Why did you have to die?
during the spring war?
While birds roared commands in front of the window.
and buds detonated around me.
The air bombed me with hope –
Opponent’s Propaganda

You went
and the sun began to retreat.
She evacuated her light,
to shine far away from me.
I understood: Everybody save himself –
And I stayed while all the sirens cried.

When you were gone,
I got behind enemy lines.
Saw a ladybug in the minefield of my tears,
on each wing four hits
Did you hear gunfire or was it my heart?
No more refuge between wreckages of life.
