"Black frost. The ground is hard, the air tastes bitter. Your stars cluster in evil signs."
"Despair, night in the grieving senses."
"Earlier lives drift by on silver soles, and the shadows of the damned descend into these sighing waters."
"For whoever is lonely there is a tavern."
"Frost and smoke. A white shirt of stars burns your worn-out shoulders, and God's vultures tear at your metallic heart."
"I drank the silence of God from a spring in the woods."
"Shuddering under the autumn stars, each year, the head sinks lower and lower."
"Silently, God opens his golden eyes over the place of skulls."
"The blue of my eyes is extinguished in this night, the red gold of my heart."
"The guilt of newborns is immense."
"The icy wave of eternity would engult the golden image of man."
"The near stillness recalls what is forgotten, extinct angels."
"When we are thirsty, we drink the white waters of the pool, the sweetness of our mournful childhood."
