A Celan/Clownsilly New Years











A poem that I never forget to share with my family and friends in the warm New Year's Eve glow of champagne and Auld Lang Synes:

DAS ANGERBROCHENE JAHR
mit dem modern
den Kanten
Wahnbrot.

Trink
aus meinen Mund.


THE BROACHED YEAR
with its mouldering crusts
of delusion bread.


Drink
from my mouth.

-Paul Celan (trans. Michael Hamburger)

Happy New Year!
