Markings

This race,
this wonderful race!

Here it kisses the hangman
with a golden noose round its neck;
here for a fistful of mulberries
it fights to the blood with a brother;
here it gets drunk with rage,
foaming at the mouth,
here it plucks the live heart
from a dove.

This race,
this wonderful race!

In its furrows
under the sun awakens
a flower with a biblical name:
Mother-of-God's-heart.
