Before The Game

Vasko Popa

Shut one eye then the other 
Peek into every corner of yourself 
See that there are no nails no thieves 
See that there are no cuckoo's eggs 

Shut then the other eye 
Squat and jump 
Jump high high high 
On top of yourself 

Fall then with all your weight 
Fall for days on end deep deep deep 
To the bottom of your abyss 

Who doesn't break into pieces 
Who remains whole gets up whole 
Plays
