Boring Antisocial Rats

We’re two boring antisocial rats. We don’t fit here: your home is racist, mine is also biased. Call the exterminator back. We’re unpopular rats: we’ve got no tonnes of followers and we don’t post our daily diet, which means we’ve got no social life. Block us and tag an influencer to get more likes. We…

Look, El!

Always East! Even in the West. East London. Vibrant. Diverse. Exotic. Growing. Traditional. Magical. Too much happened there, El. Some things you want to forget, some you want to revive. But all is part of you. What a view: 24 floors, his face, fingers rolling cigarettes, herbs, purple storms, maze of buildings, quiet bays, and…

Marriage Scene

Knowing that your marriage won’t last is like a boring film. You’ve paid for it but are already thinking of another scene. Darkness, uncomfortable seats, cold air and crunching noises. You want to leave. But many people in the row – you have to wait till its end. At least there’s popcorn. And an alcoholic…

El & the Spirits of the Wind

El’s heart is like a feather floating on fluffy dreams in the clouds. There are sudden falls when she turns into a storm and aims to hit you – not only with thunder words but lightning acts. There are rainbow days when she needs hugs. Rainbow like a peacock. Peacocks?! Never imagined there’d be peacocks…

Sunday Colours

Children’s books, puzzles and a snowy mess. Two languages. One dictionary – all translates as Love. Your baby talk – more meaningful than my writing gibberish. New generation. You won’t know the secrets of our old cassettes. But still, I sing to you like Barbalala. Join me in duet, and swing, my monkey, in your…

Winter Lonelyland

The sun and the snow outside are playing. But watch out for cars, you winter kids – people might leave puddles of mud on your kissing lips. It’s quiet. Just occasional noises. Is it the ice sliding down its frozen slide, or a snowman shoveling its feet? I’d like to feel the lunch rays. But…

Hitchhiker’s Tow-EL

El returned. Lovely Europe – no surprise Zeus craved his lover, the mother of a continent. The New World stole her heart, so El had to find it back. “Leave home. Go East!” He came and stayed with her. Just two souls who tried to overcome the colorful loneliness of the universe. “Be serious!”, he…

Coded Bathroom

Red code. Mind our bathroom. Octopuses fighting turtles. Frogs swimming with penguins. Wet panties, smell of nappies. Where’s the mousse? The moose, you mean?! The aroma of my Bulgarian roses can’t overcome the steam. Red code. Baby bath and laughter. Another heart drawn on the mirror of our dreams. Romantic? I’ll clean the glass doors,…

El’s Black &White Colours

Colours. It’s her OCD theme for the day. You know what I mean: just like when you juggle letters on number plates. El shared a picture of Corfu and named it Colours. Now, the colour buds of her heart are sharing some black and white thoughts mixed in the palette of life. White. The fMRI…

Equilibrium

Equilibrium. Smiles and hidden thoughts. Alcohol and no communication. Passports and more gas. You and I balance on her beauty.        

Do you like salt, El?

Do you know the story of the Princess who loved her father like salt? The moral is that all the small and basic stuff matter. But do we appreciate the salt on our tables? Do you like salt, El? People consume. Like the orange curry you didn’t like. Maybe you needed something less bitter. Not…

2018

It’s almost time to say goodbye. The news – genocide, disasters, death. Just like my soul. I hurt, destroy and rot behind the prison of my soul. They take me for granted, now, my tears have dried and I do the same. Friends – a word from the past. They whisper scary tales, I keep…
