Panic on the streets of Berlin

A centrifuge of patriotic mania

And we, the center-

It swirled about us,

A contrast to the silence we touched earlier

In the park, winter-grey.

"This is a moment out of time" I said,

As we stood clinging to each other in the fading light.

And though the chaos ruled the space around our bodies,

In your embrace I felt as if

It was us, alone.
