tubes
magnificent views which the fake eyelashes are raked the sand
all fights within a room bread crumbs water loopholes
two picnics -type- versus human flood desire vests fight
chastity belts the berries that are full of beans as long as being kissed
that medley of coloring is on me
and I know where I will arrive.
