Translated by Artur Komoter




We frolic with death,

every day we joke about life.

And it slips by.

Every day we get closer

to no longer being human,

instead to being

only a body

and a memory

in the minds of the Jokesters.





When we are
anointed with life,
marked by destiny,
we wonder
the same Demiurge
gives us life and death?
do we have to
agree on destiny?

Often –





Where the trains

brought people,

there were chimneys.



the deadly smoke

– dreams were passing.


The trustful,

without farewells

lost their meaning and the meaning of the word

– Human.
