Still Looped Around Your Forehead

Still looped around your forehead
sickness’s stern horizon
with the rushing rebellion of battle –
the rescue rope thrown into the abyss
to catch those drowning in night –

O-A-O-A-
cradled in a rolling sea of vowels
words have all gone headlong –

Immer noch um die Stirn geschlungen

den strengen Horizont der Krankheit

mit dem rasenden Aufstand des Kampfes −

die Rettungsleine in den Abgrund geworfen

das Nacht-Ertrinkende zu fassen −
O−A−O−A−

ein wiegendes Meer der Vokale

Worte sind alle abgestürzt −
