Nine violet roses,
The colour of Vanish detergent,
And a white vase,
Bought in Tesco, made in China,
Made my day in Český Krumlov today.
Nourishment for the soul,
As Khalil Gibran recommends.
/He drank too much./
I bought pasta, pesto and parmigiano,
And a bottle of red wine too.
All our yesterdays will be recorded here soon.
“Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow…” –
‘Sound and fury’ of tourists in Český Krumlov –
And I hope – perhaps in vain – it will signify something.
