Red Right Hand
one hand
    and one hand more
one left hand
    and one right hand
two hands
one hand, five fingers;
    two hands, ten fingers
ten fingers
ten nails
the devil has gentle hands
and in his left; a ball
    and in his right; a ball
two balls
one blue ball
    and one red
the devil caresses me when I sleep
in his left hand; the blue ball
    in his right hand; the red
the blue ball is round
    the red one as well
the blue ball,
    is the same size,
    as the red - but only just
the blue ball is small, small enough to fit in the devil's hand,
    the red one

and the devil drops the blue ball,
and the blue ball falls towards the ground
and it keeps falling
until eternity strikes twelve - minus one second
and the blue ball hits the ground --
    and bounces

and then the devil drops the red ball,
and the red ball falls equally fast towards the ground,
and it keep falling
until eternity strikes twelve - sharp
and the red ball hits the ground --
    and stops

wait...

the blue ball bounces up - and down
the red ball lies still

wait...

the blue still bounces up - and down
the red ball lies still

wait...

the blue ball stop.
the red ball lies still

>>>smile

and with his gentle, warm, caressing left hand,
the devil picks up the blue ball

and with his gentle, warm, caressing right hand,
the devil picks up the red ball

the devil holds the blue ball in his left hand,
and in his right the red

the devil smiles - again
and squeezes the blue ball;
    and squezzes the red ball
the blue ball resists -
    the red ball bursts

the devil looks down -
    surprised -
at his red right hand
