with my colleagues and friends
we play frisbee.
For someone it is a food
for his frustration,
for another – inspiring relaxation.
Someone throws
curses and rudeness,
someone – virtues and happiness.
The frisbee
to someone is an obligation,
to another one – a challenging inspiration.
A painting-pick of someone’s character
or someone’s disguised
Socrates’ trick.
Oops …
A child grabbed it
and tightened it under its arm.
Let it go…
A small rest
will do us no harm.
In canoes, galleys and boats
people without vision
crisscross the glazed arches.
They are proudly pounding
on transparent floors
(in)visible democracy,
(un)conditional freedom,
A finger
twisted and pointed
in parallel repetition
of undefined geometry
of round(ed) collision
of annular species and fence walls,
vibrates a new vision…
what if we were just decorative fish
in the aquarium
of some another dimension?
On the threshold of the forest
of the stressful awareness
the grasses of insanity
alike mushrooms
whiten like distaffs
wraped with cotton
from the sickly humanity.
From behind the bushes with blackberries
the ignored bundles of certainty
shake up the powerlessness of mastery
with the dark purple reality.
Modern Einsteins
secretly test their own
postmodern theories
of relativity.
In the era of stunted innovativity
any dynamism is also relative
– in the numerous sequence of the eternity
it is a minor torpidity.
