SIEN (she was the prostitute he lives with for a while. 's Gravenhage - the Netherlands 1883)

Stille once he looked back to her,
her white cap on deepblack
hair, loosely girlish
of sometimes knotted.

The thin tit with which she suckled,
her bony body, where he found warmth
and how she threw out her shoe
at the fireplace, smoking a cigar.

But he did not find a parting word
and she kept on staring
darkly past him.

He only thougt -it is over,
you shall go around again, ogle,
give birth, Sientje, you girl, you.-


SIEN ( Shoo Away Crows)

Nog eenmaal keek hij naar haar om:
haar witte muts op kachelzwarte
haren, meisjesachtig los
of met een wrong.

De magere mem waarmee ze zoogde,
haar benig lijf waarbij hij warmte vond
en hoe zij bij het vuur een schoen
uitschopte, sigaartje rookte.

Maar vond er geen woord van afscheid bij en zij
bleef donker langs hem staren.

Hij dacht alleen -het is voorbij,
jij zult weer rondgaan, lonken
baren, Sientje...jij...jij.-
