12. Curriculum Vitae
14. by Lisel Mueller
15.
16. 1) I was born in a Free City, near the North Sea.
17.
18. 2) In the year of my birth, money was shredded into confetti. A loaf of bread
cost a million marks. Of course I do not remember this.
19.
20. 3) Parents and grandparents hovered around me. The world I lived in had a
soft voice and no claws.
21.
22. 4) A cornucopia filled with treats took me into a building with bells. A widebosomed teacher took me in.
23.
24. 5) At home the bookshelves connected heaven and earth.
25.
26. 6) On Sundays the city child waded through pinecones and primrose
marshes, a short train ride away.
27.
28. 7) My country was struck by history more deadly than earthquakes or
hurricanes.
29.
30. 8) My father was busy eluding the monsters. My mother told me the walls had
ears. I learned the burden of secrets.
31.
32. 9) I moved into the too bright days, the too dark nights of adolescence.
33.
34. 10) Two parents, two daughters, we followed the sun and the moon across
the ocean. My grandparents stayed behind in darkness.
35.
36. 11) In the new language everyone spoke too fast. Eventually I caught up with
them.
37.
38. 12) When I met you, the new language became the language of love.
39.
40. 13) The death of the mother hurt the daughter into poetry. The daughter
became a mother of daughters.
41.
42. 14) Ordinary life: the plenty and thick of it. Knots tying threads to everywhere.
The past pushed away, the future left unimagined for the sake of the glorious,
difficult, passionate present.
43.
44. 15) Years and years of this.

55.

45.
46. 16) The children no longer children. An old man's pain, an old man's
loneliness.
47.
48. 17) And then my father too disappeared.
49.
50. 18) I tried to go home again. I stood at the door to my childhood, but it was
closed to the public.
51.
52. 19) One day, on a crowded elevator, everyone's face was younger than mine.

We follow, you and I.
