The music grounds

our unconscious arithmetic

Music is pleasure lost --

human's primeval soul

experiences innocent

counting and without becoming

into awareness

that present sickness --

nothing in my head

world that is living

takes place

creating each instant

instant always changing

into the stone

of repeating myself immediately


heard and again

sound and suddenly again

gazing at thinking
