3 tooth
near the cemetery in a yellow house lives an old woman
if you pick a flower for her she will give you candy
in a big house up the hill lives a man known from TV
if you bring him a dead animal he will bury it for you
near the woods on a farm live two brothers
one of them has a common name
the other one has an indian name


january
the last room
i put my sweater on and go down to the river


hotdogs and Popcorn
today 4 hippos swam straight through my heart
riding an underwater wall of death in slow motion
around and around
a few minutes later we had hotdogs and popcorn
and talked about sharp fences


happy endings
there is a white horse on the beach
it is made of glossy plastic and has beautiful long nylon hair…
“excuse me, is it yours?”


smoke
there must be over 30 cats in this house
i wonder who lived there first
look he comes out
maybe he is dangerous
or maybe just a little drunk
there is a dead pig in the backyard
later we all get to taste a piece of bacon


i am learning how to swim
they have dropped me off in the middle of the ocean
i must learn fast before the sharks smell my blood


social skills
i'm lying still on the ground
In the distance I hear voices
Someone please roll me over and take the knife out of my chest


i am howling
a snake has stolen my glove
i am howling
a snake has set me up
that's really not a nice thing to do
now my left hand is cold and pale
we will end up in hell for this
i am howling for myself


wednesday
smoking cigarettes in the cemetery

thursday
catching eels in silence
22 eels to be precise
they lie in a red bucket and squirm
it's getting dark
no more bait
we take the bikes and head home

friday
there is a helicopter outside my window
i have my helmet on

TELEVISION PICKUP Copenhagen, Denmark

Half electric half acoustic, Television Pickup is an android cinema orchestra playing songs from films you wish you had seen. Haunting melodies covered in dirt, broken in pieces and served with a straw.
