The depths of Dr. M.K.

"Only the man who has raised his strings
among the dark ghosts also
should feel his way toward the endless praise.

Only he who has eaten poppy
with the dead, from their poppy,
will never lose even
his most delicate sound.

Even though images in the pool
seem so blurry:
grasp the main thing.

Only in the double kingdom, there
alone, will voices become
undying and tender."

Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Robert Bly)
