Mannequins - Poem by Mikael Ejdemyr

The mannequins turn their back on me and walk away they visit Amsterdam and smoke a pipe three steps from Morocco they worship and fill the streets with their hot hips from Finland sootflakes drifting miles away the mannequins sing with a kittenish gaze: 'money is everything work like a fool and run to India run to Death or to the beech forests by the sea! ' shuffling steps behind me: 'is it open? ' a bent old woman's hoarse voice she points at a basement door and steps carefully down the stairs to a newly formed layman church a powerful missionary voice when she opens: 'is it the Textile Museum that is on fire? ' dashing dance music from above a place called The Canopy
