Sample text

Alle sprechen vom uberfluss. Es soil wieder iiberfllissige Menschen geben. 50 2 Someone knows what's up. He's a student. Old people never tell anything but old tales. A seminarian and a usurer in St. Petersburg: The classics: splendid stuff for crossword puzzles. Nothing is quite so annoying as what is good. You cannot always just chase flies. To carry a hatchet under your coat will soon come in style. Everyone talks of affluence. I hear there are superfluous people again. 51 3 Taglich verliert jemand seine Unschuld unter Schlagstocken.

Es hat keinen Sinn mehr auszuwandern. Einfache Satze werden nicht einfacher. ) 52 3 Everyday the nightsticks rob someone’s innocence. Every day we understand each other less. Dailies are still delivered every day. Peace is a comedy. To emigrate no longer serves any purpose. Simple statements don’t get any simpler. 53 Ich, Anton Pawlowitsch simuliere Gesundheit, putze meinen Zwicker, beobachte die Unkurierbaren. Als Einziger meiner Gilde sah ich das Weisse im Auge von Deportierten, notierte Schreie, Kniippelwunden, die Warmequelle des Mondes auf der Eisflache Sachalin.

Verzweifelt bitte ich um den Mut der Verzweiflung. Gluck haben: keinen Schuss Pulver wert sein. Ich lege die Maske ab. Niemand erkennt mich. Schwalben kann man vom Himmel herunterholen. Doch kann man sie zwingen, nur in einer Richtung zu fliegen? Den Kampf zwischen Leiden und Tod wird das Leiden gewinnen. Der Hang steiler, das Wegende scharfer, das Blau reiner: Schritt um Schritt. Sprache ist Luft fiir mich. Unanfechtbarkeit im Luftleeren. Die letzte Klarheit ist nichtssagend. Das Klare ist nicht das Unmogliche, sondern das Unmogliche ist das Klare.
