BRATISLAVA II

BRATISLAVA II

the danube flows
in the evening people sit in the sun
on the southwestern side
in the summer months
there are concerts on the main square
and in the cafés
the views are great from the castle
and from the liberation monument
and cemetery further up
some of the soldiers buried are women
in the summer months
the synagogue is open
as a museum
they have a nice garden
it is a functioning synagogue
all year round
the only one left
they had bigger ones
even after the war
after the holocaust
now this is the only one left
they built a freeway
interstate quality
right through the old city
it’s a functioning freeway
it’s a beautiful city
shabby in places, but proud
somehow still healing
the danube flows

FÜR ELIS GEBURTSTAG

FÜR ELIS GEBURTSTAG

die sonne versinkt in stammersdorf
wir sind in groß-jedlersdorf
bei elis 50. geburtstag
petra hat auch geburtstag
es gibt roten satz
ich hätte mein buch mitbringen sollen
das abendrot wird immer stärker
am anfang lila am ende grün
dazwischen ganz viel rot und orange
vom kahlenberg zum bisamberg
dazwischen häuser und andere berge
und rosen und kräne
vielleicht klosterneuburg
irgendetwas blinkt in der ferne
da sind die sterne
in beijing waren es höchstens 15
sagt maia
juliane und linda
reden von mai- und junikäfern
welche sind eine plage
welche waren ganz selten
in den letzten jahren
gibt es nicht viele gelsen
in der lobau
vielleicht auch nicht im erzgebirge
es gibt zwei große schöne balkone
zum rauchen zum trinken zum essen zum treffen
ich rauche heimlich eine mit marcus
er ist zurück aus griechenland
wolfgang ambros in der kinettn
oder doch georg danzer
wild horses
und viele viele viele dazwischen
ganz viele bilder
eine bildergeschichte mit kreisky
als kleiner hund
und umgekehrt
ein bisschen tanzen
ein schönes fest
maia und ich fahren nach hause
untertags war ich noch in der donau
leo war noch viel kürzer drin
maia und ich waren am burgtheater
eine demo zum flüchtlingsgipfel
einer der redner
sagt seit dem märz
sei ein jahr schon vergangen
mir geht es auch so
von stammersdorf nach favoriten
gottseidank gibts die schnellbahn
liebe eli, ganz vielen dank
alles, alles gute
ich hätt mein buch
mitbringen sollen
