FIVE YEARS AGO

FIVE YEARS AGO

5 years ago
the world was different.
The sky was open
in front of our windows.
All these houses had not been built.
You could look east
and see the sun rise
right from the railways.
Actually I don’t mind the houses,
I don’t mind the bridge,
I don’t mind the garbage disposal,
although I liked the trees and the weeds
and the wild roses that were there before.
Our house is new, too.
There are still rabbits or even hares
behind and between.
The world has moved on
in terrible ways.
For us in Vienna
here in this house,
here in this quarter,
we can feel privileged.
First of four Sundays
before Christmas.
So today we light the first candle.
People do it for Chanukah, too.
It’s Thanksgiving weekend.
Take care now, y’all.
