"CO/UT" von Jasmin Veeh

Aus dem Gedichtband „Darling, I’m Leaving“


I’ve learnt not to start a verse with “it” but

It is very humbling when a mountain starts talking to you

He tells me that he is not bothered by our small rules

As he is the giant looking upon us

Being called the garden of gods

And he intends to behave that way


Some tiny humans are stumbling around between his toes

He never minds as long as they listen to the choir

Of the trees growing on the odd places all over his body

They sing he is just like us

But with a little more



He listens but laughs when I read him a poem I wrote:


It it

It it it it

It it it it it it it it it it

It it it it it it it it it it it it it it

It it fuck the rules it it

It it it sometimes it it it

It it it it it it it it it it

It it it it



And then tells me that he thinks it’s lovely

But I should stop taking everything so seriously


After a while of listening there you’ll see.

Human laws or physics’ rules or the way time works

Are mere observations

And their song will make you fantasize about

How a monumental mountain life would be

If that was a thing your tiny mind could even comprehend
