Et sjak for sheiken

Det var et sjak for sheiken,
afslørede han ved jubilæet,
hans betroede videnskabsmænd
havde opfundet en måde
at udvinde feta-ost af
Rubiks's Cubes, på dansk
professorterninger, som
en slags forgrublings-
mug, som han ville rushe
ind på markedet, og så
bestak han dem bare, JP,
hvor svært kan det være:
Profeten er en tegnebog

Og så én gang til for Prins Gud:

Fra Michael i 1978 til Mira og Caspar i 2015

Speed of Life

Smahs the clock
with my thoughts -
I only live
at the speed of life

Swiftly change
to a new disguise -
I need transformations
at the speed of life

Form contrasts
need no camouflage -
sick and tired of
not being myself

Change colour
anarchist chameleon -
throw off my mask
change life-form

My mind
grows out of my head -
changed minds
after having been dead

it would seem I now know -
that I do not have
an indestructible self

Who knows
knows what one's self is like
I couldn't care less
myself create myself

Skifter fart
jeg har brug for fartskift
- jeg ændrer mit liv
før det ændrer mig

Irreversible poet no. 3 - The Danish Tweets

Jeg fik ikke hørt amerikanske Mira Gonzalez læse op fredag aften sammen med Ariana Reines og Caspar Eric (som få timer før havde fået sin debutpris i Vejle), men jeg bød velkommen med et Michael Strunge-digt på engelsk til hendes og CE's gode samtale søndag aften, hvor hun læste op fra både sin digtsamling, som CE har fordansket, og sin seneste bog, Selected Tweets (med Tao Lin) - her er hendes danske tweets (2 billeder mangler, de ville hele tiden dække for tekst - og ved ikke om det første/sidste tweet er en Klovn-henvisning, måske har plakaterne overalt i Cph haft sin underbevidste effekt?):
  1. does anyone actually 69? seems like the most insanely complicated thing... why would you... like... nvm
  2. was my 'food poisoning' yesterday psychosomatic? like, did i vomit for hours because i'm scared of not having cellphone service in europe?
  3. i came all the way to denmark just to avoid the bad man with the leaf blower who blows leaves outside my apartment everyday at 7am*
  4. people in copenhagen keep asking me if hood by air is a band
  5. i'm maybe the only mexican jew in all of denmark right now but nobody seems to view me as 'exotic'
  6. how is everyone here so thin and beautiful when it seems like all they eat is ham and cake
  7. so many animals are capable of sucking their own dick but they choose not to. why?
  8. home is where your xanax is
  9. fumbling through like 20 pill bottles desperately searching for my xanax is what i do best
  10. ok one more time: CAN SOMEONE IN COPENHAGEN BRING WEED TO MY HOTEL I AM VERY SICK AND I WANT IT thank you. love, mira
  11. 'what did she ask for? pasta?' 'yes but she sounded american' 'oh hell yeah, bust out the ham'
  12. i asked for plain pasta and they gave me this. denmark is insane
  13. like seamless but only for entire loaves of bread and no other food
  14. seems so unreasonable that if i wanna eat a plain loaf of bread as my first meal of the day at 6pm i have to leave my hotel room to get it
  15. i'm definitely the hottest person in my animal crossing town
  16. oh yeah shout out to the guy at the reading last night who was wearing a shirt that his gf hand embroidered with the title of my book
  17. every time i'm in europe i feel like a fat, disgusting american. but i guess thats what i am so...
  19. drank 3 beers last night then woke up and vomited 3 times. i guess this is growing up
  20. gameshow idea: 'Hangover or Food Poisoning?'
  21. my favorite part about being in denmark is texting my drunk friends at 3am their time and 9am my time
  22. Mira Gonzalez retweetede Tao Lin
    *NOTICE* i am in denmark and also feel what tao said
  23. i briefly did yoga with swedish people in the airport in stockholm
  24. the national dish of denmark is fried bacon so i think i'm never coming home
  25. im on my way to denmark to do some readings and stuff. please bring me weed etc. i'll be the one wearing a cloak
  26. my backpack brings all the preteen boys to the yard 

  27. just packed myself a lunch for my 13 hour flight. it's a party sized bag of salt and vinegar chips, one pudding cup and 2 weed candies

    1. the bad man with the leaf blower is the cause of all suffering in the world. who did 9/11? it was bad man with leaf blower
    2. forgive me father for i have caused bodily harm to the bad man with the leaf blower
    3. there is a bad man with a leaf blower outside my apartment blowing leaves way too early in the morning. why is he trying to hurt me
