“Photopresso ☕”: One photo, one bad poem

2021

#1: “The Olymp”
olymp portaapotty mobile toilet

A name appropriate as it is inappropriate
A construction worker ascending onto his heavenly throne
Sweet release after a hearty meal
The man inside standing on the shoulder of giants;
who made this mundane plastic box possible
A true Olymp of ingenuity

#2: “Odd Box”

An Odd Box
only the Initiated know
power, communication or bulk mail
a canvas for the Creative or Destructive

a grey box on the street
#3: “Yellow Snake”
berlin tram line m10 at nordbahnhof

Yellow Snake
Gorging on the busy, the drunk and the merry
a ritual every Friday morning
I miss it

#4: “Go n’ Grow”

Go n’ Grow
Bee Vision
Striped Flutter
Keep Away

a sign with flowers
#5: “Coral Reef Bike”
coral bike

Patrick was here
left all his color on this bike
to impress a girl with it
have a nice ride

#6: “Survival”

Survival on stone
Humans build
Creepers thrive
they must wonder why we continue

creeper vines
#7: “War, War never changes.”
sign post

A waste of time
but one that made me
what I am today

#8: “Wooosh”

someone told me
yellow is a color we rarely use
but this city’s life depends on yellow

#9: “Hold on!”
a checkered sign (hold on)

#10: “Empty Opportunity

torn off
but still screwed
an empty opportunity
is nothing

broken bench
#11: “Memories”

Do we travel for memories or experiences
or to forget the boredom
If you do not feel the need for travel
then you are ready to truly explore

#12: “Old and New”

out of the old station
into the new office
both have the same heritage

office buildings
#13: “Car Lot”

car lot, what an adventurous place
but today, more parents and children on the playground
premium living and cargo bikes
was everything better in the past?
I think our adventures were

#14: “”Raise your hand for testing”

Hands up, testing!
only 119,90 € next day delivery
the indulgence of the hypochondriac
safe and clean

#15: “Gothic”

Gothic
Conference
1000 years

#16: “Feuerbach-Triptych”

Going down together
Designing together
Eating together

2022

#17: “This is something”

We must do something.
This is something.
Therefore, we must do this.

#18: “Compartmentalization”

Light Tube End Point
Our Brain
There are connections behind
So watch out

#19: “Move upwards for great taste”

Cathedrals of Mobility
Temples of Commerce
Halls of Fast Food
A modern train station

#20: “Postal Service”

Postal Service
they used to be everywhere
now only yellow trucks
delivering brown smiling boxes

#21: “A calm place to be”

Noise all around
Cars, trucks, trains and sirens
Calmness in chaos

#22: “Here we go”

Here we go
Day after day
enjoyable steps
into office routine
