Trafika Europe 2 - Polish Nocturne
63. Orion, the Dog Star
The theater swarms with kids. Monsters are flying, monsters are drinking milk. Only the world is unexplained, the rest can be scooped up in a box of crayons. I’m not in the habit of howling, but today I’d like to be a dog. Adulthood comes from sorrow. Sorrow? Life, what flits like a tadpole in children’s eyes, is better than a fairytale, if seen from far away. But this world’s just a tiny Japanese garden, a ball with dancing snowflakes you can hide inside your pocket and again become a monster, live with a monstrous hunger,
devour stones, earth, sky, stars and still be hungry, and you can howl, while others keep on sleeping.
