Do We Know each Other?


How is it there?
Did it rain?
Are the women good to you?
Are the men?

Are you home?
Is it safe?
Can I come over?
Is there food there?
Did you eat?

I've got a sleeping bag.

******

What's been happening?
Are you writing?
Are you drinking?
Are you hungry man,
are you happy?

You got a dream, man?
That's important, they tell me.

Is it working, man?
Is it happening?

******

Have you some love?
No?
Hashish? A bottle of wine?
Fifty rupees?
Some water?

Have you been good?
Are you asking questions again?
Is there a reason for the things you do?
Do you know?

Are we brothers?
No?
Are you my father?
Am I a son?

Are you from here?

******

You came.
It rained.
I've got eggs.

Don't you love her?
Don't you love him?
Don't you love it?

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
