Five past twelve

I am one human being. I am diverse. I’m ambiguous.

381 kilometers as the crow flies, 500 km by car –
this is the distance from Vienna to Innsbruck,
or the drive from Linz to Venice –
from Austria to a Russian war zone.
“How can we dance when the world keeps turning?
How can we sing while our beds are burning?”
Not everyone cooks with water. We cook with gas.
And bathe in oil. Until late after midnight.

It’s five past twelve.
The Baiji, the Chinese river dolphin, became extinct in 2007.
From the Vaquita, the smallest whale on earth,
there are probably only ten individuals left.
It’s five past twelve.
Human massacres on our doorsteps…

Human insanity is not subjective.
It affects us all.
But it is also not objective.
Objectively I am here and the war there,
the murders there, the expulsion there…

But all people who directly participate
are people like me: eyes, nose, ears, skin.
A racing heart. A finger on the trigger.
A body in front of me… broken and torn
still twitching and bleeding,
now empty.
