Frank Rothkamm [ Twilight of the Rhine ]


Heraclitus once said
no human ever steps in the same river twice
for it's not the same river
and it’s not the same human

at twilight
what would happen
if the human were to step into the same river again
would always just step into the same river
called the Rhine?

as the river never changes
the human sees the same river only from a different perspective
instead that time passes by it
it moves around time and no time passes

at twilight
samples from the same river
called the Rhine
move in space around the human
time moves in space and no space moves forward in time

while the earth ages
and civilizations come and go
would the human remain changeless
and forever young?
