Poul Lynggaard Damgaard

            Tr Rikki Kirchheiner

Whether I have a body tomorrow depends on
whether I’ve ever had a body of
My head is the reality of others.
No home flickers like yours.
I ask for all witnesses to sleep.
You talk to a part of something beyond yourself.
I walk into a branch just to feel a single leaf.


Om jeg har en krop i morgen afhænger af  
om jeg nogensinde har haft en krop af  
Mit hoved er andres virkelighed.  
Intet hjem flimrer som dit. 
Jeg beder om at alle vidner skal sove.
Du snakker med en del af noget ud over dig selv.  
Jeg går ind i en gren blot for at mærke et enkelt blad.
