CLAES ANDERSSON
Roommates 

The first had been transformed into a cleaning machine.
The second had been changed into a small child.
The third had cut off his sex in solitude.
The crying of the fourth kept the other three awake.

The fifth was exposed to radiation.
The sixth had a stomach full of rats.
The seventh was persecuted for communism.
The weeping of the eight kept the other seven awake.

The ninth maintained that innocent people were being killed.
The tenth prophesied the end of the world.
The eleventh had out of mercy strangled her child.
The tears of the twelfth kept the other eleven awake.

The one made into an object. The one turned into a child.
The one harmed by radiation. The perspiracious one.
The one who saw the catastrophe approaching.
The farsighted one who strangled her child.
The ones in tears who kept their friends awake.


When you're dead...

Like the Shore We Practice Speaking

Who was he that...

All night we talked about death

Talk in the night on the porch

When I was born
