In the collection of texts, Hautflügelmieder, big themes are addressed in small details and symbolic images, which are brought to life in Johanna Spitzmüller's drawings. Illness and health, body and mind, life and death struggle for attention, the goal is always the truth, no matter what rhyming facades it hides in its dress of delicate words. In the in-between of prosaic poetry and lyrical prose, the I in its various faces forms the center of the stories and explores the relationships to oneself and to others.

Outside and inside are often only separated by an infinitely thin line, which connects fragments, overcomes borders and becomes emotionally concentrated, so that the common thread of Hautflügelmieder becomes recognizable in the interaction of text and image. The pen is not set down, the narration runs vertically, because poetry lives beyond any horizon.
