Herta Muller Poetry?

I'm happy that Herta Müller won the Nobel prize for literature because her life was shaped by decades of struggle against Eastern European dictatorship. I was told all her poems are beautiful and reflect some of the suffering she's been through.
Is there a special website with Herta's poetry? Where can I read some of her poems?

You won't find much of her poetry on the web.

Since leaving Romania in 1987 Herta Muller has established herself as an important figure in German literary and intellectual life through her novels and essays.

Although Müller left Romania over 20 years ago, she returns constantly to the themes of oppression, exile and dictatorship in her novels and poems, which also include The Appointment, about a young woman during Ceausescu's regime who works in a clothes factory, and sews notes into the suits of men bound for Italy, saying "marry me".

Here's one of her great books:
