Listening in Liverpool

me and my guitar, introducing my latest lyrics inspired by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742 – 1799)

my lyrics:
1 – NOISES
Let them all come, these noises.
You just have to keep quiet:
The barking dogs in all sorts of distances.
The sound of the bells in the biggest church in town.
John Lennon’s IMAGINE from the open porch door
of the girl next door.
In the football stadium in the next block
the mass roars: Goal!
A very bright cries of a child gang riding bicycles.
The birds in the tree outside my window
have a sudden quarrel, a fight, a battle.
The frogs in my pond louder
than the train in the distance.
The cell phone under the sofa cushions rumbles,
rumbles under the pillows…
It’s time to take up the inner thread again.
+
And the ferries cross the Mersey.
I’m in Liverpool, I’m in Liverpool.
