They said ‘Cheers!’ On the road One line on their blank eyes Loads of songs in the sky The trees let go and ask the old poets :
« Why the grass coming up ? »
But they knew… The pines kept hearing Hearing the earth’s pain About love,
« What love ? » Just a scream « Can you hear it ? »
Yes, Open your chest, Let’s the humming-bird on your Suck your feelings, make your honesty And your majesty and eat your villainy At this moment, humans are operational To talk about « love », If not the humming-bird will drown Drown in a pound of beer.
A poem by Victor Cabras
