Hunter

English: This is the Orion constellation also ...

Hunter
my constellation
aims
into the secret bloodpoint:
unrest …
and the step without refuge flies –

But the wind is no house
only licks like animals
the wounds of the body –

How are we ever to draw
time from the golden threads of the sun?
To wind up
night
for the cocoon of the silk moth?


O dark,
spread out your message
for the space of an eye lash:

Rest as you flee.

Jäger
mein Sternbild.
zielt
in heimlichen Blutpunkt:
Unruhe …
und der Schritt asyllos fliegt ­

Aber der Wind ist kein Haus
leckt nur wie Tiere
die Wunden am Leib ­

Wie nur soll man
die Zeit aus den goldenen Fäden der Sonne ziehen?


Aufwickeln
für den Kokon des Seidenschmetterlings
Nacht?

O Dunkelheit
breite aus deine Gesandtschaft
für einen Wimpernschlag:

Ruhe auf der Flucht.
