Berlin Stills

26/09 - on the road

BERLIN STILLS
by Dara Mandle

On a makeshift stage
in the park, three men
rap about not working:

los, los, wir arbeitslos.

                []

Lindens in sequins
shimmy in the breeze.

                []

Sally blends brandy
and egg yolks with a look
that breaks us.

                []

Hot pink peonies
on the plain white desk
before the window open
onto S-Bahn tracks.

                []

Each night late
on the arty channel
Gerard Depardieu
smells his fingers.

                []

Casablanca at the Kino Blow Up
and I forget what else.

                []

Anxiety, old projectionist,
parts the little curtains.
