Patrick Siech - 1133

Perfect! 

PLAYTIME: the windows, they too,
read you all that secrecy
from your whirls
and mirror it
in the jelly-eyed beyond
[…]
strengthened
the hour stops next to you,
you speak,
you stand,
most firm above
the parabelized messengers
by voice
by matter.
—  Paul Celan, from Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry, transl. by Pierre Joris (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2014)

Typewriter and Vinyl please

Vinyl: What is some of your favorite music?

I love alternative and hard rock!  No one ever seems to have heard of my favorite bands, though.  I usually tell people to listen to Cyrenic if they want to understand my taste in music, other good bands I like are Vertical Horizon, Black Lab, and Parabelle.  Right now I’m listening to Greenwheel.

Typewriter: If you had to come up with ten words to describe your life story so far, what would they be?

Ohhh, this is hard.  Let’s go with agonizing, illness, stubborn, determination, apathy, support, despair, unexpected, difficult, and unlikely.

Mir ist wichtiger, dass meine Kinder keine Arschlöcher werden, als dass sie wissen, wie groß die Fläche unter der Parabel ist.
— 

It is more important to me that my children don’t become assholes than that they know the size of the area under a parabola.
