Big Sal on Under the Cover of the Snow (Tue, 29 Jan 2019 07:28 pm)
In the waves of the ocean
There is no one else
but us and the notion
Of the birds and the whistling leaves
That crawl into the room
Where we lay in the sheets
And I drown in the rhyme
That you paint in my mind
Drawing a line, deep and insane, between
beauty and pain
The birds outside these ocean walls
They sing their noisy song
The pressure in my chest, i...

there you are, behind the glass
so close, so far
and time's too fast, for us
cause it's timeless what we want to be
and how we want to see
the grains of our love growing into a mystic tree
sitting on my wooden chair
your legs crossed, a face cold as frost,
the gaze turned to the ground
your body bounded in the kettles
that you chose a long time ago

in the rush of the city,
the uncertainty, the sorrow, the pain,
there is a haven peculiar and pretty
that shines a light on us
the walls, so high, they gather the light
during the day
it radiates through the surfaces,
and when the sun sets down
it warms the night
and the minds flow
when music feeds the souls
and passes strenuous thoughts
turning them into red triangl...

Under the cover of the snow
there is a place you don’t know,
Cause it’s too soon, you say,
The crescent moon
rests on the sky,
the snow blanket is heavy and high.
And so I stamp through the trebly snow,
I stamp through the trebly snow.
The sun sets behind the arctic hill.
Snowy trees in colours of rose and blue fill
They embrace m...

The bus rolls down the highway road.
Small fishes in shoals
travelling through my belly, my chest, my throat.
Your ruthless sun burns my skin.
It pierces through the pale glass
of the window, while the wheels just spin
and my mind tries to run
from your bright bright sun.
But I can't. I just can't.
And I try.
And I fight the light.
But I can'...

Limping through the park
The waterfall flows wistfully
a straight line of cars continues the movement
at the end of its stream
It’s getting dark in the park
like small light balls
the cars they beam
I watch this transition from above
Something inside of me, a gleam,
and the sense of shove,
makes me want to scream
But I stay silent and contin...

I slide, I turn
I jump and fall
Shift my weight from foot to foot
To my hands
Lean my back against the wall
I slide, I turn
I slip in front of her
And sticks like glue
On my black pants
I slide, I turn
Wounds on my skin
I follow her commands
A wave catches my body
My body, the shore
The nail polish of my toes leaves red stri...

take me and let me be bewitched
by your whirling beauty
let me vibrate in your impassioned pulse
and hover on the edge of
heaven and hell
cut of the borders
bring me to a world without divisions
a place where day and night are one
a molten mass
flowing into the flesh under my skin
and out again —

Chords they penetrate
the chambers of her mind
In each room a different sound
another melody combined
with rhythms glucking, aggressive and refined
Should she let go?
Open the doors and let the music be free?
It’s the first day of the year.
The window opens
The air is light, the sky is clear
Her lungs filled with freedom
A shout into the open space!

Wuthering words flying in the wind
they colour the room
Blown kisses print
Eyes they shine, cheeks they bloom
His body like a wave
Water gets in my eyes
I cry in the cave
by the lonely sea
I am the universe, he says, I am a star
The waves they crash
the cave in the sea, my mind
He presses me on t...

Walking, along the silent street
In the darkness, the snow glints like fire
I scrunch it with my naked feet
It burns, it tingles
It’s the burning I desire
In front of me, a wet black hole
surrounded by blue ice
I tremble in my flesh and soul
I’m here, I’m there, in no disguise
And every step I take leaves a print
I measure with my eyes
Then a splash, a br...
