Mile Lisica, If I turn off the TV

If I turn off the TV

Don’t tell me about love
I miss everything

The dark is on the streets and lips
Fish swims under the table

Only duct tape moondinners letters
On the wallpapers of your room

Keep silent
Nibbled by the street
Provoked by the last pixel of the image

If I turn off the TV
I will forget

And It will be late
And it’s late

To look for you on the corners
From head to toe
