David Horvitz

through the morning ) kiss this pillow

17.01.2015 - 28. 04. 2015

Trotz allem, was  atmet und bewegt,

da Verhängnis (mit weißen, längsten Händen, die jede Falte ausgleichen)

wird unsere Geister ganz glätten -bevor ich mein Zimmer verlasse,

kehr ich, und (durch den Morgen bückend)

küsse dieses Kissen,

meine Liebe wo unsre Köpfe wohnten und waren.
