Israel

Israel
flag crackling in salt,
and flight cut off
with the weeping sword of the sea
or
buried in the cold sweat of fear
against a wall,
smoking with the thirst of the hunt.

Flight, flight, flight,
flight meridians
linked
by broken lines of God-longing

Flight from the black-bled stars
of goodbye,
flight into the lightning-clad
hostels of madness,

Flight, flight, flight
into the fatal blow of flight
from the brief halt
on the shattered path of the bloodstream –

Flight

Israel,
knisternde Fahne im Salz,
und die Flucht abgeschnitten
mit des Meeres weinendem Schwert
oder
im Angstschweiß vergraben
an einer Mauer,
rauchend vor Jägerdurst.

Flucht, Flucht, Flucht,
Fluchtmeridiane
verbunden
mit Gott-Sehnsuchts-Strichen 

Flucht aus den schwarzgebluteten Gestirnen
des Abschieds,
Flucht in die blitztapezierten
Herbergen des Wahnsinns,

Flucht, Flucht, Flucht
in den Gnadenstoß der Flucht
aus der zersprengten Blutbahn
kurzer Haltestelle –
