Evelyn Posamentier The 2River View, 7.4 (Summer 2003)

zelinkagasse, i’m feeling lucky.
i google you out & find cafes.
or i can have an agency
run a credit check this century
in the very bedroom daddy
slept in before europe gasped
& jewish blood clogged the drains.
i’m embarrassed by the fine vienna weather.
the receptionist at the credit agency
is young & cannot spell the word war.
she allows me to send your grandson
an email from these sleek offices.
zelinkagasse, vienna of the lucky cafes.
vienna online, how history shivers.
