A goalkeeper’s memorial


“I played goalkeeper.
I coached high school soccer teams: 
I lost interest.”

The abandoned stage of the industrial theater


“When a historic building is left to decay, 
A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days, 
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”

(G.B. Hough in Ode To A Dead Theatre (Morecambe Winter Gardens Uk))

Whispered into afternoon


“Sonne, herbstlich dünn und zag,
Und das Obst fällt von den Bäumen.
Stille wohnt in blauen Räumen
Einen langen Nachmittag.”

(G. Trakl in In den Nachmittag geflüstert)

Industrial sound is dying in this hall of fame


“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying
Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talking)
