Sometimes a train can pass above the roofs

Liège (B)

Cooling down the coke

"Im Wasser ist Kühlung, im Wasser ist's kalt,
Das Wasser löscht brennende Herzen wohl bald,
Tief unten im Wasser, da ist es wohl gut,
So komm' denn mein Liebchen mit mir in die Fluth."

(L. Feldman in Die Flamme)
Liège (B)

The joy of animals in the middle of demolition

"I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God..."

(W. Whitman in Song of Myself, no. 32)
Aachen (D)

The wall as a wave

“The iron hand it ain’t no match for the iron rod
The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a mighty God …”

(Bob Dylan in When he returns)
Rocourt (B)

No more working, no more parking

“I’ll always thank the Lord
When my working day’s through
I get my sweet reward
To be alone with you.”

(Bob Dylan in To be alone with you)
