Palimpsest by Klaus Høeck on a painting by Edouard Villard

the newspaper

why is it that the
words in the newspaper are
forgotten almost

before they have been
written down while the poem
lives? – it is because

dead words relate to
time and to time alone and
die with it while the

living words of po
etry relate to what is
time’s prerequisite
