Argo Spier | I have travelled

I have travelled [on a train
a whistling ship a rocket]

I have visited the earth
[a planet full of sawdust just like the moon]

and I divided the animals into species
the way I saw it

the snake
[the rustling hull through the grass]

the flamingo
[a stalking rowboat on the water]

and the wolf
[a dangerous firespitting earth animal

with a sign on its body]

and I found
it to be good the way I saw it

[and I took a photo
of myself next to my carriage]

(From PRIVATE 36 – AFRIKA, p. 82 – Argo Spier
from RAAm, 1996)
