till we close
he always has a serious look on his face

which he throws into the trash can.
A NOTE I FOUND ON MY OLD FRIEND MATS' COMPUTER WHICH HE HAD WRITTEN FOR THE COMPUTER GUY
Sometimes nothing happens when I turn on the computer
Sometimes I get to see the blue HP-page
Sometimes I can go on but then it freezes for a while
Sometimes it makes a hell of a noise and then it works pretty well
short before it freezes
And something is wrong with my TV-card
because the picture has been lousy since the first day
So there might be something with the fan, the graphic card and the TV-card.

THE SPIDER IN THE LIVING ROOM
The spider in the living room
walks like I would have
if I'd been a spider.
The fly in the kitchen
flies like I would have
if I'd been a fly in the kitchen.
The car on its way to the country house
runs like I would have
if I'd been a car.
The woods lie
like I would have
if I'd been the woods.
Even the computer in the office
stands there as we would have stood
if we'd been computers in the office.
