Inge Offermann

Sunday afternoon

Damped
atmosphere.

Ventilation

humming.

Beer-tired minds

in stuffed air.

Darkened rooms

let only feel

outside heat.

Day-shimmer

drops through
w
indow shades.

Writing paper

slides down

to the buffed floor,

sounds like
folding wings.

Letters blur

before my eyes.

Damped atmosphere

of a Sunday afternoon

Sonntagnachmittag

 

Gedämpfte Stimmung.

Ein Ventilator summt.

Biermüde Gesichter

in stickiger Luft.

Abgedunkelte Räume

lassen nur die Hitze

von draußen spüren.

Durch Fensterläden.

schimmert Tageslicht.

Schreibpapier gleitet

auf den polierten Boden,

ein Geräusch wie

aufflatternde Flügel.

Buchstaben tanzen

vor meinen Augen.

Gedämpfte Stimmung

eines Sonntagnachmittags.
