"Hommage à Cornelis Vreeswijk". Acrylics and permanent marker on manipulated paper. Mounted on acrylics on manipulated paper. 2017. Around A3 size

Jag är en tvivelaktig figur
duger ej mycket till
Bakom ett hörn står döden på lur
han tar mig när han vill

The writing is in Swedish. A quote from Cornelis Vreeswijk, "Somliga går med trasiga skor":

In English (a verbatim translation is virtually impossible as this is poetry, but this is close):

I am a dubious character
not fit for much
Death awaits around some corner
he takes me when he wants to
