    DE PERS OVER LAATSTE BEDRIJF: 

    "Jef van Kempen is bekender als schrijver van verhalen (…) dan als dichter. Ten onrechte. In zijn rijke en fraai geïllustreerde bundel toont hij zijn veelzijdigheid en belezenheid. Grimmige poëzie, waarin de somberheid en woede alleen in toom worden gehouden door ironie."

    (Brabants Dagblad, Miekse van Eck, 3 januari 2013)

    Julia Origo poetry: Witness

     

    Julia Origo

    (1965-2005)

    W i t n e s s

     

    s t a g e   o n e


    I have seen many eagles

    in recent years

    so different

    like a date without desteny

     

    s t a g e  t w o


    and when you give up

    -perhaps that’s the deal-

    like all that died before

    you get old

    at any age

     

    s t a g e  t h r e e


    then this misunderstanding

    full of promise of modern fable

    of a missing link

    between age and mind

    between losing home

    and losing time


    between you

    and him

     

    (London 1985)

    Julia Origo poetry: Observations

     

    Julia Origo

    (1965 – 2005)

    O b s e r v a t i o n s

     

    Thoughts and observations on man and nature:

    my mental temperament is highly developed,

    if you were a gentleman you’d offer me a ride

    and hear the satisfaction in my voice,

    maybe I would blush, every now and then,

    maybe not,

    maybe I’ll write a poem.

     

    (From: Transfusion, 1987)

    Julia Origo poetry: Suicide

    Suicide

     

    Rage

    in a flash

    damaged

    by misfortune and eager,

    all the worst losses and woes of life,

    examine her regrets,

     

    just an attempt at genuine connection

    (winters and summers)

    at times, struggling to hear,

    she leans forward,

    face creasing with concentration,

    eyes searching.

     

    How Did It Come To This?

    Julia Origo poetry: Saints

     

    Saints

     

    what

    happened to Joan

    of Arc? who disappeared

    during the night maybe you saw

    that brief controversy: The Red Death

    The Red Death, The Final Blast,

    Saint Joan, I remember

    at least one

    more

    time.

    Julia Origo poetry: Bad girl

     

    Bad girl

     

    Pity those poor Italian men,

    out of reach,

    (oh, celibacy in despair!)

    but they never look sorry

    (why?)

    I was invisible to the man on the street

    I told him that I was really excited

    (born one second after midnight

    on New Year’s Day)

    a self-absorbed, thumb-sucking bad girl,

    beware your wildest dreams…

     

    Rain fell like nails upon us,

    I seduce his father who flirts with his seatmate

    on a long plane flight.

    I had always wanted a real man

    (always the same face)

    as I knew better than to offer him to pay

    for he can watch his family from

    beyond the grave

    (sad news of the death, oh yes,

    the theft of childhood and

    the dangers to the young, oh yes)

     

    delve deeper into Celebrating Possibility

    and an engaging sense

    of

    pale

    naked

    PAIN.

     

    It made no difference.

    Julia Origo: Portrait of E.

    J u l i a   O r i g o
     

    Portrait of E.


    The short and desperate life of E.

    (the girl nobody noticed on November 4th 1990)

    rubbing shoulders, smiling dreamily,

    with a thought bubble above her head saying:

    “I said I would NOT tear up”.

     

    E. tied a ligature around her neck,

    strangled herself in a similar fashion

    as many times before.

    Although on suicide watch,

    in the short time she was unobserved

    she did ENOUGH to starve herself of oxygen,

    trigger brain damage.

     

    In a vegetative state,

    transferred to hospital,

    she would not recover

    A nightmare of guilt to follow.

    A decision to switch her off

    life support was made seven days later.

     

    THE END

    justifies the means.

     

    (Suicide is the act of deliberately killing oneself. Risk factors for suicide include mental disorder, such as depression, personality disorder, alcohol dependence, or schizophrenia, and some physical illnesses, such as neurological disorders, cancer, and HIV infection. There are effective strategies and interventions for the prevention of suicide.)
