What Life Is About

Long for justice, it’s a crime
where spilling blood is thought sublime.
All regrets are deaf-born shouts.
Take the blame and sort them out.

One by one they steal thy charms
so as to make thee come to harm.
All the leaftlets will grow teeth,
bowing down to underneath.

Meet me by the riverside
and kiss to death the whole-heart tribe.
All the ashes are in doubt –
this is what life is about.

Bisweilen verdichten sich zufällige Gedankenstränge zu Wortgeflechten, die man nicht »Text« im eigentlichen Sinne nennen möchte, die aber neben aller Paradoxität keinen Widersinn darstellen, sondern den Zwang des geordneten Denkens für einen Augenblick aufbrechen und somit den Druck, den derselbe sonst ausübt, aufheben. Die hier aufgeschoßnen Gedanken sind harmlos, allein es sei zur Vorsicht geraten, da außer diesen viele Gefahren auf besagten verschlungnen Wegen lauern, welche sich ohne Vorwarnung als Fallen erweisen können, denen man kaum zu entrinnen vermag. Den Wahnsinnigen dünkt seine Irrationalität der Gipfel der Vernunft. Entsprechend konsequent handelt er.

[Sometimes, random strings of thought combine to wickerworks one would not like to call ‘text’ in the actual sense of the word, but which, besides all paradoxity, do not constitute absurdity, but break up the force of orderly thought for a moment, and thus neutralize the pressure which the very same usually exerts. The thoughts which leaped up here are harmless, yet I urge you to be cautious, since apart from these, there are all kinds of dangers lurking on said entwined paths, which may, without warning, turn out to be traps which one can barely escape. Their irrationality appears to the insane the summit of reason. Correspondingly resolute are their actions.]
