translation of my bullshit
« on: March 27, 2011, 07:39:05 PM »
In here I try to translate some crap that I regularly post on my wordpress blog.

the starving dogs

The dogs are hungry
with the ribs showing
and the hair falling off
and the bones withering

the dogs are hungry
but they don't want
to eat

In the cracked river bed,
dissapointing its mouth,
the creviced margins
spit blood and sickness
and the last explorer died
and the cartographer had dust
covered glass eyes and left
the map unfinished,
with nothing else to see
on that dead path

the rats were the first to go
then followed all the others

and all that was left were the dogs

the starving dogs
that don't want to eat

Mirrors of
wardour street
06/08/2010

I woke up after twelve
in arm-pit perfume and
yesterday's dirty clothes,
lying on the black leather
couch.

i still had one last joint
so I smoked it and turned
on the tv, but not the
Freeview box. Much better
like this.
all blue.

Gainsbourg, Bukowski,
Kerouac, Camus, Bogie,
Waits.
They'll give lung cancer
and cirrhosis, tied in a
dainty little red bow
for Christmas. That's ok.

But then I walked around
Soho and I saw a thousand
mirrors and they were all
uglier than me

At least until I was raped by
a caramel machiatto starbucks
and sat on the grass, in
front of the church, with
my hair falling out, and
my teeth aching, and my
ulcer burning, and I wrote
this crap.

Then I opened my mouth to
speak but I bleated instead.

i know what to do!

At the end of the day I dropped by my
friend's house, over there in Alvide.
We were sober because there was no money
for booze or weed, so we floated tiny
bubbles of silence and insulted each
other's mothers with the apathetic
Idle Tuesday Glee.

Then he said
"I don't know what to do, man...
I got no money to pay the rent and
I can't get a job and my bike is
in the shop and I have no money
to fix it."

"Hmm", I said

"And it's not like I can go back to
my parents' house, I mean, when we
moved to a new house I asked where
my room was, she said 'outside' and
I said 'outside where?' and she said
'outside, where the sheep run free
and the wolves are never hungry!'"

"Yeah"

"Shit, I even used to have rats here,
Saw them yesterday with little backpacks,
going away, talking to each other, saying
'next house will have some food, I promess',
JOĆO!"

"What?"

"I'm twenty five years old and I can't
even support a family of mice!"

I took a drag of my cigarette and my
eyebrows said fuckin' hell.

Then I went home, dreaming of the red
armchair, the fur of the cat, the bite
of the wine, but a friend showed up
instead, to drink coffee, bitch and moan

"I hate my job, Joćo..."

"Maybe your job hates you too."

"I can't stand it anymore! Five years,
I studied! Now I buy cigarettes and make
coffee and massage the feet of the high
and mighty doctors. Sometimes when they
need a book they can't reach, they use me
as a ladder, but only after they go outside to
step on dog shit.
They spit on my forehead, polish it and
use it as a mirror to floss their teeth."

"Quit." I said

but she went "Can't, need the money"
"How much they pay you?" I asked.
"Five hundred euros. Before taxes."
"O, Fortuna!"
"After taxes", she said "I get twenty cents,
and of those, I have to give
fifteen to my parents, you know,
to help."

I felt like throwing myself in front of a
moving bus, but instead I just said
"Ah, Lusitania!"

"I don't know what to do, Joćo!"

And I had no answers for her.
Not for her, and not for him.
But when I was left alone, with
a dart in my hand and no target
on the white walls around,
sitting on my red armchair
in slow-motion
the sky outside
in time lapse
fur of the cat
bite of the wine
I thought
"I know what to do."

So I turned on the TV
and waited for tomorrow.

Lol oh dear you are correct sir.  >.<

For the record to the people of the intrawebs trolling appeals board, I indeed, in my statement, was referencing an unsolicited spam post that has now been deleted from the intrawebs, and my reply was not directed at the Maliboo writings... I place myself on the mercy of the intraweb to find me not-libelous of posting mean and/or hurtful forum material towards a fellow Intrawebs traveler without just-cause.  This is my sworn affidavit on the 18th of August in the year of our Lord Two-Thousand and Seventeen, and may God have mercy on my soul.   -_-
