Here And There

All Broken-Hearted

 (Photo credit: Orin Zebest)

Here and there the lantern of compassion
should be lent to the fishes
where the hook has been swallowed
or choking been well practised.
That is where the stars of torment
have grown ripe for redemption.
Or there,
where lovers hurt each other,
lovers
who are forever close to dying.

Hier und da ist die Laterne der Barmherzigkeit
zu den Fischen zu stellen,  
wo der Angelhaken geschluckt
 oder das Ersticken geübt wird.
Dort ist das Gestirn der Qualen  
erlösungsrei

f geworden.
Oder dahin,
wo Liebende sich wehe tun,
Liebende,
die doch immer nahe am Sterben sind.
