PoaBL – NINETEEN

Vienna-meetings of

Poet and his spouse

A daily ritual that brings

Together a couple of

Fifty-one years

Thru’ ups and downs

Thru’ ebb and flow

Of physical and mental

Highs and lows.

Since five years of fights

And strain

Living in a bed-sitter.

An instant understanding

Happens

When the poet has been

Offered a night-job

Watching an elderly friend

Who has been recently

A victim of an epileptic

Attack.

From lunchtime onwards

When the couple shares

Coffees and juices

Water and Moroccan mint

Tea

The poet invites his spouse

T a well-seasoned sandwich

At a super shop

Air-conditioned.

They enjoy late lunch on

Barstools

In a pleasant atmosphere.

At the exit they run into

Their friend Pierre

Who has finally received

A finally printed copy of

His book of portraits of

Famous personalities

He had photographed with

Great artistry.

Well done Pierre.

Fashion creator.

Photographer.

He is proud of his work

Showing them a copy

In a nearby café.
