no better day than this

albeit necessary errands

delaying quality time

walked vivenot-weg

again a few times back

and forth to dr w’s surgery

for a paper to be signed

that this poet is still alive

insurance will then pay

as long as I live –

carl said: let it accumulate

In the bank

until it’s viable to travel to

cape town’s waterfront

for now – life in central

europe is a see-saw event

mask wear in öffis and

at doctor’s/ hospitals/

the poet dons his cool

walking gear and takes

to the kahlenberg/ cobenzl

am himmel – tree-of-birth

circle –

and down again

from heaven to earth

through gspöttgraben to

lovely sievering

for a short while in midst

of varied hues of healthy

living greens and trees

felt like a human being

near heaven.
