Sascha Engel: Re-enchanting the World




Fragment for Pyrrhon


I

But souls are small birds, first,

A hymn by means of song

Stirs feathers and leaves


Things in the form of riddles.

No more through words imposed

Dissolves words and things


Remains are dust and sunny rays

And undergrowth for nests

No further tangled words


II

Accept you won’t control the winds

Nor waves pummelling the shore

Accept that riddles will remain

That greed for causes is the same

As greed for riches. Re-enchant

The world. For rationality

Accepts no boundaries for its rule

Claims precedence beyond repair
