NOW - 22.02.18 - Footprints and skis

I was waiting so much for the snow
It came in the night. Probably.
Quickly and a lot.
I dressed, ran to the park and dashed towards the café crunching the whiteness under my feet
After a hundred meters I turned around and froze
The black chain of footprints resembled a hieroglyph from an unknown language
I had turned on time
The hieroglyph was complete
Carefully stepping in my own tracks, I went back to the start
Standing there I’m smiling, but my heart is pounding wildly
I can’t go sideways - it’s a one way path
I’ve already walked through it – you can’t do it twice
And I can’t return home – that’s how old age is calling
The day was getting lighter. My feet were freezing. I didn’t move
A powerful burning in my groin spoke, told me me that the hieroglyph knew about me and was made not by footprints but a trail of black kisses.
I rang Renat. He is an actor – he understood everything.
In an hour he was there with a pair of skis
“These are old. You can have them”
He threw them to me to avoid coming too near and getting into something he would never be able to forget, then modestly left
And I glued the metronome of footprints together with ski tracks
It was just very important for me, that these two lines became a long “==” sign
I left the skis at the end of the trail and springing like a hare leapt off to the café.

The day begins from nothing.

How wonderful. The number Pi!
Now we know everything!
No more secrets, everything has been revealed!
All questions answered!
Even if they were never asked!
Now we know names, prices, how many freckles Amelia has, the temperature on Phobos, we know that tomorrow is Tuesday,
We know Odin’s DNA, we know there are five fingers, six senses and seven sins.
We know four wives are allowed.
And that there will be no war on 16th of March.

We know that everything is possible!!
And we know that we don’t need to do anything.

People have made a lot!
So much. Much is already broken or rusted.
No problem! We’ll produce more!
Everything is counted, painted, discarded, bought, used, hidden, resold, shared, smothered in kisses and forgotten.

In Leipzig the police shot down a drone flying over the city centre.
It crashed with its cargo – a teddy bear.
Someone wanted to deliver a gift in an original way.
Well?? Come on, go to the shop, buy a second bear and march forward!
On foot, as you were!
To personally dispatch the gift into happy little hands.

That’s it!
Everybody’s free, at last.
No need to think or gossip, to search for the truth, clarifiy. Nothing to talk or exchange opinions about.

We know everything!



2017 for me was four kg of Plutonium.
Not enough critical mass.
And then, finally, it exploded, and this shimmering haze suddenly condensed in my head, the mosaic began to melt, and mixing in wonderful streaks, the lava of ravings and consciousnesses flowed down to the shore of my one and only river, hissed on the wet sand and began to cool.
I’ll wait for a while
And then I’ll hop over the still warm stone into the water
To bathe.
