his wake-up in a mess of

thoughts

his body moves to a life of its own

he concentrates/ switches on his

silver laptop on loan

for a check-up on the status of

his books on BoD –

where he forgot to activate payment

and agreement for a one-year contract.

he has sold 35 books since he started

two years ago –

but even if writing cannot support

his living/ it’s all he has left

to express himself with text and

with drawings.

legs crossed over/ the left kneecap

showing thru’ her charcoal tights

her anatomy appears visible to the

artist who denudes her of her brown

overcoat/ her light-beige jersey

with only a dove-grey woolen shawl

left abover her charcoal stockings

a strong-boned figure

fallen asleep

the rattling bus shaking her legs open

showing her muscular thighs –

would she sit model for him?
