A Flamingo’s Dream
by Aleksander Wat
Water water water. And nothing but water.
If only an inch of land! An inch of no-matter-what land!
To set one foot on! If only!
We begged the gods for that! All of them!
Water gods, land gods, southern gods, northern gods,
For an inch, a strip, a scrap of any kind of land!
No more than just to support a claw of one foot!
And nothing. Only water. Nothing except water.
Water water water.
If only a speck of land!
There is no salvation.
“vilifications of the measurements” = “curse of dimensionality”.

Always in lakes among the masterpieces
Either stars or pretty girls are bathing.
