Words
 
Between bed and bath
It overtakes me,
looks into the mirror before me
and lets run
in steady stream
the words
I don‘t want,
don‘t know,
don‘t understand.
 
At the breakfast table
when I gulp down my coffee
It‘s already there
pouring out new nourishment:
words, phrases, words
in steady flux.
 
On my way to work
It accompanies me in the car
running clear through my thoughts
overlaying the reactions to traffic
and suddenly stops -
just in time
before I switch off the engine
take my bag and the keys
to start work
undisturbed.
 
For now I escaped
the words,
the phrases and verse
that rule over me
from dawn to work
and from dusk into sleep.

In Krollebolles Reich: Märchen von Irene Beddies



Irene Beddies hat in diesem Band ihre Märchen für Jugendliche und Erwachsene zusammengestellt.
Vom Drachen Alka lesen wir, von Feen, Prinzen und Prinzessinnen, von kleinen Wesen, aber auch von Dummlingen und ganz gewöhnlichen Menschen, denen ein wunderlicher Umstand zustößt.
In fernen Ländern begegnen dem Leser Paschas und Maharadschas. Ein Rabe wird sogar zum Rockstar.
Auch der Weihnachtsmann darf in dieser Gesellschaft nicht fehlen.

Mit einer Portion Ironie, aber auch mit Mitgefühl für die Unglücklichen, Verzauberten wird erzählt.
