Omafiets

I bought a new bicycle


because popsickle time is coming


and I feel so fine when I can


cruise through these streets


And it's too bad that you don't like pork chops because today


I swear, I cooked the best meal I ever cooked


and I'm sure it was just that good


because I was singing along every song that was on - thinking of you


but I like lamb better anyway


dead and alive


and I know this is a paradox and I know I should care more


and don't be so selfish


the one who counts all these „I“'s in this text and writes me the number first


will get a price, myself promises!


There stands my new bicycle


omafiets


but it doesn't even queek and rattle


maybe only a bit


it's quite young for its age


and for God's sake: I love it!


The wheels are bigger


I have far more space to handle where I wanna go


so far


I can ride my bike with no handlebars


No I can't I was just kidding


if you knew me you would know


I'm sitting in the sattle like a queen


and it feels like today I have eindelijk seen how beautiful this city is!


when I cycle to the koor I feel


like the prince on the white horse


riding day and night to save his maid out of this fucking tower


I cycle though Othellopad, Nabuccostraat, along Figaropad


along the Operaweg, Orpheuspad, Tristanpad


Are we Euridyce and Orpheus, Bonny and Clyde or Tristan and Isolde?


Mama, Papa I'm in love


and it feels like youg and sweet


a young athlete running the 100-m sprint in the olympic arena for the first time


can you imagine how fucking nervous he was?


Papageno -Papagena


It's been a while for me that I felt such a director of my life


altough I know that I am just the actor


but I dont feel like the pheasant plucker's wife


who waits until he homes to get her


more like the amateur chess player


who sacrifices the cijfer of the university paper like a peasant


to a stunningly beautiful weekend


and knows that it was worth it!


I feel like stoned


flushed from all this happiness


What a beautiful mess


And with my new shoes on, suddenly everything's right!


I cycle home at night, you by my side, from my second home


from my cozy cove back to the bird's nest


where I was kicked out of and forced to learn to fly


but it was worth the shock because now I can - fly


Und ich halte den Moment fest indem ich all dieses Glück zusammen mit den


Klatschmohnsamen in meinen Balkonkübeln vergrabe und warte bis die Blumen blühn


Aber jeder weiß dass das nicht geht, Momente festhalten


na klar, weil sich die Erde dreht und jede Sekunde ist neu


aber ich


ich habe eine neue Sonne gefunden


um die ich kreisen will.


Die ist manchmal still und ich zu laut,


befürchte ich


aber totzdem schön


warmes licht gibt sie


und ich sitze im T-shirt auf dem Balkon und schwitze, im März


kein scherz, das war wirklich so, gestern. Und heute.


Ich hoffe ich kann das gleiche von morgen, übermorgen, und überübermorgen sagen...
