Example text

56 The truth must not be conspicuous, I put long pauses between the words. I sweat and I earn a living writing rejected plays. If the older generation praises me it's strictly faute de mieux; the young people ridicule my white gloves, they want to see blood. I can hear them already, standing around the excavated hole: God, if he had only committed himself! As if I hadn’t protested against lies from the very beginning. 57 Nicht mehr gewillt Ist es wahr, wir verknochern? Dauert der Frieden schon zu lange?

Kein Pardon. 3 Stadte, ihr werdet wieder durchschaubar werden. Der Traum vom Einfachen geht durchs Feuer. 4 In verbarrikadierten Hausern nimmt das Geld noch einmal die Gestalt der Renaissance an. 5 Strick und Grube fur bevorzugte Falle. Uns wird man liegenlassen auf dem Pflaster. 36 Utopian Poems 1 Citizen war, in the end you will be the last citizen. 2 Streetfights between the races, the birthdays, the genitals, the pages of one and the same book. No pardon given. 3 Cities, you will again become transparent.

An outline appears before clear but marked eyes. Inexorability does not exist. 43 Madrigal In unserm W interquartier treiben wir den Winter aus Treiben wir den Winter aus an Rhein und Donau auf dem verdorbnen Feld Beisst auch wie Schrot der Schnee Wehr dich nur Antichrist Wir treiben Feuer bergan Madrigal In our winter quarters we expel the winter Drive the winter out near Rhine and Danube on the spoilt field And if the snow bites like shot defend yourself, Antichrist We drive fire up the mountain 45 Fliegendes Blatt Getauscht Getauscht Du bist nicht du Zur Zeit des Sternezersingens Getauscht Zur Zeit wenn die Morder ausruhn Getauscht Des Nachts beim Schleichen zu knarrenden Schiffen Oder du warst nicht du 46 Flying Leaflet Deceived Deceived You are not yourself When the stars are sung to shreds Deceived When the assassins relax Deceived At night silently moving toward creaking ships Or you were not yourself 47 Einfache Satze aus dem Jahr 68 1 Jemand lasst durchblicken, dass er gegen die Zeit ist.
