We present this work in honor of the 25th anniversary of the poet’s death.

May Ayim
1960 – 1996


what should the last words be
fare-well see you again
sometime somewhere?
what should the last deeds be
a last letter a phone call
a soft song?
what should the last wish be
forgive me
forget me not
I love you?
what should the last thought be
thank you?
thank you


Translation by Dagmar Schultz
