Lower Manhattan, New York City, NY

Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near
I'll take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I'll take you over


Shakespeare and Company, Paris

The black moon shines on a lake
White as a hand in the dark
She lifts the lamp to see his face
The silver ladle of his throat
The boy, the beast, and the butterfly.


Haus am Kleistpark, Berlin

Desire to dance
Too startled to try
Wrap my legs 'round you
Starting to fly
Let's soar
Up there, up there, up there,
On the twenty-fifth floor


Kraatz, Uckermark

Wild leaves are falling
Falling to the ground
Every leaf a moment
A light upon the crown
That we'll all be wearing
In a time unbound
And wild leaves are falling
Falling to the ground



home, Berlin-Kreuzberg

The world is holy! The soul is holy!
The skin is holy! The nose is holy!
The tongue and cock and hand and asshole holy!
Everything is holy!
Everybody's holy!
Everywhere is holy!
Everyday is in eternity!
Everyman's an angel!
