Tarek Lakhrissi, “Prelude for Serpent Dream”, 2019
23.5 – 24.7.2019

Things I didn’t say
Things I didn’t show
Welcome to this funeral
Of lost feelings
Tongues tied
And evil spirits

I came to free a bird
The bird of Future
A bright bright bright
Future

What do you have in mind
A snake is eating all the
Good ideas
Do you feed him
With fear
Or do you want to
Wear
This new skin

I swear
I saw a scar in my memories
But it was fake
Just another snake
An animal
Maybe something else
Maybe that was
You?

There are so many things
I didn’t say
I didn’t feel
I didn’t show

Because life is frightening
Life is so big
And i feel small

But today my tongue
Is Blue
It says I love you
It smiles
It opens many
Different narratives

Are you
Ready
Open
Close enough
To
Listen

And wait
For my breath
To finish

Another sad
And funny story

Are you ready
Are you ready

There are so many words
I couldn’t say
I couldn’t think about
I couldn’t show any coulours

My rage is Blue
And Bright

My rage keeps me
Awake
Again
Awake
Awake
Awake
Awake

Aware of
Pink flamingos
Cards games

And the way you
Hurt
Me.
