Lines on Cabbage

 .

I do not know if I go on

as I have begun

as I have begun

go on

.

go on and on

I cannot

see the moon tonight

the moon tonight

I cannot see

 .

a blackbird

on the neighbour’s chimney

on the neighbour’s chimney

a blackbird

there was a blackbird

there was a blackbird

.

on the stove, I am cooking

onions noodles peas and carrots

onions noodles peas and carrots

and some cabbage

.

lines on cabbage

please do not repeat

.
