zorba’s portrait

it’s great to meet the owner

of a greek restaurant/

in the heart of vienna’s

history of a tested past/

who runs an excellent place

well-designed with an esoteric

décor of photographs/

great atmosphere / sleek-styled

streamlined/ in a pointed flow/

phalanx of bronze warrior-lance/

then zorba emerging from the


of the cretan sea

zeus’ fast and furious heroes

pushing the one great weapon:

freedom/ elephtheria/ aha.

zorba’s portrait kissed by his

woman. well?

if the artist ever qualifies for

landing a painting or two

at his pub-space

enhanced by good lighting

he’s done pretty well

thanks to his friend

who likes cretan cuisine.

surely – zorba’s portrait sticks

to one’s mind like tzatziki and

cretan wine.
