The lamp in the empty room

“I looked back suddenly
into the empty room
and saw the lamp that I had lit
still shining on the little table by the window
and throwing its light on the tumbled sheets of paper
on which I had been writing.

And I felt as though long years ago a man,
whom I had know very little,
had lighted that lamp,
and sat by the window writing and believing that he was a poet,
and then he came out of the room and found the letter.

He would not go into the room again:
And not he, but I will go in softly
And put out the lamp,
And lay aside the useless paper.”

(Humberte Wolfe in The lamp in the empty room)

The secrets of a drawer

"Drei Wandrer sind gegangen,
Und als der Abend fiel,
Da trugen sie Verlangen
Nach frohem Kartenspiel.
Der Jüngste sprach: "Ich bitte,
Sagt an, geht es um Geld?"
Und Antwort gab der Dritte:
"Wir spielen um die Welt!""

(K. Busse in Drei Wandrer)

Ich kann noch ganz andre Sachen machen!

“Ich habe unbändige Lust
fies und gemein zu sein
es macht mir einen Höllenspaß
so wie ein Schwein zu sein
ich lüg dich an mit einem Lachen
das fällt dir gar nicht auf
ich kann noch ganz andre Sachen machen
da kommst du gar nicht drauf.”

(Ideal in Schwein)

See me!

See me!

"If thou wert blind,
I would give my sight,
Lest thy darkness should set me far from thee."

High heat

High heat“The air is getting hotter
There’s a rumbling in the skies
I’ve been wading through the high muddy water
With the heat rising in my eyes
Every day your memory grows dimmer
It doesn’t haunt me like it did before …”

(Bob Dylan in Trying to get to heaven)
