Appreciation: artist Dana Gordon
A Studio Visit with Gwyneth Leech

Berlin Stills

26/09 - on the road

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.
