These are the days when I feel the most
The time is right for a most
Timeous intervention on me
Anyone called Mari would
Understand I am in an
Unhappiness buzz right now
So don’t tell me to sort it out
Mail me a note that I might explain
How the loss of my mother still
Affects me since she drowned in the sea
And I won’t swim anymore.
The whole colour of life has changed
And no structure has introduced the noose
To the onstage performance.
These shadowless days – I run away
But I can’t escape.
