Nichts Neues Im Westen

Tom Greening – TRANSCEND Media Service

Back in 1928 Erich Maria Remarque
confronted us with the image
of the beheaded soldier
still running,
with blood “like a fountain”
spouting from his neck.
That’s the statue we need
in every park and square
to commemorate what we do so well:
run toward war,
headless.
