English Nr. 163 Poezie

The thickness of air

The atmosphere consists of
thick layers of air

Your breathing slows down
you don’t want to fall
into yourself

The exposure to light
automatically triggers
the impression

Your thoughts just move
left and right

You feel the weight of latitudes
until your attention is captured
by the crackle of trees

You would like to command yourself
to get up and to move to somewhere else
but isn’t it too late to be a night watchman?
