I think manilla creates cool poetry. It inspired me to search for my little poetry book that I made in 1991, with several poets I wrote in the period 1982 – 1989. (Yes, that many years ago :wink: ). They are in Dutch, but I will try giving them a proper English translation.

Just a few examples:

Verzet

steeds
uitglijdend
in een cyclus
van slapeloze tijden
is er soms
die verleiding
mijzelf
stil te zetten
om
voortaan
willoos
verder
te
gaan

Resistance

all the time
slipping
in a cycle of sleepless times
there is sometimes
that temptation
to stop
myself
and
continue
numb
and
without
any
will
