Memories emerge in my head
and dissolve just as quickly.
We’re taking a walk,
someplace in Hallstatt.
The city is asleep,
or abandoned, I can’t recall.
night is far fetched
and unbearable,
but it doesn’t bother us.
You whisper a secret
and I seal it, for eternity.
We’ve left hours behind.
Trees are stretched above as a sky,
sheltering us
against the cold bitter wind.
A luminous body of stars
naked and flickering,
guide us in this foreign town while
the night takes us by the hand
and swallow us whole.

―R.
