Sample text

Doch über die Funkwellen gelangen nur Befehle an uns, und wir selbst dürfen nur knappe Meldungen senden. Ich klettere wieder auf die Brücke. - Das Wetter hat sich eingetrübt. Unter dem Himmel ist eine graue Hülle gespannt. Das Licht der Sonne ist tot und abgestorben. Sie ist nur noch ein weißlicher Fleck, als hinge sie hinter dichtbeschlagenem Glas. Für eine Weile verliere ich mich, über die Gitterstäbe der Reling gebeugt, in der Betrachtung des Wassers, das unter mir brausend und zischend, mit Luft milchig verquirlt, am Boot entlangschießt.

Von den E-Maschinen werden wir aus der Bunkerhöhle gezogen. Bleiches Morgenlicht blendet die Augen. Ein Wolkenstreifen brennt zwischen Lagerhäusern auf. Die Sonne steht noch tief. Sie ist, zwischen zwei Schuppen geklemmt und vom Gerüst eines Kranes vergittert, noch ohne Glanz, ein rötlicher Tupfen im Graublau. Langsam streicht der Bug über die Reihe der Schiffe, die an den Kais liegen, und nimmt die Richtung auf die Ausfahrt auf. Auf einmal durchläuft ein Schüttern das Boot. Die Diesel springen an!

Die Besatzung schließt einen Kreis um ihren Kommandanten, der sich langsam die Lederhandschuhe von den Händen streift, einem nach dem anderen ins Gesicht schaut und dann sagt: „Letzte Reise sind wir mit allen Torpedos und allen Granaten wieder nach Hause gekommen! - War nicht unsere Schuld! - Schön ist es trotzdem nicht! - Paßt bloß auf, daß wir diesmal das Versäumte nachholen! Ohren steifgehalten, und dann wollen wir schon sehen, daß es diesmal klappt. " Ich klettere auf den Turm. Die Farbe an der Leiter ist naß und stumpf, an manchen Stellen klebt sie noch.
