SPL  IT
i met  a girl in the street
beautiful like  an ugly
star  from a french movie
but between my eyes  there`s a split
a long  line of blood
with an end  in my heart
its roots  in my balls
its branches  in my brain
the sun comes  and dries the blood
between my eyes  there`s a split
it`s  spring


*

the train ran off the rails
       father forgive me
          that the model railway is broken
the train ran off the rails
       brother forgive me
          that the river is polluted
the train ran off the rails
       mother forgive me
          that my brother-in-law is a cripple
          that sis herself got killed
          that the handsome pointsman shot himself
          that i´ll be sent to jail where i´ll be tortured and humiliated
          that our good name has been stained
the train ran off the rails
       fatherland forgive me
          that i betrayed you
the train ran off the rails
       grandfather don´t you grin there
          crumbs of bread may stick in your throat
          and you´ll choke
          think about the relatives
          they´ll all be cold in the cemetery
          and there´s no model railway any more
          our family has always played with
          at all the funerals and other reunions

three crosses
on Calvary
God´s signature?
