A bar in East Berlin

Where the air was neon thick
And warm and the fan was broke
Or not switched on
Sudocu puzzlers were drawn
To their cigarettes
Under football on the box
Vogt's Bier-Express
Had KissKindl drip mats
And plastic crysanths
Parked in yellow cups
5 beers on tap
The Beatles
And Stalin behind the bar
And a Russian policeman's cap.
image: Vogt's Bier-Express (well worth a visit!)
the poet was there in 2005 or thereabouts and
local team Hertha Berlin were on the TV.


  1. great feeling to this poem brought me back to my days in Germany in the 60s.thankyou.
