A Poetics of Heidegger's "Memorial Address"

Thoughtlessness of thinking thoughts 
Calculative violence productions 
Of instant automations 
Humachinations 
 

Weeping words in earnest longing 
To purity's unmasking 
Of unreflective disappearing 
Unsouling 

Thoughtfullness of thinking thoughts 
Meditative peaceful productions 
Of life deliberations 
Humanizations 

Silence speaks of humanity pleading 
To roots digging 
Of reflective feeding 
Souling 

Branches ask of light's balance 
To think less wetness 
To think full of both 

More or less balancing 
Soulful ambivalence 

More and less balancing 
Human salvation
