“Caught in thoughts”

Den 8. november 2019

(Læsetid 2. min)

Du kan her nedenunder høre mig læse digtet “Caught in thoughts” højt, som jeg stillede op og vandt med i “Ubud Writers & Readers Festival Poetry Slam 2019”.

Lyden er lav, da mit tech-udstyr her i Vietnam, hvor jeg befinder mig lige nu, ikke er helt optimalt. Så husk høretelefoner. Du kan finde digtet i sin skriftlige form under videoen.

God fornøjelse kære ven…

Caught in thoughts

I am thinking a thought

The thought that I think is that I am thinking a thought

I have to pee

I see

That’s my thought

I think it’s a thought

Me and my thoughts. I’m thinking – It’s just a thought

I think

What if I don’t think? Im thinking

Then I will be free of that thought

It’s a thought

Is everything a thought led from another thought?

In my dorm room a spider is spinning its web over my head while im laying down in my bed

Connecting one thread to another thread leading to the next

Creating a maze of threads as its home

Expanding. Not stopping. Keep producing the next and the next and the next

Does it ever stop to think a thought?

Interesting thought

What was the first thought I thought?

I think after thinking the next thought, I must have forgot the first thought, I think

I have to pee. More

I have thought that before. Haven´t I?

But this is a new thought

Before two different thoughts, I thought two identical thoughts

The previous thought I have forgot

But it was a thought

I think thoughts

Am I my thoughts?

I think so

So why not stop thinking

Think about stop thinking. Think. Help. I think

I think I need help

I feel trapped in that thought

Caught

In my head

In my own spider web
