Quotes[edit]

  • Den Ich-zerfall, den süßen, tiefersehnten,
    Den gibst Du mir: schon ist die Kehle rauh,
    Schon ist der fremde Klang an unerwähnten
    Gebilden meines Ichs am Unterbau
    .
    • The I-breakdown, sweet, deep craved
      You give it to me: already my throat is raw,
      Already I hear the alien sound
      Rebuilding unspoken images of my I.
    • "Cocaine" (1917)
