Adornos’ Sweat

Setback or discovery?
Evidence or puzzlement?
***
I’m so sorry comrade Adorno,
After Auschwitz,
There’s Poetry yet: Survived!
***
But amusingly, what gets obsessed
Is a different kind of veiled fact
And its mammoth statement:
***
A cozy narrative
A snobbish self-esteem
A no name but: Religion.
***
I’m so sorry comrade Adorno,
After Auschwitz,
There’s Poetry & so on.
