Heiner Mueller (trans. Carl Weber): "The great poems: ruins, like
loved a long time and now / Of no use anymore, by the wayside of a
that's finite but / using up plenty / Between the lines:
lamentation / on
the bones of the stone carriers: happy / / Since the beautiful
possible end of the horrors."
and "The possible end" - where the beauty lies in the possibility,
the creation of, the pointing towards, the simply negative gesture of
refusing horror that implies that it Doesn't Have To Be This Way.
beautiful lines: thanks
