Sampurna Chattarji: Not noose noose knot

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

The moment is coming loose from the hour
With the twang (the tang) of the string just-snapped
From the bow

Take heed now
There will be no second chance
Now or thirty-six-hundred seconds later

Sampurna Chattarji: Grace

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Crystals form under pressure
Under pressure the sycamore storms
There is no warning today
High tide will not coincide with heavy rain
We can safely hug the shores
Paddle our feet in the seas
Wade into the winds
Walk barefoot over the rocks
Knowing we will not be swept away
Inside every stone is a word
I am collecting them, slowly
So I can sink myself when it comes
The time of no tomorrow

Non limited oyster eating
stopped by the credit card:
An analogy of how we
experience God’s endlessness
infinitely often.

Kleines Lied: 2

Schlüpfts mir, dir an den Spitzenspritzen
Zwischen Hufeisen (Magneten).
Regst, lenkst Häute,
Dort perlt der Gesang zwischen
verdrehten Fusskettchen.

Zehentippen Hufeisen
Nimm auf die Haut
Fusskettchen, die sich verdrehen
Trippy-toes horse-shoes
Take it on the chin
Anklets twistingin

Sampurna Chattarji/ deutsche Worte: Nils Röller

Sampurna Chattarji: Survival

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

For tropical application only:
Unguents that labyrinth your skin
Into green hideouts
Where only the very agile
Hang out.
Say goodbye to the ground.
In the mossy air of Sog
You will find broken insects,
Whole sigmas of arboreal acclaim.
Hang in there.
Crustacean feelers are rarely wrong.
Before you branch out any further,
Find a hot, moist space, and stay,
Swinging from a creeper that will
Never let you down.

Sampurna Chattarji: Lush

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

How rich the flora of your gripping vines
You wear your bones on the outside
I will nestle there
Where the pelvis finds its pectoral fin
And swims across the sea of gently-
Pounding blood
That’s all I ask. A millennial sleep
My ear to the soil of your wildly-
Growing garden

(…which came to me seeing the Jan 18th post)

Sampurna Chattarji: Beherrschung*

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Ein sonnenreifer Moment, der
alles, was er hat, der einfachen Idee
der Weltbeherrschung schenkt,
indem er sich selbst
um den Ball seiner eigenen Herstellung wickelt,
in die Hände
eines einzigen Takts spielend,
einer Musik ohne Pfoten.

Sampurna Chattarji
