INSTANT INTRODUCTION
Stefan Hyner

Too hard to get to, they say
10000 mountains made of tears
life is suffering, so easily said
when all possible hands are needed
to calm the memory down

FIRST RESPONSE & EXTENSION
Jerome Rothenberg

Is something left to say
for those who say it
who come into a kind of stillness
in which a scream breaks forth at intervals
& then recedes
leaving a trail of shattered bones
in back of ear

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe: From 'Venetian Epigrams'

Translation from German by Jerome Rothenberg
