THE WAY BACK

If we define Europe as
"the landmass behind Greece"
- we see what we already know -
everything can be destroyed -
except myth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How ever
to replace
thee
sooner
a voice
about
the eyes
How ever
to replace
thee
a witness
sooner
gone


"I desired
my dust
mingled
with yours"
beyond
delicacies
of speech
You had
gone away
I could not
return

"One day, in the compartment of some train, as
I was looking at the passenger sitting across
from me, I was suddenly struck by the realization
that any man in worth any other. Behind
what was visible of this man - I discovered /
a kind of identity common to all men."

Abfallen - Jan Skácel

Am 7. November 2019 jährt sich der Todestag von Jan Skácel, er starb vor dreißig Jahren in Brno. Der Dichter Skácel weckte in mir den Wunsch, Tschechisch zu lernen.
