Poem by the Danish poet
Michael Strunge

Speed of life

Smash the clock
with my thoughts –
I only live
at the speed of life

Swiftly change
to a new disguise –
I need transformations
at the speed of life

Form contrasts
need no camouflage –
sick and tired of
not being myself

Change colour
anarchist chameleon –
throw off my mask
change life-form

My mind
grows out of my head –
changed minds
after having been dead

it would seem I now know –
that I do not have
an indestructible self

Who knows
knows what one’s self is like?
I couldn’t care less
myself create myself

Change speed
I need a change of speed –
I transform my life
before it transforms me
