desert song

Gustaf Munch-Petersen: Towards Jerusalem

in white cloaks

in white blinding

hoods

knife-sharp rings

around the necks

ear-splitting

soul-numbing

rattling of chain –

step

by

step

prisoner-steps drag

against sand –

through white

blinding hoods

burning eyes see

sand

sand

sand –

the human-fear’s

chains drag

heavy trails

in sand - |

the human-fear’s

ridiculous chains

kill high

wills in sand –

in white cloaks

in white blinding

hood:

Prisoners –

CHAINS ARE

MYTH

CHAINS ARE

LIE-SEEDS LINKED

TOGETHER –

IN CHAINS HIGH

WILLS DIE

IN VAIN –

NO, NO, NO,

A DOOR IS

OPEN TO

EACH STRAIGHT UP STANDING

WILL TO GO

WITHOUT CHAINS

FORWARD

DO NOT WAIT!

EACH ONE OF

YOU IS

MESSIAS –
