billions of thoughts in my life --

five times in just a minute --

Undressed, my nakedness
bound in my skin
with sensually tight ropes

And a whizzing wind of arrows
to lick the blood away
from the resented beauty
they gaze at

the women with tears
the men mocking, boys
and girls curiously

Nobody touches me
nobody feels the warmth
of my body

Pull the heads out of my flesh
embrace my wounds with your hands
and take me, rouse life into me
Sebastian from Narbonne, died AD 288

Divided country:

many carry two buckets --

as a lighter load.

At parties he crawled

through the livestock like a child --

sheep among the sheep.
