Tombstone Tales 002: Bruges-la-Morte


The poem was inspired by the short poetic novel Bruges-la Morte, by Georges Rodenbach. Listen while you read to this Very Slow and Spooky French Cancan...

Only the dead are dancing


through the living

rooms


when evening is falling

and grey people are put to rest

in peace


in houses
 

and shallow shadows
 

of past centuries
 


wondering stoned
 

as a statue.









 


Listen well

and hear a voice

whispering behind a hatch



about a past


tense not fully




completed
