Klaus Høeck: 'Bird in Space' (1927)

bird in space

but what bird? – it is
not a carrier pigeon
at any rate whose

flight is far more hor
izontal across the land
map of the centu

ry perhaps a bit
tern or heron in the lake’s brass
no i think it is

a swift on its way
through the eye of the needle
of the universe
