I've read this several times now and especially love the ending!

What a rhythm, jesus. I hear a kind of stomping in my head while reading the last two lines.
while all around him
the whores were selling their bodies
like beautiful things the bees like,
like beautiful things that bloom.

Jawohl, Gesang ist Dasein
Those are such sweet singing lines that are very hard to get out of one's head...
