Josef Krebs - One Poem

Glancing homeward through the ages

I last longer than I last lasted
Entranced by the possibilities that didn't seem possible
At that time of doubt and external deliberations
Stopping the singing
In the darkened room
Under the covers
Of the night
When dreams naturally flow forth
Before colliding with the walls
Ceilings inserted in the I-don't mind
As if nothing would ever change
And the prisoners would never be released
But eliminated before liberation
Saved from slaughter
Or self-disgust
Instilled by the conquerors
The masterful race that ran the hotel
Where you didn’t belong
But collaboration was the only option during daily exercises in purposelessness and
Until night landed and resistance became possible
