Darmstadt @ HoffART Theater 11/15/17 #poetry

Cookie for your liver
Coffee for your brain
Cigarette for your lungs
And a schnitzel for your heart

In the country
It is the buildings and the cars
That tell us there are people

When the road is closed
We take another road
When that road is closed
We look for another way

If a bird eating a berry
Drops a seed from it’s mouth
And a berry tree grows
Why is it more natural
Than if the man in the bright yellow suit
Plants a tree by the side of the road?

We begin again every day
We finish nothing
Until the flavors of the soup
Are perfect
Or until we are too tired
To taste the difference
