(04.12.14) – I am the Sun of Youth
First inspired by Allen Ginsberg’s Kral Majales.

And I am the Sun of Youth round and fat
Buddha sighing
I am the Sun of Youth lean and boned
boy-shaped man suspended in mourning
and I am the Sun of Youth exploding clouded skies
skimming ozoned minds with UV-waves
sweeping radio faces shock-wave burnt
bored and dry’


(16.09.14) – Silvana Imam, hip-hop and the Swedish elections.
‘‘Och ni kan trycka paus om ni inte kan hantera hybrisen’ [And you can press pause if you can’t handle the hubris]

Sunday morning, 14.09.2014, there’s a slight overcast dulling Bristol’s sky, the tea is brewing and on the other side of the North Sea history might be written.

Yesterday was election day in Sweden; a country often associated with Scandi-utopian politics – free healthcare, free education, historically liberal immigration policies and a place where hearing the gender-neutral pronoun ‘hen’ in daily conversation doesn’t turn heads anymore.’
