Poems: Dunamis, little magician of Mess kirch, home less

 

                                                    1. Dunamis

 

not so many women then 

       not so many beautiful young women then 

              not so many smart young women then

                     who yearned for the rid dle of existence


                              and opened her self

 

a face that launched a thousand

                              as he reached  o u t

 

                                   to tou c h


 

                                2.  Lit tle Magician of Mess kirch

  

He had it all

      the students drunk on his words

             a secret Fu eh r er

                in the kingdom of thought

 

and he swelled the be in g

       of the leader

            like the   sea

  

he made himselfsmall

      toenlargethe

                                  leader

 

he sunk his word s and be ing


                                            into the leader

 

he took the little student

     who had traveled in America

and wrote words

        heavy with po i son

 

to cast him  out


                                 3. Home less

  

In Der Spiegel

     he spoke

 

In the Human Condition

     she spoke

(he is still

insideher

 

 in a poem

     the beautiful  Den ise  Lever tov


           spoke

  

of humans uprooted

     leaving the planet 

                    leaving the trees

                                   and flowers

                                           and eve

                                                   and snake

 

      leaving the poisoned gulf 

                     birdsdripping

 

from which their

           words

  

                    home  less


had once

       soared
