The year in boots







                  the new year  stepped in our lives with its

                  heavy boots on





                  that's ok, after all, it could have turned back

                  on the porch

                  or


                  left the shoes on the doormat and tiptoed

                  silently past you,

                  then no regrets would make sense, there


                  would be no one to put all the blame on




                  neither fortune-tellers nor the editors of

                  horoscope columns would earn a living





                  if the year took off his boots

                  the cat would come out of the bag and the

                  heel would appear in a sock hole,


                  it might even turn out that, suprisingly, we

                  are deprived of shoes, even slippers,

                  not to mention spurs,


                  robes, faces, conscience
