Leaving Australia

still in australia

Half around the world, again; clouds move like camels across the Australian outback, and each time I look out of the window, the landscape has changed. Far: it could be the sea, only red and brown. Zoom: it could be the skin of a snake. It takes a long time to leave Australia, at least half a day. And then there came the sea, and I slept.


Halb um die Welt, schon wieder; Wolken zogen wie Kamele über das australische Outback, und jedes Mal, wenn ich aus dem Fenster schaute, hatte sich die Landschaft verändert. Fern: es könnte das Meer sein, nur rot und braun. Nah: es könnte Schlangenhaut sein. Es dauert lange, um Australien zu verlassen, mindestens einen halben Tag. Und dann kam das Meer, und ich schlief.
