CHASING GAME

As I was chasing snails I was planting cheak-peas.
What game is and means at the verge of maturity
The transition to the maturity is reflected on reflection-games
that are secured on the ground with weights

I inhale as a baby - I age as I exhale
I sleep
Curled up in my armchair
Embryo in the first embrace
I wake up
I wash well to wash out the baby from on top of me
I wear proudly my manly clothes
I leave
I return
I’m pouring myself again in the traces I left behind
Curled in my armchair
Embryo in the first embrace
Entrance - exit
I inhale as a baby - I age as I exhale

 

As I was chasing snails I was planting chickpeas (Game)
Part 1
1. After a strong rain we gather snails from the fields.
2. We pick a good spot in our garden and we fence it circularly. This is the arena.
Inside it we place the snails.
3. We take a slingshot and an equal amount of chickpeas and snails.
Part 2
1. We water our arena until the ground turns into mud.
2. As soon as the snails awaken and move, we aim carefully and shoot at them with force all our
chickpeas.
Part 3
1. We water frequently our arena. Naturally every time we water, the
chickpeas grow and the snails we didn’t hit come out to feed.
2. We gather the chickpeas and every plant that has not been eaten.
3. We plant them back to the ground and we chase the snails again.
4. This game continues throughout the years until either the snails disappear or the chickpeas.
