angels

I’ve never been to Berlin
but I understand they have angels
sitting atop Tiergarten
watching
waiting
probably
they are here as well
perhaps
one is sitting on the corner of that building
right where the red brick meets the white
watching
waiting
silent
desire under glass
and after all
what can angels do
beyond reminding me
by their powerless strength
of my terrible freedom
