The literary scholar Stephan Opitz once promised the writer Peter Rühmkorf that he would manage his estate, now he has the salad. an encounter.


Hilmar Klute

Hamburg, at the end of the 1980s, i.e. in the penultimate carefree decade of the post-war period. Stephan Opitz, literary scholar and Joachim Kersten, lawyer, meet Peter Rühmkorf in a restaurant in the city. Good food, wine, plus schnapps, and Rühmkorf recites poems by his spiritual brother Joachim Ringelnatz all evening long, preferably the beautiful, almost Rilkean one about the fountain in Wimpfen (“You’re not a you,/ water.- wouldn’t have rest/ me listen to”).
