#138 Christian Morgenstern

Christian Morgenstern (b. 1871, Germany – d. 1914, Italy)
Fisches Nachtgesang, 1905

A poem without sounds, yet plenty of meaning.

I’ve read about Hugo Ball reciting it at Cabaret Voltaire… I wonder how…

Otherwise it is an interesting way to pay attention to spaces in-between, in this case – in-between the words – and do something out of them. Something out of nothing is always interesting. OK, not always. When well done, like here.
