Project Description

“Може би затова се заех с най-прозаичното упражнение на този свят – ако може да се вярва на древните философи – в поредното си упражнение по умиране, като се опитвах не само да философствам, но и да намирам смислени обяснения. Дори си водя „записки“.

И продължавам да посягам към книгите, в които са кодирани кардиограмите на времето!

“Чакам Човека

да спре на ъгъла. Понякога сънувам –

като бяла лястовица каца

на клетката от тръни,

в която душата си натъпках и затрупах с мълчания.

Още чакам

да се появи Човекът, но долавям

само стъпки. Отдалечава се…


с трън в петата. И моето безсъние го следва

като вярно куче.

След тях

животът ми


като сянка..”
