"------ The pity of it all - seventies. Cryptated. Generation gap. Hydraulic system. Our tiny bodies.
Big tears. Sightless. Everything in the same direction. And we touched. In these huge houses.

Martha. Night. May 1945. A river boat from Tolkemit. You and many others. Lying on a pile of coal. Trying to sleep? You didnt know then , but you escaped soviet machinegun fire from the sky, you were not done by torpeds, you escaped being turned into an internee by the Soviets, but not your friend that you parted from the day before; many years later his mother recieved the news of his death.

You did come to us, with everything else that could have happened. We are here now.Worried and relieved. Gazing up against the night sky. We can hear the brackish Baltic Sea waters split towards the bow. Unknowledgable. Did u see the stars?

An inexorably, merciless suction from within the future made you survive. The night wind as fate in your young face. My children. And yours. What would have happend if you didn´t? You were only nineteen?"-Martin Küchen
