Be Thou Still With Me?
What is reality and what is phantom?
Why do I move and what do I actually want to move?

Music: Christian Meyer

Berlin, with funds from the federal government commissioner for Culture and Media within the

SHIROKAGE (white shadow)

No one moves, yet it wriggles.
On the edge of the vision,
around colourless corners.
The lack of words makes the sound invisible.
Sharp shadows lead into black.
The shape - chimerical
Too bright. All falling, falling down.
Forgotten shudders tumble again.
Displaced legs stumble over it.
A red swollen calm border.
Smoothly it turns, pale.
On the edge of the vision,
around colorless corners.
