Haiku (II)

 

Yes, we read Nietzsche

for indeed nothing at all.

Our results are null.

Poem (IX)

 

For whom do we write?

 

We write for bookstores,

Libraries, journals,

And street vendors who resemble

The painters from the eighties.

 

Also, we write for the big databases,

Online book retailers,

Blogs, portals, statistics,

Not to forget social networks.

 

We write for everybody and nobody,

To increase our visibility,

And redeem ourselves in the eyes

Of the so-called public.

 

We would write for readers as well

If they were not too busy

Writing on their own.
