"Die Bleiben und winken, wissen es nicht."
                                            Paul Celan

quai de départ
dark moist clinging
clothes scuffed a suitcase of cash
empty trucks back
on Bahnsteig Zwei
forbidden centres
business dealt tents
collapsed embankments
being suburban
trunks blur in the word for home

Wegrander goods yards
currency from stone
obol tongued shadow
poppies bridge
a transient caress
networks Tsvetayeva
Augärten Marchfeld
slipped through the grids
injuries recede to
the point zeros replicate

sleeping car intertexts
a poor exchange
deletes lovers
lines crossing
abstracting location
às fable
beyond the arc lights
objectively lost
