Snow in your shoes
Siesta in Ljubljana
A Pencil writes with its heart

Snow in your shoes

One does not build a house collecting cutlery
even though a few extra spoons
come in handy sometimes.

One does not build a house from new curtains
even though different views
from time to time
should be shielded by new cloth.

For a home to be a home, among other things
you need a lot of things
you would gladly renounce
in advance.

Listen to what Eskimos say:
to build a good igloo,
for years you have to carry
snow in you shoes.

And a safety pin, forgotten
in your coat collar,
near the jugular.
