Poesieautomaten: Frische Gedichte

Eine lyrische Raumin(ter)vention von Matthias Göritz

Joanneumsviertel, Graz, Austria

May, 2021 

As a winner of the Writer of the City of Graz scholarship, I was invited to be a part of the Poetry vending machine project : a lyric space in(ter)vention by Matthias Göritz. For this occasion, I wrote a poem which can be bought as a fresh poem for 50 cents from vending machines in Graz.

The Graz Vigil – La Strada Festival

Schlossberg hill, Graz, Austria

5th December 2020 

As a winner of the Writer of the City of Graz scholarship, I took part in the The Graz Vigil project, created by Joanne Leighton, and spent an hour watching the city from the wood installation on Schlossberg, during an early December morning sunrise. After spending an hour there, I was supposed to write something about what I had seen and I wrote a short poem. 

ovako nastaju pjesme 

vratiću se kući

naoštriću sve bojice

a onda ću konačno

napisati pjesmu o džezu

so entstehen gedichte

ich werde zurück nach hause gehen

alle buntstifte schärfen

und dann werde ich endlich

das gedicht über jazz schreiben
