From Paul Celan's "Death Fugue"

On the 71st anniversary of Kristallnacht.

He shouts
       jab this earth deeper you lot there
       you others sing up and play
he grabs at the rod in his belt
       he swings it
       his eyes are so blue
jab your spades deeper
       you lot there
       you others play on for the dancing
