Poem

Lieke Marsman

The following scan will last one minute

with cancer in your back everything
is suddenly afforded an epic quality

two people in a car
magical!

tying your own shoelaces
the stuff of poetry!

Simone feeding me recovery ward noodles
a fairy tale

De volgende scaan duurt één minuut

De volgende scaan duurt één minuut

met kanker in je rug krijgt
alles opeens iets episch

twee mensen in een auto
magie!

zelf je veters strikken
gedichtwaardig!

Simone terwijl ze me ziekenhuisbami voert
een sprookje
Close

The following scan will last one minute

the stuff of poetry!
