In the above contribution to the Creative Literary Arts section, published in issue 13(2) of Psychoanalytic Perspectives, a typographical error regrettably appeared in the poem which altered the author’s intended meaning.

The corrected stanza appears below.


this is not

what I feel

when I think of you …

You, mother, Mutti,

in my mother-tongue,

you gave me

the gift of life.

Without you

there would be no I,

and: I love

being alive.

How can I hope

to ever thank you

sufficiently for that?


you, and, of course,

my father, with God’s grace

and blessings,

knew each other, and—


conceived, and you

gave birth,

to me—

at a time

when all around us

there was hell,

doubly so:

the hell of Nazi-Germany,

and the inferno

of its cataclysmic end

in war:

bombs, burning houses,

and dead bodies in the streets

of my hometown

in Northern Germany.
