About Clarity and Other Errors – Poems

Original title in German: Von Klarheit und anderen Irrtümern – Lyrikband

Edition Ovidia, Vienna, 2016

The poems in the lyric volume „About Clarity And Other Errors“ question everything that seems natural and logic to us: thoughts that have grown into habits, the functioning of everyday life subjects, natural phenomena, the „Me“, language as identity and love as something all-embracing. Because, in fact, everything tends to happen differently than one thinks and that mechanism effect life as a chain reaction. One is just not aware of that fact and has no idea what root and what cause is in life.

The Certain Something

Taking a line under the magnifying glass is very exciting, / because a line contains billions of points. / Between the points there is an empty space, / which is filled with billions of points, / and between these points there is again an empty space, / which is filled with billions of points, / and between these points there is also an empty space, / which is also filled with billions of points, / and so on and so on endlessly. / In this way we can look at life experiences: / Between experiences in our life there is always an empty space, / which is filled with other events. / Our attitude, / that we consider something important in life and something unimportant, / is a totally missed setting: / The allegedly decisive experiences are only occasional phenomena / and exist only to complete the lifeline, / and not to fascinate anyone. / Since life is not a line, but an infinite number of experiences, / we should always focus on the empty space between the experience. / It helps us to understand that life in its nature / is an endless emptiness, / which can never be filled in.
