Plastic Bag Caught in Tree Branches

plastic birds

     caught in trees


     by the breeze

          unendowed with a song


     yet strong

plastic birds

     you will flutter

          long after atomic sirens have been uttered

virgo’s brightest star…

spica basks in the moon’s glare…

we absorb your strength…


der hellste Stern von virgo …

Spica sonnt sich im grellen Licht des Mondes …

Wir nehmen deine Stärke …

caught in my own reflection /

between Saturn and the Sun /

i yield … to repetition…


in meiner eigenen Reflektion gefangen /

zwischen Saturn und der Sonne /

ich gebe zu … zu Wiederholung …
