Verboten!

The friend who seven years ago sent me the Pippi book re-emerges from her dark woods of Canada, starts a creative challenge on Facebook and calls Verboten as the theme. Dog forbid I say no.

Verboten!

To love more than.
To love too early.
To love still.

Verboten! 

To show nipples.
To not show code.
To wag tail. 

Verboten!

To play.
To lay. 
To shit on the right. 

Verboten! 
To be the wrong gender,
wrong race,
wrong species. 

Verb
bot
ten.
“Forbidden for dogs.”
The opposite,
the better word,
right?

Leave!
Let!
Allow! 

But also
lasciate ogni speranza.
Abandon all hope.
“Who enters dies.”

This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
