KINGA FABO
The Transfiguration of the Word

Open, the sea appeared asleep. Carrying its waves. A pulse under the muted winter scene. Throwing a smile on the beach. A nun-spot on the hot little body. A color on the broken glass. A gesture that was once closed. Lovely as the sea stood up. Throwing a smile on the beach. I wanted to remain an object. But, no, immortality is not mine. I am too strong to defend myself. Waiting for punishment. This and the same happened together. Silently, I sat in the glass. Only the spot wandered on the naked scene. Sounds did not continue. Only an omitted gesture. Happiness like an unmoving dancer. Beatings on naked, bony back. And the sea will no longer be immortal.

KINGA FABO
Abstractions

Somethingís gone wrong between us. Something that's never existed. How come so insidiously? So that I wasnít even there at all? The same way. Itís always the same way. Heís good, he never inflicts wounds. The other him? His own light makes him shiver. Wicked, gothic lace-trimmed neck. Ugly posture, hopeful-cautious nakedness. Infertile woman. How trite! Too much and too little at the same time. Little abstractions! Iíve composed you all. Itís not very funny to compose this way. Itís in fact like a great big overstatement. Like love. The two children, who not for me - touched me deeply. Of course, I didnít show it. For want of better I lived the part of the beautiful woman.
