Von allem Sehe ich nur der Fischer rissiges Garnnetz. Warum rede ich nur davon Daß die vierzigjährige Häuslerin gekrümmt geht? Die Brüste der Mädchen Sind warm wie ehedem. In meinem Lied ein Reim Käme mir fast vor wie Übermut. In mir streiten sich Die Begeisterung über den blühenden Apfelbaum Und das Entsetzen über die Reden des Anstreichers.

The poem comprises a sequence of Brechtian “lateral thinking”, that is, the poet does not approach a problem directly, but from the side, or from the opposite, and especially through the unexpected concrete example.
However, such moments are unusual, and rudeness is usually linked to a higher purpose. Brecht chose not to publish one of his most vulgar poems, “Sonett über einen durchschnittlichen Beischlaf ” (1926), but his changing the title from “guten” to “durchschnittlichen” 9 reveals something for which his work is seldom explored: the playful side of his creativity.

The urge to play is also obvious in his including defecation as an important element of “Anstrengung”.

And although by no means all of Brecht’s poems provide ambiguous directions of this kind, his best certainly do. They drive us onwards as we sift through – often mutually exclusive – possibilities. 3 In Brecht this is deliberate, because his aim is not a simple depiction of the world. As he emphasized in a response to a poem by Wordsworth, poetry involves far more than simple representation, and reading this genre is therefore a taxing exercise: Lyrik ist niemals bloßer Ausdruck.
