Leipzig main railway station is a beautiful monster.
It swallows you with your purpose.
Engulfs you with rock and light.
Spits you right out.
Hardened old bread roll with fat cheese and thin coffee.
Soldiers and drunks share the restaurant.
Mix their sleeplessness and odor.
Garlic, felt and booze.
What if they shoot me at the checkpoint?
Should I run towards the border?
Should I hold up a poster?
What if, what if…
Always loved this station.
We got arrested here once.
A friend traveled with a guitar.
We sat on the floor and sang songs.
The train is almost empty.
I feel relaxed and focused.
The world flies by - THEIR world.
