Poems by Pavol Janik
submit patent proposals.
They are mainly concerned with the utilization of
twinkling of the stars,
movements of eyelashes and butterflies,
sparking of lovers,
and pull force of the muses.
Beyond that, I propose
a household innovation.
In your modern kitchen,
replace gas with
It will lighten your work
and take away all your worries.
White angel shines like silica.
Glass panes are decorated with frost ornaments.
The time of wonders and transformations is here.
Most secret dreams will come true;
diamonds are pouring on us from the sky.
Behind the windows, the sparkling wind carries subtle chimes of Church bells from afar.
Christmas time with the scent of pine flew into our homes from the bright star.
Together we are everything we need.
