    Paul Celan
    “Speak you too,
    speak as the last,
    say out your say.

    But don’t split off No from Yes.
    Give your say this meaning too:
    Give it the shadow.

    Give it shadow enough,
    Give it as much
    As you know is spread round you from
    Midnight to midday and midnight.

    Look around:
    See how things all come alive-
    By death! Alive!
    Speaks true who speaks shadow.

    But now the place shrinks, where you stand:
    Where now, shadow-stripped, where?
    Climb. Grope upwards.
    Thinner you grow, less knowable, finer!
    Finer: a thread
    The star wants to descend on:
    So as to swim down beliow, down here
    Where it sees itself shimmer:in the swell
    Of wandering words.”
    Paul Celan

    Vladimir Mayakovsky
    “A line is a fuse

    is blown to bits.”

    “Largohu sysh, të bindem menjëherë
    Largohu zemre, e zemra të bindet
    Largohu kujtimit, ah jo këtë herë
    Kujtimi im e yti nuk na binden

    E ditën qoftë a natën në ç'do vend
    Kudo ku kemi qarë a kemi pasë gëzime
    Me ty do të jem unë ne ç'do kënd
    Kudo ku shpirti im ka lënë thërrime”
    Adam Mickieviç
