Stone Desert. (Großstadt.) by Karl Farr

Where people live
under rocks,
like ants.  

Nightreveller -
glowing like glowworms
gleam.
All ready.  

Cars
sneak
like animals
drove not far.
In der die Menschen wie
unter Felsstücken leben,
Ameisen gleich.

Nachtschwärmer –
wie Glühwürmchen glimmen
all zeit bereit.

Autos –
wie Raubtiere herum schleichend
fahren nicht weit.
