Satunnainen teksti

Lacking a name

I am the grain of sand born from the paving
between the tiles
- I repeat the same mantra for myself
while I watch the shoe soles that stomp me

I'm not even sure are these
thoughts my own
or did someone else take me as their own a long time ago
when they forged independence for me

     My yells don't actually become louder
     I just hear the static from the traffic

What am I?



Majority of the poems from 2017 to earlier haven't been translated yet,
so they'll currently appear in Finnish. This is an ongoing process,
since there's a lot of 'em. (Please do enjoy the newer ones tho.)
