5. My Dance


Plato accords no fellowship to the poet
Wandering Jew
Metaphysical Don Juan

Friends relations
Youíve no more customs and no habits yet
One must escape the tyranny of magazines

Poor life
Misplaced pride


Woman, the dance that Nietzsche wanted to teach us to dance
But irony?

Continual come-and-go
Special vagrancy
Every man, every land
Itís thus that youíre no more a burden

You no longer make yourself feltÖ


Iím a gentleman who in fabulous express trains crosses the†††††

†††† always same Europes and looks discouraged out the door

The landscape doesnít interest me anymore

But the landscapeís dance
The landscapeís dance
I turn-all


February 1914.
