NO SERVING

"1:34 p.m., New Year's Eve 2020. Bernhard goes shopping with Christine, a few more Kotti beers, it's New Year's Eve, everyone is afraid that there won't be enough, and after 2 p.m. there is no serving. As they both walk through from Kottbusser Tor to Dresdener Straße, Christine takes a photo of him for the next release. At home he discovers that T'Pol is in the photo. And he is extremely annoyed that he has not noticed, 'past, blown away, nevermore'. Since then he has been trying to find out what brought the Vulcan to Kottbusser Tor. Was she looking for the perfect improvised electronic music to save peace? Have you seen her?"

EYES IN THE BIG CITY
by Kurt Tucholsky

When you go to work
early in the morning
when you stand in the station
with all your troubles:
the city shows you
asphalt-smooth
in a funnel of people
a million faces:
Two strange eyes, a quick glance,
the brows, the pupils, the lids -
What was that? Your happiness, perhaps...
gone, passed, no more.

All your life you walk
on a thousand streets;
you see on your way,
those who forgot you.
An eye winks,
the soul rings;
you found it,
only seconds long...
Two strange eyes, a quick glance,
the brows, the pupils, the lids -
What was that? No one turns back the time...
gone, passed, no more.

You're obliged on your way
to wander through cities;
you see for a pulsebeat
the unknown other.
It could be a fiend,
it could be a friend,
or could in the struggle
offer a hand.
A looking over
then passing by...
Two strange eyes, a quick glance,
the brows, the pupils, the lids -
What was that? A piece of grand humanity!
Gone, passed, no more.

Bernhard speaks in his own musical voice; the musical arc of his work often moves from the curiously beautiful to the beautifully curious.
