The Wind of Change in August 1989

On 12-13 August 1989, there was a Peace Music Festival in Moscow. Of course, I didn’t know the title then. I just knew plenty of rock bands went there to perform. A thrilling summer. Not for political reasons. There are several summers in everyone’s life that are more thrilling than usual.
Another draft: November PAD, Day 13 – A Memory poem

In 1989, Scorpions went to Moscow
And played the Wind of Change on Lenin Stadium

Broadcasting live on the Russian National
Reaching our TV sets
At least, the good ones.

At rather unacceptable hours –
After midnight

The snowflake-covered screen showed no real picture
Played no real sound
Apart from the white noise.

The time for change had come
Only I didn’t know it yet.

Memory

This being just about the perfect summer, here is a new poem I just came upon in my mind:

fire love

Memory
I would like to remember you
And I
In the garden bower
Next to the dying barbecue
Staring at the cloudy sky
Starless and silent
Staring back at
You and me
Young, believing and
In love.

Memory of a Glass House

* MEMORY OF A GLASS HOUSE*

I remember a winter

in a house made of glass

naked, numb, stupefied

 –

I remember yearning to go

and get lost in the snow

But how would you know?
