      Five Poems from Unearthly Companion

       

       

       

      Ghost Story

       

       

      He often came to the villa.

      He was my doctor,

      and a nice fellow, I thought.

      But now I'm on the other side of the grave.

       

      He came to see only my young wife,

      whose shiny hair matches

      her skin, heavenly fair.

      With the potion he gave me, I know now,

      he had only one aim:

      to put me to death.

       

      They are sitting at the table, having dinner,

      in fancy clothes, and from fancy plates

      that I paid for.

      I see them very well,

      as I'm right here.

      I came back

      and I will scare them to death.

      Ruler

       

       

      I am the ruler of all the armies,

      and the transport lines,

      the data streams, the food supplies...

      All that is important belongs to me.

       

      I am the most powerful of all,

      and I decide upon your faith.

      Countless servants I have,

      people and machines,

      but I serve none.

      You have to hack into me

      to make me love you.

      Healer

       

       

       

       

       

      The old man led him in,

       

      such a long time was spent waiting,

       

      and now he is here,

       

      a guest much loved and respected.

       

      He is led to a child's sickbed,

       

      a little girl admired by his grandpa.

       

      A tiny hand, a barely heard sigh.

       

       

       

       

      Sitting with his guitar in the hand,

       

      he starts to play.

       

      The magic starts to work,

       

      and, before the break of dawn,

       

      the little girl is cured.

      Clarissa

       

       

      I don't have a clever daughter

      or a naughty son,

      as I cannot give birth to a child.

      I'm not capable of making love, either.

      I cannot walk outside and

      breathe fresh air.

      I cannot touch the surface of the grass.

      I am confined.

       

      At least, I can feel

      like anyone else,

      and the thinking I do much faster.

      That's why they created me,

      and I love them for it,

      even though it's all clear to me.

      As soon as they have the new version,

      they will erase me,

      and I'll disappear for ever.

      I wonder where I will go.

      Trial

       

       

      Rightful or unjust?

      It's the place of claims

      and pleas and lies.

      Questions reverberate

      on the corridors of the mind.

      The hall is crowded

      and all want to

      get into the court room.

       

      It's the place where I defended

      rapists, crooks,

      the man-eater

      and the vivisector.

      But who will defend me,

      the most terrible monster of all?

       

      A long row of corpses turn up,

      they were all called to testify.
