gone before the day was done, of
Thought it appropriate to attack
some of yesteryears loose ends,
dug out the state of mind-pillow
did some stitching on it, added pieces
of an old hankie and curtain...
and this fellow (who was inspired by a
detail in a photo of a pair of
embroidered boots which once belonged
to Peter the Great - whether he´s
wearing his royal lace underwear or is
having an x-ray of his rib cage I don´t
feel fit to decide...)
vom Vorjahr mir geblieben
sind fünf Scheffel Reis.
At the start of year,
what I got left from last year
are five bushels rice.
