Hackescher Markt S-Bahn No.9
Two women board together
It is the summer solstice
Street names are changing hourly
Communists killed by Nazis are the first names to be removed
The names of fighter pilots are allowed to stay
I hear one woman say to the other are you GDR dreaming again?
You have to change trains if you want to see the place where Rosa Luxemburg was murdered and sunk into the Landwehrkanal
When we reach the Reichstag I notice that the woman facing East has climbed onto the lap of the other woman who is facing West
They start kissing while passing though the largest construction site in the world
Ten stops down people are debating whether to remove the statues of Marx and Engels from the Marx-Engels Forum
They change seats. One bites the back of the other's neck,
while denying any GDR dreaming.
The American Embassy is surrounded by barbed wire and Polizei.
America is precision bombing again.
One woman has her head in the other's lap.
Her index finger traces the other woman's lower lip and then disappears inside her mouth
There is a red fox in the Tiergarten
