Charcoal, pastel on cardboard 35" X 27"

By poem Else Lasker-Schüler

Back home I have a blue piano
Yet I can’t play a single note.

It’s been standing in the shadow of the cellar door
Since the world became savage.

Four star-hands played it before
– The moon lady sang in the boat –
Now the rats dance to the clattering.

The keyboard’s smashed to pieces.
I weep for the blue deceased.

Oh dear angels, open up for me
– I’ve eaten from the bitter bread –
The gate to heaven while I’m still living –
Even though it’s forbidden.
