in the
fluffy paws
of this
black bear
we cuddle
until spring



You still live in the stone
Riding your marble horse
And chasing the big bad
Dragon of our sins

And then you stab him
With your spear but he didnít die
He also lives in the solid
Eternity of the rock

This continues for some time
Soon everything around you
Goes soft rots and disappears
But you are timeless

Once upon a time there was
A chisel and hammer and now
You are in the frame of the mountain
Amid our white bones you live forever



Kanev Peycho, Bulgaria and Chicago
