I Hereby Take You Prisoner

I hereby take you prisoner
you words
as you take me prisoner
spelling into my blood
you are my heart-beats
reckoning my time
this emptiness identified by names

Let me see the bird
that sings
else I must think love is the same as death –

Hier nehme ich euch gefangen
Ihr Wörter
wie ihr mich buchstabierend
gefangen nehmt
ihr seid meine Herzschläge
zählt meine Zeit
diese mit Namen bezeichnete Leere

Lass mich den Vogel sehen
der singt
sonst glaube ich die Liebe gleicht dem Tod –
