Sechs Zeilen für Doktor Benn

 

“Im Schlafe und Traume machen wir das ganze Pensum früheren Menschentums durch.”

– Nietzsche

P1290995_3

         

         Das Messer,

                            der Krieg –

         die Drogen,

                            der Sieg –

         die Schauer,

                            die Zeit –

         gelebtes Vergessen:

         – Welt-Einsamkeit!

What Games to Play

“It is a difficult business, no doubt, to get any fun out of existence; but at least it is not impossible.”

– Aleister Crowley

P1290957

A voice floated down to me.

“Let’s decide what games to play

& how to settle arguments.”

“Come to pay me.”

“My honour.”

Something patted me on the shoulder.

“I can tell you secrets.”

Remembering the old ways,

I’d go for my own kin.

“I hate spiders.”
