Blaupause (1999)

Part of a series or song cycle:

Ende der Handschrift, 11 späte Gedichte von Heiner Müller


Schlaflos im Fenster die Nacht
Fragt wozu das Ganze
Weil ich die Antwort nicht weiß
Das Dunkel läßt nicht mit sich reden
Geh ich zurück in den Schlaf
Der Morgen vielleicht weiß es anders

Blue break

The night sleepless in the window
Asks what everything is for
Because I do not know the answer
The darkness cannot be persuaded
If I go back to sleep
The morning might perhaps know better
