A poem from 6 February in Klaus Høeck's '1001 POEMS'

     one swears by the soul
of one’s dead mother but it
     ought rather to be
     by her body (by
     her ashes) since it
is the flesh which will rise a
gain on the day of judgment
     and it is thus the
     body which can be
     lost for all eter
nity under the cold si
     licon of the stars
