WORTE UNBEKANNTE
(7/9/10)


after
a week
of nagging
English
in every
colloquial
variety
I yearn
for words
unknown

Friday
evening
workouts
are accompanied by
Rammstein
Eisbrecher
Megaherz

dark
heavy
melodies
with lyrics
beyond my meager
capabilities
of translation

my German
ancestors
would be ashamed
at such ignorance
of the family
language

I smile
with
the brutal beat
and guttural
utterances

finally
human sounds
undemanding
of my
attention
