Sunday morning in Gruga Park, Essen. Just after 9 a.m., around 12 degrees Celsius, next to the Beos and grey parrots. The chattering and whistling of the birds did not disturb the self-absorption of these two gentlemen.

My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk:
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen,
And with thee fade away into the forest dim ...
