 .

The small, blue bird

There’s a small blue bird
That persecutes us a lifetime
And if we look back
We overlook it

Progress! Progress!
And cannot go back

Then it flies ahead of us
The small, blue bird
And do not see it
Do not see it
No more


Dreary city

In this dreary city
Where election posters are decoration
How important then are the elections
Red-green black-yellow
Not brown


Cologne

Pretty in pink
The fresh flowers on the cherry tree
And no petals on the ground
Eternal beauty for a day


Düsseldorf

Sunshine over Rhein’s waves
High heels on Rhein boardwalk
Jewelry as a shabby glow


Spring

When half-moon pulls higher again
Looking on clouds
Floated away by the wind
Then also sounds the first green


Again:

Immersion heater in the blood
Of history
Boiling to brown
Then spilling over
Tumbling over
Blazing fiercely everything
-: again


City idyll 

On the common land
Between brook and way
Sprouting canine manured
Nettle and dandelion

Dew rolling
Time flying
Human standing


Beech Forest 1

The young green of the beech forest
Unperforated by flowers
The sun feels good in it
And its green light



Beech Forest 2

Vegetating on charred, lifeless wood
Chafed by
Sweat of fear and tears of wrath
Left between the dead


Descent

After the conquered mountain peak
Now follows the descent
Step by step becomes harder
Onto the rest on anemones

Morticians
    morticians
Are
People
Without
Sense of
Smell
Otherwise
They had
Selected
    Another
Job




Morticians
    morticians
Are
People
With
A
Vocation
As
Graveyard gardener
Always
    Just
Keep the peace



Doubt
    we do not
Take
Pleasure
Doubting
If
We
Are
Or
Nothing
But a
Butterfly
Dereaming
    To be
Human




Evanescence
    also tears
Are
Subject to
The law
Of
Evanescence
They
Are
Wiped away
Or
    Just
Dry out

Shadows
    above
Grasslands
And
Fields
Scurry
Shadows
Of clouds
Like
Dead ships
But
    They do not
Fill

Orion
    Orion
Has
So
Broad
Shoulders
And
Narrow
Hips
Probably
He is
    The God
Of bodybuilding

Blue
    Then she
Donned
Her blue
Dress
And
Went
With the
Blue drink
Into the
Blue room
There she was
    "Finally
alone"

Chocolate
    A chocolate
Santa
Chocolate
Rabbit
And then
In addition
The
Golden hare
Nothing
Learned
    From the
Golden calf
