In this grey morning

Patience runs amok between

The players.

Mr T phones ÖBB

Departing Vienna 14:10 to


Then local train to Auschwitz

About 40 minutes

Total 4h/33minutes –

So called Sparschiene E 42,50

To book on the 22.01.2020 in

The morning. There and back?

All talked in German.

“Have you been?” Mr T asks the

Poet. “No,” he says, but I’ve seen

A few documentaries and the

Feature movies about that huge

Camp and killing machine

Besides the newest reports on

German TV.

B – The poet’s spouse phoned him

At 5 am to laud him

About his effort to bring her

Fresh sweet fruit and her favourite

Manzo arosto alla inglese.

Just to phone him again a few hours


And scold him about her present

Living conditions

As if it would be entirely his fault.

Well – the poet has sponsors

Who keep him going

At times he lives with them

Working at his art

In peace and quiet

B dislikes.

This’ the way at present.
