Black Dog! Suicide! What is ur .. Insanity .. I ask .. ?

Poem by Marc Aupiais

Darkness! You call it! It takes you!
Again! The Black Dog!
The Bitter Omen! In your hope!

I look at you! Lying there!
Bed all messed!
Mattress out!
No! They said you had no sheets!
Just ..
The mattress!
Nothing else!
In your flat!

You taught me once!
Afrikaans!
But now you are gone ..
And they whisper how!
They said you did it!
Money or the Black Dog!

And then the garage owner!
Before you!
And that other man I knew!

And another and another!
What Is Your Insanity!
What stopped your heart?

Stopped so many hearts!

And you are the Black Dog!


It did Bark! It ought not Bark!
