Goran Bacic | POSTURE


Good morning
Good as in another
Another as in plenty
Plenty as in guilt
Burden as in over-burdened
The guilt of plenty
Another morning’s
“Good Morning!”

It is still night with
No sun to say “Rise!”
No sun to say “Risen!”
Still, a good morning

A me to the right
A me left in front
With a razor edge
Not too unlike me
In damp hands
Ritually removing the stubble
That clings onto the last
Good mornings
