Paper Jubilee

What else can you say
than congratulations to the paper jubilee
to the thousands of deaths
and many more just out of breaths

Sonnet #31: Knife

His feelings turn from good to bad to evil
When he is walking by the riverside
As he’s a witness of some brave upheavel
He wants to join it but he needs to hide

Sonnet #25: Peace

When every drop of hope seemed spilled with ease
By narrow minded people without thinking
The enemies of freedom make their peace
Don’t hesitate to drop your glass of drinking

Indestructible / Unverwüstlich

Living in the bitter fate of resilience I watch the bombs fall //
Leben im bitteren Schicksal der Unverwüstlichkeit Ich schaue die Bomben fallen

Global Teapot

Words are floating down the southern hemisphere
Troublesome the mind might melting
Into a global teapot

Sonnet #24: War

When language’s heating up through old white men
The danger grows that escalation’s been
A calculated puzzle piece again
The planning of a war we could have seen

Sonnet #14: Uneven

The ghosts of past are spreading wings of fire
They share their waste along the burning shore
We leave them there to keep each other dire
Because insane like us we wanted more

Sonnet #12: Prejudices

Applying to indifferences why
The schedule of the fight writes down the law
Release the armour whispers there a cry
The echo breaks itself at what we saw

By a Landslide

Life could be so easy
How many times do we use this phrase
Every week —
Every day —
