ZJG-The Hospital Poems: Arrival at the Hospital

An early morning walk

Along icy windswept pavements

From the train station Korneuburg

Written at the Landesklinik: KOR

For short

Where fifteen minutes later I am

Thawing up at reception

The smell of cleansing chemicals

Huff and puff of patients

Waiting at the overcrowded

Hall of the pre-anesthetics control:

Blood pressure

Blood samples

Blood taking at all times awaits us

The pregnant woman

Like the teenage boy

The public servant

The highly impatient woman

The artist

Who with one foot in his garden

Of imagination

Creates the foreplay sketches

To his next canvas

Just like making love to his Muse.


The fear of contracting a cold

Has waned in the slide show of

Beautiful Muses

Dancing in the artist’s garden

Of fantastic creation

In their glowing nude.


Yet the future of love is uncertain

It has and will always oscillate.
