An Early Morning in Daylight-Saving SummerMarch 2012
In a razor sharp buzzing they come to haul me / from my bat-infested nightmare-time—
Every DayJuly 2011 War is no longer declared, / it is continued.
The Lucky OneBy Robert Walser, translated from the German by Daniele Pantano
...there / was always a lucky one, who carried with him / the mistakes of others, what a burden / it must have been that pushed him down, / but he was pleased by all this pushing.
