Sitting on a well-upholstered
Listening to an opera performance
On a video screen subconsciously
Staring through the double window
To an early wintry atmosphere of
The inner city.
The Opera-Pharmacy advertises
In bold electronics in multiple
The figurative façade of Hotel Bristol
With warm amber effect lighting
Has transferred into the Café’s interior
Tinkering noises from the espresso
Corner mixes with my thoughts
About Time & Eternity
Neo-Classical mixes with Art Deco
Styles and sips of black coffee
From a red cup keeps my mind
Expanding into the dusky skies.
Water from the Rax-spring.
Dreaming of the ‘King of Ice’.
