Ende der Handschrift, 11 späte Gedichte von Heiner Müller


Mit der Wiederkehr der Farbe

Mit der Wiederkehr der Farbe droht die
Auferstehung.
ICH HABE DIR GESAGT DU SOLLST
NICHT WIEDERKOMMEN TOT IST TOT.
Der Tod ist ein Irrtum.

With the return of colour

With the return of colour
Resurrection threatens
I’VE TOLD YOU YOU SHOULD
NOT RETURN DEAD IS DEAD.
Death is a mistake.
