Big sister

The little big nosed guy from a while ago
got a big sister...















"als meine schwester den hasen
penelope nannte ihr freund in blauen
hosen sein spirriger oberkörper
nackt am stall also käfig im haus
da am kamin stand zwischen den
spillerzehen die weiche pfote
braungoldenen hasenfells hielt
einen wunsch - als da meine
schwester ganz ärztin den hund
streichelnd sagte narbe ist
was sich vom verzweifelten
zusammenwachsen
nicht dehnt
dachte da jemand
lächelnd in der backe
oh schludrige freier

als meine schwester
in blauen hosen
am kamin stand
braungoldenen hasenfells
ganz ärztin sagte
was sich vom verzweifelten
nicht dehnt
lächelnd in der backe
penelope nannte ihren freund
nackt am stall also käfig im haus
die weiche phote hielt
einen wunsch
streichelnd sagte narbe ist
zusammenwachsen
dachte da jemand
freier"

(Ulrike Draesner: penelope)

when my sister called the rabbit
penelope her friend in blue
pants his slouching torso
naked by the stall that is cage in the house
there by the fireplace stood between the
skinny toes the soft paw
golden-brown rabbit fur held
a wish — when there my
sister quite the doctor petting
the dog said scar is
what from its desparate
growing together
does not stretch

someone then thought
smiling in cheek
oh scruffy suitor

when my sister
in blue pants
stood by the fireplace
golden-brown rabbit fur
quite the doctor said
what from the desparate
does not stretch
smiling in cheek
penelope called her friend
naked by the stall that is cage in the
house
the soft paw held
a wish
petting said scar is
growing together
someone then thought
suitor

The little big-nosed guy must be so happy! Receiving an elder sister, that´s not common, but certainly so desirable. I love both, I like the "whiteness" of figures and background (& associate it with purity, innocence, sensitivity...)
