sunk so low

more than 90, 80, now 75 percent of people

don’t submit radical right-wing votes

in some regions of Germany these days.

how low does this number have to get

until we are all in serious danger?

when do I pack my bags and

leave this place behind

where privilege is still systemically

hoarded amongst the few,

where minorities tremble

for participation and social justice,

where being German is made still

into an ethnically exclusive birthright?


today it’s hard to live here

and be an optimist.
