paul celan

Wie du dich ausstirbirst in mir:

noch in letzten
Knoten Atems
steckst du mit einem

How you die out in me:

down to the last
knot of breath
you’re there, with a
of life

translation (I think) is Michael Hamburger but if it's rubbsh and i'm doing a disservice to his memory then it's probably been me
