Rules for a game:: Κανόνες για ένα παιχνίδι

::Deutsch:: ::Македонски::

Tonight I am a dog

if you are a cat

and this will not mean more

than what is already implied

 

But don’t get confused and

believe in my faith

I dare you

to believe in my tongue

which remains persistent

Believe in my teeth – I’m warning you

and for sure

 

don’t believe in my tail

Make sure you avoid translating

the consistency of its height

or the preciseness of the rhythm

– it has nothing to do with happiness

 

I dare you to believe in my hunger

 

and above all else

believe

in my unforced

my bestial

intention

to sleep

at your feet
