Nepublikováno. Until Now.

An old woman with a rabbit paw.

Lubomír Tomik

The old woman picked up the keys
with a rabbit paw.


In the distance
a silhouette of a man appeared,
he stumbled over to her and whispered:


-I’ll buy expired train tickets!-


Instead of teeth he had thousands
small pliers,
from thousands of fearless train guides.

Stařena se zaječí packou.

Lubomír Tomik

Zvedla klíče stařena,
klíče se zaječí packou,


v dálce
se objevila silueta muže,
doklopýtal k ní a zašeptal:


-Koupím prošlé vlakové jízdenky!-


Místo zubů měl tisíce
malých kleštiček
od tisíců neohrožených průvodčích.

In case the Sicilian bandits descended from the mountains.

In case the Sicilian bandits descended from the mountains.

Lubomír Tomik

 In case the Sicilian bandits descended from the mountains,
 Franco Nero somewhere in the film
                                        decorations of fake  studio Cinecittá snaps,
 it arouses general merriment talking about the new Pompeii,
beauty rides on mountain ridges.

 In case the Sicilian bandits descended from the mountains
 and they hung you upside down at a gas station,
like some Benito,
 fill your pockets with cottage cheese,
 then let it sour down on the pavement of the street
 whitish mass mixed with crumbs of crusty bread,
 interdental space ready for reception .

In case the Sicilian bandits descended from the mountains,
 come with me, the tide line is nearby
 nearby.

I Love You.
