After a Long Time
We have met after a long time.
Come, let us leave the city behind;
At the edge of a forest
Try to drink from a water fall;
Steal time from fleeting moments
And live only for ourselves.
No-one will see us,
No-one will hear us.
You say whatever you wish;
Unafraid, I too criticize everyone I am so pleased to see every day
The New Disease
This is the new disease Of modern times;
It has no symptoms
Which can be diagnosed.
Every medicine useless,
The healer shamefully admits defeat.
Today, every flourishing field
Grows silence with its wheat:
Enters the belly,
Devours the glow of voices like a termite.
This well-dressed man with sealed lips
But cannot speak;
Can think, But cannot shout.
