How the logs crackle and click

How the oven pounds, licks

How homely warmth feels

How sparks whirl like fen fires

How friendly the cows graze

How majestic the mountains throne

How glistening and entirely the fog devours us

How good it feels to abandon convenience

How the woods smell and rustle

How flowers give their loveliness

to the wondering eye that dwells

How we experience nature anew

and awe for the wonders of creation

How sparkling this chilly wetness tumbles down our throats

How fresh the wind is whizzing around our ears

How calm our fluttering soul becomes

who warms herself on the quiet of the land


As we become quiet and lucid

As we become transformed and anew for this eternal moment

Black Polished Chrome (Latino Chrome)

The music was new black polished chrome And came over the summer like liquid night. The DJ’s took pills to stay awake and play for seven days They went to the studio And someone knew him Someone knew the TV showman

He came to our homeroom party and played records And when he left in the hot noon sun and walked to his car We saw the chooks had written F‑U‑C‑K on his windshield He wiped it off with a rag and smiling cooly drove away He’s rich. Got a big car.

My gang will get you Scenes of rape in the arroyo Seduction in cars, abandoned buildings Fights at the food stand The dust the shoes Open shirts and raised collars Bright sculptured hair.

Hey man, you want girls, pills, grass? C’mon… I show you good time. This place has everything. C’mon… I show you.

Doing Elephants (not that way)

If been to a really entertaining birthday party last weekend.
Since the hosts are working on their thesis, many acedemics came.
They even asked the guests to submit a paper, which three people did,
the papers even got rated (nerds!).

And then there was this study. Someone came up with the idea, that one should “Do an elephant”.
Actually this is about body language, so valued reader, what would you do to resemble an elephant?

The outcome of the study was, that German speaking people hold their nose and slip their other hand
through the loop, then they wave. We had people who flutterted their hands as ears,
some did a more egyptian style elephant, others just did noises.
Ok, one Swiss guy didn’t get the “nose holding” right, but all others did.

The German speaking versionother cultures / languagesnot German speak, more egypt style

Gosh that was fun.
