GILI HAIMOVICH
Passive Rebellious

I have grown estranged to peacefulness, though Im not hiding from pleasure, not running away, at least not deliberately. I still kick theoretically. When presenting, prefer to add, to my maiden name, not to my surname, into the present tense Passive Rebellious so there is no revealing of past struggles Instead I winnow (win + now?) a hint of secrecy.

GILI HAIMOVICH
Lint Season

Lost in a familiar landscape. bad desire, wrong desire? We wont let our biology to cast us away. Well let the lint subdue us, drowning us in white foam, instead of seducing each other. Well let the lint overcloud us, like snow. Lost in a familiar landscape, wanting nothing but coffee, not wine, Im pretending to hug you. Im grateful to you, to not know Im lost. The lint will follow my footsteps, like ducks in a row. You think you can stop me from falling. The ice is no snow, the snow is no lint. Between the duvets I am still your leader.
