“The Solitude Of Ravens”
Do you remember Mr.Mueller?
Of course you don´t.
Mr. Mueller has been absent.
You could call him being absent minded.
I don´t know where he was,
when being absent.
I have seen him sad.
I have seen him mad.
I have seen him frustrated.
For a time he had tried hard to eat on his own.
Then he quit. It was too hard on him.
Mr.Mueller has been absent.
Mr. Mueller has spent a few days in the hospital.
The drainage to his urine-bag has been leaking for a while.
Today a black framed notice reporting his death
was hanging amidst of four other death notices.
Only very recent ones.
Mrs.Welte. Mrs. Dr. Auberger. Mrs. Heine. Mr.Rühmann. Mr. Mueller.
Today I have understood
why some deaths hurt more than others.
I didn´t say goodbye to Mr. Mueller.
