Laus Strandby Nielsen: 'Åbenbaring'




I wake up in pitch darkness,

move like a proficient robot

through the darkness, out

in the bathroom I switch

on the light, it is five

minutes past six.

it is 6 October,

I have a revelation:

I’m not on board, I’m

still in June, it is

not only the eyes

that adapt more slowly

as years pass, such

paradoxically is

what it is like

to get older and wiser

in sudden fits and starts.
