Text des Tages

Kartoffelfeuer

The early autumn stillness holds
a sudden raven screaming,
the smell of ripe apples,
of spring rolls,
coming from the Chinese restaurant
on the first floor

There is in all this
an urge for answers to summer’s ending,
that dull September afternoon
burning my childhood
in a Kartoffelfeuer

The next day this smell was gone forever.
In the mirror over the lavatory,
anygirl is smiling seductively
to the new born world as if to say,
here I am,
take me
I’m yours
