(Swans - June 15, 2009)  

Was darf Ich offen, what can I hope?

Per poter vivere bisogna ricadere nel buio
Para poder viver é necessário cair de novo na escuridão
Pour pouvoir vivre, il faut rechuter dans l'obscurité
If you want to live, you need to fall again in the dark
Para poder vivir necesitamos volver a caer en la oscuridad

but videmus nunc per speculum in aenigmate
sed we can see now only through a looking-glass,
through an enigma



The author thanks José María de Juana (Spanish translation), Marie Philippart (French tr.), and Graciela Muller Pozzebon (Portuguese tr.)
