ARMANDO (3)


I live with the hope there will be no more poems. Then there are some stupid poems again and I think: may I take a nap? A guy like me has to write them down and before you realize you have a new collection.



Each poem is a thruth in itself. What Goethe once described as “schon dagewesen und noch da der Geist hätte es ohnehin erfunden”.



‘Les chants de Maldoror’ by Lautreamont has also been very important to me. But I never managed to finish the book. Every now and then I had to stop because I found it so beautiful.

You read and write and sing and experience, thinking that one day these things will build the character you admire to live as. You love and lose and bleed best you can, to the extreme, hoping that one day the world will read you like the poem you want to be.
