MARSYAS, UMKREIST / DERWEIL:

Poem By Anja Utler

derweil:
ist entäußert ganz stürzt: er ihm - schließlich - entgegen
und quillt es entgurgelt entkreischt ihm - ein ächzen -
und vorerst nur er: vom entsetzen entbunden wird marsyas wird -
endlich: entströmt er ins harrende land er
entrinnt nicht: entspringt

Marsyas, Encircled 1 / Shaded - Clasping

marsyas, it is: strung up on the tree trunk
soon: skinned, the branch clawed - pelt -
is: stretched, so shadows flee from the
axilla, being split by the blade

Marsyas, Encircled 4 / Rampant - Pouring Out

welted, bulges, fibres separated from the inside
hidden: that's how they wanted to generate prickle-cells,
corneal cells: spraying layers, they wanted to surround

Marsyas, Encircled 5 / Swirling - Desolate

trembles - the air filled with fleeing birds, rustling sounds -
to finger the serrate's darkening furrows

Marsyas, Encircled3 / Neatly Sepearated

him: being observed his: glistening limbs
slippery with sweat - spasms - salt will seem
whitish by the tree: the axilla flowering,

Marsyas, Encircled 2 / Groping - Remembered

-

only: rustling of: shoots the daphne's sprouting stalks, the:
buds redden
