The fire in which we burn

«What will become of you and me
(This is the school in which we learn...)
Besides the photo and the memory?
(...that time is the fire in which we burn.)»

—Delmore Schwartz

  1. This image does not depict Bildungszentrum II with the now sadly infamous Albertville-Realschule, but Bildungszentrum I in Winnenden, where another 1000 children are taught. It is unspeakably sad to read Delmore Schwartz’ famous poem, which I quoted here, in this entirely different light on the morning of March 12, 2009.


Feel free to etch a postcard on the wall of time:
