Read introduction

I felt a bit mean writing this poem - but the woman made a big impression on me - though not in the way she intended or thought.

Evening in the Biergarten

The sun climbs the wall
Chased by shadow.

She was beautiful
Twenty years ago,

But you can only tell
By the way she looks at others:

She still expects
To be adored.

Dusk embraces her,
Night comes.
