Dreams on a wall

"And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose slowly, slowly,
The light of my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky,
The wall."

(J.M. Langston Hughes in As I grew older)

Test screen

“Ich kann mich gar nicht entscheiden
Ist alles so schön bunt hier
Ich glotz TV (sie glotzt TV)
Ich glotz TV (sie glotzt TV)”

(Nina Hagen in TV-Glotzer)

“How to build that ship?” End of the story!

“I saw a ship a-sinking, a-sinking, a-sinking,

With glittering sea-water splashing on her decks,
With seamen in her spirit-room singing songs and drinking,
Pulling claret bottles down, and knocking off the necks,
The broken glass was chinking as she sank among the wrecks.”

(J. Masefield in I saw a ship)

We met at the old factory wall

called out to play …
called out to play …

their friendship
does not all please
their fathers”

Only dreams are presented here

“At the age of thirty-seven she realised she’d never
ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair
So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she’d memorised in her daddy’s easy chair”

(Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show in The ballad of Lucy Jordan)
