Growing



Could you imagine yourself as Karl 

May

poor son of a poor Saxon weaver

1842

imagined himself

a doctor policeman auditor

stealing handsewn clothes

no poor embroideries here

from unsuspecting

dressed to the nines

paid no hotel bills

dreaming dreaming

hunted by police

this German brother to Winnetou

through the dark woods

elusive elusive 

Apache chief

fluid impostor

near his Saxon home

Old Southwest

fighting Anglo cowboys

Karl

5’5

shatter your jaw

dreamed in a cave

jailed


invented

a doomed race

a single blow

Villa Shatterhand

Hitler’s heroes

dressed as Winnetou

slaughter “Ukrainian redskins”

in the Wild East


of German films

Pierre Brice as Winnetou

and Tarzan as Karl

Fantastic Mr. MAY

HERO


indigenous Americans demand

jammed in Radebeul

scalps

each summer

for burial

300,000 children

from the MAY MUSEUM
