David Vercammen – I will then be

800

David Vercammen – Program Assistant IE University.

Reading:

I will then be by Louis Paul Boon from the book Collected Poems, 1979.

I will then be gradually becoming

a man feeling old

a flower a poem on the lips

and further crafting some

air pollution and so

 

I will then be gradually becoming

a tidy old man

as our little dog that couldn’t

do anything at home and become deaf

as a pot and so

 

I will then be gradually becoming

with what hoarse voice stories

to my grandson about before

the revolution which we wanted

the Sovjet Republic of Flanders and so

 

I will then be gradually becoming

and asking for my glasses

and looking for my stick

to support and so
