Selbstmord

This poem was originally typeset in uppercase.

TAKE
   THE BLADE OUT
LOOK
   INTO ITS LIGHT
   INTO ITS LIFE
PERCEIVE
   AND REMEMBER.

GO
   TO A MIRROR
LOOK
   INTO YOUR EYES
   INTO YOUR MIND
PERCEIVE
   AND UNDERSTAND.

CUT
   ONCE
AND
   TWICE

ENOUGH

AND LET IT
   FLOW

FLOW
   OUT OF YOU
AND
   INTO THEM

LOOK
   LOOK

AND CLOSE
   YOUR EYES

PERCEIVE
   FORGIVE

   
   FORGET.
