If you are a poet
With a moderate readership
About five novels published
Also as EBooks
Another 30 poetry books
And five novelettes
You have certainly talent
Even if you have not made
It to the bestseller list
Of popular publishing houses.

The bus shakes heavily
Along badly maintained roads
Between Vienna’s outskirts
And the nearby towns
Fit for weekend parties and
Convenient hideaways
A chutzpah for travelling.
Thanks for a starobrno beer
At Heiligenstadt
One can just cope with that.

After the daily schlepp
Of packing books and docu’s
Old casettes and DVD’s
The mind still reasonably alert
Commands the body to rest.
