At three in the morning (Morgens um drei), by Georgi Kratochwil

I’m like a human,
Who at three in the morning
Looks out the window.
And there is nothing to see,
And nothing to hear,
Thoughts are circling
Past joy.

I’m like a human
Who at three in the morning
Looks out the window
and feels an irresistible
Urge to push my head through the glass.
And you? Are youΒ feelingΒ well?
