Zupacken / Gripping
die Kettenspur rot
zwischen den andern
Lebenslinien meiner Hand
 
Abheben,
im Bauch die Flügel des Vertrauens
und der Angst.
Halten einander bis
die Waagrechte den Schrei reißt und endlich
das Herzlot frei schwingt:
Sein!
 
-----------------------------
 
 
the chain that draws a red line
between the other
lifelines of my hand.
 
Taking off -
in my tummy, the wings of trust
and fear.
Holding one another until
the bond breaks, a scream, and finally
the heart swings freely:
To Be!
