This was filmed for Omrop Fryslân on the 5th of december in Leeuwarden during a Poetry evening. Below you can read the English translation of the poem by David Colmer:
she lives in a burning house every storm takes a tile from the roof it's cold her teeth chatter someone outside thinks up new rules for traffic an old man cycles on newspapers stuffed under his clothes she walks out with a basket full of washing black sheets black blankets black pillowcase she sees the fields are burning too no point in going out it's better back inside the walls flames dancing on his portrait letters fall unasked through the door rustling down not reaching the mat her cat jumps onto her lap with a vegetable desire to be stroked she pours more meths over the photo albums wipes the ash from her glasses and reads and reads and reads
