Smoke gets in your eyes

Om jou lief te hê, is om met vuur te speel.

Om oor jou te skryf, is ‘n hartoorplanting

sonder narkose

sonder ‘n skenker

sonder die regte bloedgroep betyds gevind

met ‘n gestel afkerig aan soveel buise,

verbindings, pypies …

met ‘n lyf bang vir ondersoekende oë, hande,

pratende monde.

Om jou lief te hê, is om met vuur te speel.

Om oor jou te skryf, laat die hart ineentrek –

spasmodies, vir oulaas, refleksmatig, tevergeefs.

Lub-dub.

PS.

Staan opsy, my hart (nie verstand)

nes Katherine Grayson s’n, is aan die brand.
