Is Fire Your Favourite Haunting?

A poem from Rune Kjær Rasmussen


You have to be alone
for a long time
to see if you are one
who is suitable for that
you have to be alone
for a long time
to see if you think
loneliness is an illusion
or not.

Freedom is lightning
creating ghosts or rather
wringing them free
from rocks, freedom is lightning
creating ghosts
who will haunt themselves
until the house is burned down

You have to be alone
for a long time
to see if you are a flame
suited to be that.
You have to be alone
for a long time
to see if you think
fire is a worthy
haunting of yourself.
