VIVA ARTISTI

A choice of a place in Europe would

Mean

To live as a citizen within

Everywhere. Not?

Yes and no.

If you’ll receive a state minimal

Pension-like contribution

When the state or its local gvmt.

Determines the place of living

Where you receive your support.

However.

Living in some European countries

Will have you at a knife’ edge

Due to the cost of living.

One would not feel

That there’s an existence of

A European community

But then…

The cost of living climbing steadily

The state’s support stays a fixed

Amount

Besides the cost of accommodation

Rising yearly with increments.

A decent living for a couple –

The poet knows personally –

Is impossible with the allotted

Monthly payment.

The locked-in couple:

Artist and designer. Survival artists.

Perhaps fate will provide another

Chance for them.

VIVA ARTISTI.
