Neuron's lover / Amanta lu' Neuron

                                              Neuron’s lover In the last 20 years an entire field of literature (could I call it literature?) appears to be dedicated to “relationships”. Either fictional or so-called scientific books, novels, materials (you name them!) attacked the market with their remedies and recipes on “how to make a relationship perfect” in two or...Read More »

Almost a poem

                      Almost a poem He loved me. A six-O kind of love: He looooooved me. But he didn’t love me, me. He loved a girl who doesn’t exist. I was pretending, the way I often did, pretending to have a personality. I can’t help it, it’s what I’ve always done: the way...Read More »

My Phoenix January

                    My Phoenix January I was born in the light of night, between denial, despair, delight, upon my word, I nothing knew of my new life and its own dew.

                      Si… …cad zapezile-ostenite, si-n mine urla lupi natangi, adulmecand poteci gresite. Te-astept pe tine sa-i alungi. … fug de oameni printre oameni, si-n inima-mi omatu-i greu, si sunt un nimeni printre nimeni, te cat pe tine, omul meu. …vantul suduie napraznic, si limba lui nu-i limba mea, la moartea dorului fac praznic. Te-astept sa plangi cu fulgi de nea. …iar ma nasc in...Read More »

Musca secunda din mine....July 22nd, feast of Mary Magdalene

                                                  Musca secunda din mine Musca secunda din mine Si îmi musca din lumine; Bu tot visez un drum pierdut Dar nu-l mai vad ca la-nceput Sa fi venit din asfintit Prin lan de grâu îngalbenit? Sau iesit pe cea poarta Calea mea era desarta De-mi ieseau în cale spinii Pâna-n marginile vinii? Si, fatal, fara cuvinte, Vedeam cruci fara morminte, Parca-n tarini, prabusite, Fara...Read More »

The countdown

                    The countdown The last morning of this year. While the rest of the “crowd” still sleeps (holidays!), I enjoy my solitude watching the trees shivering naked in the wind. The soft and cozy armchair comforts me in the kitchen, the only place of the house that allows me to make noise,...Read More »
