Are Graves A Breathing Space

Are graves a breathing space for longing?
Swinging more softly on star rings?
Agony in nightshade,
before the trumpets blow
for universal ascension,
seeds rotting into life?


Softly, softly,
while the worms
devour the stars of our eyeballs?

Sind Gräber Atempausen für die Sehnsucht?
Leiseres Schaukeln an Sternenringen? 
Agonie im Nachtschatten, 
bevor die Trompeten blasen
zur Auffahrt für alle, 
zum Leben verwesenden Samenkörner?

Leise, leise,
während die Würmer
die Gestirne der Augapfel verzehren?
