One of my favourite words is ‘Auspuff’. German words have this ridiculous way of sounding like the things that they describe. ‘Auspuff’ means exhaust-pipe and its no nonsense poetry feels strangely beautiful.
I love being wrong and misunderstood. I have new eyes and a fancy-dress tongue. Its hilarious that I can speak these sensuous, gurgling words and people act as if they understand – words that are so bodily they feel like you should only speak them in private.
