Michaël Drake

Michaël Drake fæddist árið 1841 -ef til vill 1441- undir stjörnuhimni Fiskanna, úti á miðju hafi og mitt í hrognamáli. Ekki er vitað hverra manna hann er en hann tilheyrir ekki neinu landi því hann hefur aldrei öðlast neitt vegabréf, fékk aldrei skurðarskírn og fæddist munaðarlaus á skipi. Reyndar þykir honum hann hvergi eiga heima nema þar sem hann les upp ljóð.

Michaël Drake segist sjá lífið í grænu og rauðu og þess vegna drekkur hann ekkert annað en vín. Hann elskar að fá hlýtt þjórfé í vasann en yrkir og performerar aðeins til þess að hefna sín á samfélaginu. Hann er engillinn og ormurinn í sama holdinu.

Michaël Drake was born the year 1841 -perhaps 1441- under the sky of Pisces, in the middle of the ocean and sailor slurs. ‘Tis not known which people he is akin to and he belongs to no land since he never obtained a passport, was never circumcised, and came to this world on a ship. As a matter of fact, he has never felt that he’s had a home – except where he is reading a poem.

Michaël Drake says he sees life in green and red and therefore he drinks nothing but than wine. He loves to feel the clinking of change (tips, of course) in his pocket, but he composes and performs only to vindicate himself from society. He both the angel and the snake in the same flesh.
