It is important to state, a poem by Kobus Moolman

It is important to state
that this is not a dream, much less a
skylight for bats to fly in and out of,
it is a porn site, an advertisement for
virgin air, uncontaminated by language,
it is a removal van taking boxes and boxes
of superfluous words, memories of birthday
cakes with candles and three-legged races,
it is important to state that this is none
of the above, when confronting a ladder
in the middle of a field, when confronted
with the footprints of a fish at the top
of the ladder, the ladder that makes the
sound of a hole dropping through language
into the excess of any of the oceans.

Kobus Moolman
