Je suis Ziggy

I am also a thin white duke

since my early childhood

when I was four

people cheered:

– what a cute little girl!

it was probably my hair

silky and white

natural born white clown

without makeup

now I have no hair

standing there in front of the world

wearing my snow-white meat cap

complete with plastic saxophone

and sad eyes

I am also a thin white duke

I also look great in slim-fitting suits and shoulder pads

though I am not from London or Berlin

or have any chance of dying in New York City

I demand my right to attention

watch the remains of my silky hair

watch my snow-white complexion

my ashes to ashes beard

as gray as the melting ice

outside

I am also a thin white duke

and you know it when you see me

there is no doubt

cooked asparagus comes to one’s mind

when looking at my wrists

when I sing small children run away

and do not fear for your wives and daughters

they find me deeply uninteresting

I can only sit here with my cone hat

and my pink ruff

and imagine myself far away

alone in orbit

with my protein supplements and my spiders

a lonely heathen

I am also a thin white duke

when karkinos grabs me

and I dwindle away

when I can no longer breathe

or eat solid food

when veteran tom bows out

and hangs the slim-fitting suit back in the closet

puts his plastic saxophone down

and lifts his cone hat one last time

I too will disappear into oblivion

but until then

lets dance

china girl

I’m a lucky guy. Found out by using simple math.

1) I have a psychiatric diagnosis. According to statistics this takes 20 years off my life expectancy.

2) I’m an alcoholic. According to statistics this takes 24 years off my life expectancy.

3) I’m a smoker. According to statistics this takes 20 years off my life expectancy.

The average life expectancy in Denmark is 79,8 years. Let’s round up to 80.

Now, do the math yourself.

Yes, result is, I should have died at 16.

I am today 46 years of age.

I totally rule in the beating death game!
