Das Wirbelsäulen Orakel für Meret Oppenheim / The Vertebrae Oracle for Meret Oppenheim

 

In der Angstliebe
kreisend
pulsierend
vogelstolzig
androgyn
Justine im Tigerpelz
die Leberflecken türkis

im Schwarm irrlichternd
die Bienenkönigin
in Honigwein gebadet
ihr Steinversteck ohne Dach
von Plejaden geschützt

das Seelenverwirrspiel
schaukelnd
auf dem Ziegenbart des Onkels
das Hebräische verlernt

die Reise nach Korfu
zu den Kletterhäusern.

 

 

In the fear-love
circling
pulsing
bird-proud
androgynous
Justine in tiger pelt
the liver spots turquoise

flitting about in the swarm
the Queen of Bees
bathed in honey wine
her stony roofless hideaway
protected by the Pleiades

the souls confusing play
swinging
on the goatee of the uncle
forgotten the Hebrew

the journey to Corfu
to the climbing huts.
