Zure VrijMiBo

Het is weekend. Doei.
We zagen de spraakwatervallen van Speed,
hangende tuinen, verre sterrebeelden
die toch nabijer dan medereizigers waren.
In een bus vol naasten bezochten we
en werden we bezocht door nachtmerries,
visioenen van heiligen en engelen
zongen ons doof en we ontwaakten
in hotel Harmonie.
Twee spiegels, tegenover elkaar geplaatst
boden ons een oneindig perspektief.
En toch, dacht ik, er moet meer zijn.
Prettig weekend. En be nice.
